Immune Boosting Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle soup is a classic. Whether it’s a cold, wet day or you’re coming down with a cold, chicken noodle soup is a great remedy when made with organic bone broth (so easy to make at home!). The immune boosting properties of bone broth are from minerals (both rare and some common in our diets) in a form your body can absorb (thanks to the cartilage). We’ve taken everyone’s favorite and filled it with […]

Lemon Basil Chicken

Lemon Basil Chicken is one of our favorite ways way to work vegetables into dinner. Though it takes some time to prepare, it requires little effort. Most of the time is allowing the juices to simmer together; letting the lemon, basil and other herbs infuse flavor into the vegetables. This already dairy-free recipe can be served over gluten-free pasta or make it paleo by serving over quinoa!

It works with boneless or bone-in chicken breasts, thighs or drumsticks (whatever you have on hand). Plus it’s delicious! The combination of balsamic vinegar and chicken, adapted from Paleo Fresh, makes this especially healthy. Balsamic vinegar helps your body absorb the protein in the chicken. […]

Greek Lemon Chicken is a great way to mix up your weekly meal plan. It’s unique flavor pairs well with couscous, rice, salad, quinoa or a variety of different vegetables.
