Today I am grateful for soup.
It’s not sexy, and it’s not wild, but homemade soup has become my new favorite thing to eat. My mom and I are taking a page out of the GAPS diet and we’re making our own broth, which is not exactly labor intensive, but it is time intensive.
Did you know that you’re ideally supposed to let that stuff cook for 36 hours???
Well you are. And let me tell you, it’s worth it. I finally understand why you’re supposed to have chicken soup when you’re sick, and it’s not for the noodles. It’s for the thick, mineral rich, gelatinous broth that is satisfying and soothing all at once. We bought some chicken feet at a local farm, threw a few of those in and DANG. A world of difference. The broth was almost meaty.
I’ve never been an enormous lover of soup. But now I’m having it for breakfast. I’ll have some broth for a snack and feel satiated (obviously not if I’m super hungry, but just if I’m wanting a small snack, it does the trick). I don’t know how I’ll do all of this broth making in the summer, but at least for now, I’m a soup convert.
What’s your gratiTUDE, today?
What is a “GratiTUDE”?:
GratiTUDE is a general attitude of thankfulness and gratefulness.
What is “What’s Your GratiTUDE?”: Every day, for as long as I can keep it going, I’m going to tell you something I’m grateful for. I want to do this because I want to remind myself how fortunate I am in a more concrete way. They will be small things, big things, meaningful things, and seemingly inconsequential things. They may repeat on some days if I happen to feel grateful for the same thing more than once. I’m not planning it or mapping it out. I’m just feeling grateful, publicly. And I’d like you, if you’re feeling it, to do the same.
