A healing soup
We are massive fans of the Wellness Practioner John Way and his Naturopathic principles. John works on the whole person by taking an holistic approach to healing and by using natural approaches, like nutrition, herbal medicine and lifestyle changes. Treating the cause, rather than the symptoms.
We look forward to sharing some of John’s insights, recipes and knowledge. This week he has a soup recipe for us.
John’s Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup is perfect for this time of year with all the coughs, colds and viruses flying around. This soothing and delicious soup, also good for the digestion, will get you through the festive season. Make batches of it that can be heated up in an instant for when you’re feeling tired, stressed or have been overdoing it and in need of a bowl of nourishment.
