Tomato Basil Soup
Summer officially starts tomorrow, but I am still enjoying soup! They are quick, easy, are nutrient dense and have a host of health benefits...what's not to love?

One of the main reasons I enjoy soup year round is because it is incredible for gut repair. Having Hashimoto's, an autoimmune condition, and a long history of digestive issues, gut health is a top priority for me.

Did you know that all autoimmune conditions start in the gut? Yep. That is one reason I bang on about ditching tears up the gut!

But, we don't only need to eliminate the foods that are irritating the gut, we also need to add in foods and nutrients that heal the gut...And this is where soup comes in.

The base of any soup should include bone broth. This is healing and sealing to the gut. While some people are happy to just drink a cup of bone broth (myself included in the cooler months), many people either don't like it or don't want a hot drink on a summer day.

Having the bone broth in the soup allows you to get the benefits without having the fuss.

One more thing before we get to the recipe...

I am a massive fan of protein. If you don't know why, please search the blog for mental health and read up.

This tomato basil soup doesn't have any protein in it, which means you need to add some to have a complete meal.

I add roast chicken or grass-fed meatballs to it, but if you prefer a meat-free option, just add some collagen powder to it. Collagen is amazing because it is heat safe, completely dissolves and doesn't change the taste or texture of anything. You won't even know it is there!

Okay...onto the recipe!
