Summary: SCD Chicken Tortilla Soup is an EASY and nutritious family favorite that my kidos ask me to make! We have this soup year round, not just on cold Fall and winter nights. It’s a great way to increase your children’s vegetable and bone broth consumption, And if you must have ‘tortilla chips’, try the below substitute! Tip: Grill twice as many chicken breasts as you need for the week and make this soup in bulk. Often I quadruple this recipe and freeze portions. My kidos always take it back to college, and often, I use frozen soups as my “ice” for travel! If you happen to have a lot of leftover chicken or turkey (think Thanksgiving), this recipe makes great use of it! The “hot” seasonings — simply adjust to your family’s preference. Last, I’m sharing for the first time, my real thoughts on our pre-SCD meals (in hindsight) along with where the healing recipes that I post are really rooted. Clue: “There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.” ― Aldo Leopold,
Summary: Most everyone wonders what are the ingredients that make up healing diet holiday recipes and that create nutrient dense, anti-inflammatory, low toxin great tasting traditional food that even folks not on any dietary restrictions will enjoy.

I’m sharing four of my family’s and guests favorite holiday recipes (and my Pinterest Holiday board shares more) for our Butternut Squash Soup opener and incredible Whole Beef Tenderloin recipe which literally melts in your mouth and is great topped with Alton Brown’s Horseradish Cream Sauce or our fav Mushroom Sauce. The Horseradish Cream Sauce uses SCD 24 hour dripped yogurt (or Greek yogurt), and it is also a great salad dressing! We’ve tested lots of recipes but these stand the test of time and remain our holiday tradition first course and main entree. It is interesting that long before I even knew what a healing diet truly was, the soup, tenderoin, and mushroom sauce recipes are coincidentally also autoimmune-protocol (AIP) compliant as well as PALEO, SCD, AND GAPS compliant. The Horseradish Cream Sauce is PALEO, SCD, AND GAPS compliant, but not AIP compliant due to the dairy. AIP is explained further below, but suffice it to say AIP is perhaps the most challenging of the healing diets due to the vast amount of foods eliminated, albeit this is temporary. I bet some of your own family favorites are AIP compliant!

Quitting things cold turkey can be hard; I do not recommend such.
Try eliminating the bad by crowding it out with better alternatives. Use the lessons learned in this healing refrigerator for what you can change up in yours. You can not stop everything you’re doing if you are not prepared to replace it with healthier alternatives. And most important, you can not make the transition over night.
