"Chicken and Vegetable Soup is a comforting soup which is healthy and taste delicious with some breadsticks."
Chicken and Vegetable Soup is one of the easiest soup you could ever make. Not only this soup is hearty and filling but is highly nutritious as well. I personally make this for lunch and have it with some breadsticks.
Toasted bread would be perfect with this soup as well. Garlic bread will be yummy too. You need some kind of spongy bread to soak up the creamy goodness.
This soup can be easily had when you are in keto
WAYS TO LOWER CARBS IN SOUPS AND STEWS
- Choose low carb vegetables.
- Use a smaller amount of higher carb vegetables like onions, garlic.
- Add more meat than veggies.
- Skip the flour and use almond flour.
For all those who are new to keto diet:
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used mainly to treat hard-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.
Normally carbohydrates in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is important in fueling brain function. But if little carbohydrate remains in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies, the latter passing into the brain and replacing glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood (a state called ketosis) eventually lowers the frequency of epileptic seizures. Around half of children and young people with epilepsy who have tried some form of this diet saw the number of seizures drop by at least half, and the effect persists after discontinuing the diet. Some evidence shows that adults with epilepsy may benefit from the diet and that a less strict regimen, such as a modified Atkins diet, is similarly effective. Side effects may include constipation, high cholesterol, growth slowing, acidosis, and kidney stones.
You can add more vegetables in this soup. Like cauliflower, zucchini to make it more whole some. You can serve this soup with my keto 90 second bread for much more filling meal.
EASY AND FAST HOMEMADE CHICKEN SOUP RECIPE
Start by sautéing the vegetables in butter, Add the chicken and stir. Next comes the chicken broth. Heat until it comes to a boil, then turn it down to a simmer. Add the chicken and warm through. Done.
You can use boneless chicken cubes. So you dont have to bother removing the bones from the chicken soup. Use chicken thighs instead of breast. Since breast will go stringy and rubbery while thighs stays nice and juicy.
