Cold and Flu season is here. When someone in my family is sick, I make this quick recipe to warm and comfort them. A simple chicken soup is easy to make and this recipe is ready to serve in about 30 minutes. For my kids, who eat more carbs, I add a little cooked pasta or rice to their bowls. My husband and I like this low carb chicken soup recipe as is. I love soups and stews and will make them year round, but during the winter they are a major staple in my house.
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.
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.
