Spring Greens Minestrone Soup

This soup takes literally minutes to come together and is a delicious way to pack in loads of green goodness into your day.

Bone broth takes it to the next level. Bone broth is nourishing for the gut and provides many of the building blocks required for repair and maintenance.

I find that gently cooked vegetables can be so much easier on the gut. So if you are someone who struggles to digest a lot of cold salads, I highly recommend trying a soup like this, even in summer, to ensure you are getting adequate vegetables throughout the warmer weather.
