Chicken soup, when made from scratch is one of the healthiest foods going. It contains a good amount of collagen, and nutrients extracted from the bone marrow. It has the goodness of the veggies that are put in it, including celery, carrot, onion, etc. I like to put some cubes of firm tofu in mine and turnip as well. Another great addition to chicken soup is celery root. Also, you can replace the starchy noodles with pearl barley, brown rice, or steel-cut oats to make it even more nutritious (but I love whole-wheat dumplings in mine). It is also easy to digest and relatively low in calories. Best of all, it tastes wonderful with a hint of sage, a bit of salt, and pepper.
It's a good thing to give to Mr. CSalt. He will appreciate it, and you, and you can sit by his side with a bowl for you as well.
