Healthy And Delicious Chicken Noodle Soup Recipes

Updated on January 18, 2016

Easy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipes

I simply love chicken noodle soup. I could literally eat it every other day. When cooking the smell drifts around each room through the windows and out the door. It's so satisfying, comforting and soothing.

However the canned soup products have a mountain of salt. What I used to do is get four cans, keep one as is and take the other three empty them in a colander and rinse thoroughly with warm water. Most times I put Mrs. Dash, a bit of tumeric, then added water. Now that is good eating. This process helped but did not solve the problem of too much salt. I guessed that the salt that preserves the soup was inside of the noodles and not just in the broth. I have high blood pressure and look for all things low sodium.

So I had a good idea to make it myself. I decided to experiment and customize it in my own way. I have tried turkey, chicken gizzards, rice, small cabbage pieces, cumin, basil, garlic, peas, cooking wine, scallions, bay leaves, shrimp, mushrooms, and always celery, onion and carrots. I don't add these all together but with different variations. My main seasoning is all of the Mrs. Dash flavors, pepper, both black and white. I am also known to put a bit of cheyenne pepper in from time to time.

What Dr. Oz Says

About The Soup

It's thought that many of the symptoms of a cold, including that runny nose and cough, are related to your body's inflammatory immune response to fighting off the invading virus. A study in the journal Chest actually looked at what effect chicken soup has on the immune cells that cause these symptoms.

The researchers found that chicken soup appears to inhibit neutrophil chemotaxis, or the movement of certain immune cells to mucous membrane surfaces. The migration of these cells to surface cells in the airways may be partially responsible for mucous production. The scientists concluded that chicken soup may have anti-inflammatory properties that help dampen cold symptoms.

Chicken soup also helps you to stay hydrated, which is key to recovery. Though people watching their sodium intake might want to be wary of having too much since the broth is often salty, chicken soup is packed with electrolytes that may help people drink and retain even more fluids than water or commercial electrolyte drinks. The soups salt, steam and heat can also help thin mucus, making it easier to expel, and soothe irritated passageways in your nose and throat.

The Health Benefit of Carrots

10 Reasons to Eat More Carrots

Carrots are more than a tasty addition to soups, salads and juices. They are also good for your body’s overall health, especially that of the skin, eyes, digestive system and teeth!

So if the sweet flavor isn’t enough, enjoy these 10 reasons to eat more carrots:

1. Beta carotene: Carrots are a rich source of this powerful antioxidant, which, among other vital uses, can be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin.

2. Digestion: Carrots increase saliva and supply essential minerals, vitamins and enzymes that aid in digestion. Eating carrots regularly may help prevent gastric ulcers and other digestive disorders.

3. Alkaline elements: Carrots are rich in alkaline elements, which purify and revitalize the blood while balancing the acid/alkaline ratio of the body.

4. Potassium: Carrots are a good source of potassium, which can help maintain healthy sodium levels in the body, thereby helping to reduce elevated blood pressure levels.

5. Dental Health: Carrots kill harmful germs in the mouth and help prevent tooth decay.

6. Wounds: Raw or grated carrots can be used to help heal wounds, cuts and inflammation.

7. Phytonutrients: Among the many beneficial phytochemicals that carrots contain is a phytonutrient called falcarinol, which may reduce the risk of colon cancer and help promote overall colon health.

8. Carotenoids: Carrots are rich in carotenoids, which our bodies can use to help regulate blood sugar.

9. Fiber: Carrots are high in soluble fiber, which may reduce cholesterol by binding the LDL form (the kind we don’t want) and increasing the HDL form (the kind our body needs) to help reduce blood clots and prevent heart disease.

10. Eyes, hair, nails and more! The nutrients in carrots can improve the health of your eyes, skin, hair, nails and more through helping to detoxify your system and build new cells!

There are plenty more reasons to enjoy these crunchy, sweet root vegetables, so reserve a spot in your garden plot for planting some, or pop down to the local market to pick up a bunch!
