Simple Soups for Tired Folks
      12/22/05 11:10 AM

These are what I ate as I moved from BTC to the main EFI diet and what I eat when I'm having or after an IBS attack. I don't have much experience or technique when it comes to cooking, but I think these soups taste pretty good. Also, they don't have much seasoning because after an attack, I'm usually nauseated and not up for big flavor.

Easy Chicken Soup (about 2 servings)
2 organic chicken breasts
2 celery ribs, sliced
2 carrots, sliced, or a handful of whole baby carrots
2 white potatoes or Yukon Gold (NOT baking potatoes) - peeling is optional, the skins are thin enough that they're okay to eat
1 c LF/FF organic chicken broth or vegetable broth

1. In a stock pot, add celery, carrots, potatoes and add enough water to cover vegetables. Add salt and broth. Bring to a boil. Boil for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

2. In the meantime, cook the chicken breasts in a non-stick skillet in their own juices. When chicken is cooked, cube or chop into bite-sized pieces. (You could buy pre-cooked chicken, already chopped into cubes, and just toss it into the soup.)

3. Reduce heat to simmer once vegetables are tender, add chicken. Simmer an additional 15-20 minutes.

**You can eat this with crackers, but I prefer corn tortillas since they naturally contain some calcium.

Quickie Garlic Shiitake Soup (serves 1)
1 cup organic chicken or vegetable broth
1-2 large cloves of garlic, minced
1/2-1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced (I would cook the mushrooms in a small nonstick pan first to bring out their flavor a bit more)
1/2 cup crinkle cut carrots, frozen, (or baby carrots)
soy sauce/tamari to taste

1. To the broth add garlic.

2. Bring to a boil, add carrots, mushrooms, and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

3. Add soy sauce/tamari to taste.

**I usually eat it with a cup of sticky rice or brown rice or mashed potatoes and corn tortillas. But I'm sure you could skip the rice and add more herbs or other vegetables.

Store-Bought/Prepared Progresso Manhattan Clam Chowder
If tomatoes don't bother you and you don't have a shellfish allergy, this soup is perfect! And it doesn't contain MSG! Of course, it's not as good as homemade MCC, but it's still tasty and easy to reheat. I made some shrimp the other day and added the leftovers to this soup - excellent! Good with French bread or, um, corn tortillas.
