Compiled Recipe – Healing Asian Soup With Ginger

Healing Asian Soup With Ginger

Ingredients:
* 4 cups homemade chicken stock (canned low sodium chicken broth; both would work too)
* 4 slices fresh ginger root
* 1 cup sliced mushrooms (any type; however, mild white mushrooms is best recommended as it is more soothing for the tummy)
* 1 cup spinach leaves (sliced into thin ribbons)
* 1 green onion (very thinly sliced)

Procedures:
1) In medium saucepan, bring chicken stock to a low simmer. Add ginger slices and let simmer at least 15 minutes or longer. (Taste to see if you have as much ginger flavor as you’d like.) If you’d like a clear soup, use a yogurt strainer or coffee filter to strain the ginger-infused chicken stock, then rinse pan and put strained stock back into pan. Add a small amount of water if the stock has reduced very much.

2) While ginger simmers in stock, wash and slice mushrooms and thinly slice spinach leaves. Clean green onion and slice into very thin slices. Bring infused stock back to a low simmer, then add mushrooms and simmer 1 minute. Add sliced spinach and simmer one minute more. Turn off heat and add green onions, then serve soup hot, with chopsticks to eat the veggies after you drink the broth.

Compiled Recipe – Keto Macadamia Nut Coffee

Keto Macadamia Nut Coffee

Ingredients:
* hot coffee
* heavy whipping cream (if dairy-free, use water or unsweetened almond milk)
* 8 ounces hot coffee
* ¼ cup macadamia nuts (roasted and salted)
* 3 tbsp. heavy whipping cream (if dairy-free, use water or unsweetened almond milk)
* 1/8 tsp. stevia
* 1 tbsp. oil (optional but recommended)

Procedures:
1) Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender.

2) Blend on medium for 60 seconds, then on high for 30 seconds.

3) After blending, pour your coffee into a cup and try it. If it’s too thick, add it back to the blender with just enough water to thin it out to your liking. If it has little pieces of macadamia nuts in it, add it back to the blender and blend longer until the consistency is smooth.

Notes:
* What to do if you don’t have a high-powered blender: Use Vitamix to make this coffee, which does a great job of liquifying whatever you put in it. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you have two choices.
* Blend longer.
* Soak the macadamia nuts in water for 30-60 minutes before making the coffee. When you drain the soaking water, you’ll drain off the salt, so you may need to add a pinch of salt to match the flavor of un-soaked macadamia nut coffee.
