Making meals for yourself serves more uses than just getting in shape. In the art of food prep saving money is also a great benefit of this practice.
Have you ever bought a rotisserie chicken and scraped the bones and then through out the bones? Did you know there are still more meals in that chicken? Here’s what I did the other day to get a few more meals and even more delicious and nutritious ingredients.
Try this recipe. It serves about 5 bowls of soup and it perfect to feed the family or your meals for the week.
- 2 cups of water
- 1 Chicken bone and left overs.
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons of turmeric
- 1/4 dry peas
- 1/4 of red lentils
- 1 tablespoon of sea salt
- 1 teaspoon of pepper
Just simmer on low heat for 20-30 minutes. Take out the bones and blend if you would like a creamer version. You can store it in the fridge or even freeze the soup for later meals. I would say it should last about a week in the fridge. Feel free to add yams, or potatoes. Get creative with your chicken bones and broth.
Special shout out to turmeric:
Research has been focusing on turmeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in its main active ingredient. But now they are saying it can also help enhance nerve growth in the frontal cortex and hippocampal ares of the brain.
