Stracciatella Soup with Skin-Boosting Bone Broth

It’s midmorning and you’re bundled up in a big cozy sweater because the temperatures outside are super chilly. All you want is something to warm up your insides.

And my favourite something to do that? Bone Broth.

I bring a few cups of my homemade broth to a boil (it smells amazing, ps) and add some spices and herbs. It gets poured into a big white soup bowl that I carefully walk over to the table because it’s filled to the brim.

The aroma of the broth fills the room and I sip on the first piping hot spoonful.

This is a ritual I do almost every day. I switch up the things I mix into the broth, but my go-to recipe is this dairy-free stracciatella soup. I love that it’s not only full of nutrients that work to heal your gut lining but also improve the health of your skin.

Because one of the most important things we can add to our diet to support our skin is collagen. Bone broth happens to be one of the best supplies of collagen.

So let’s talk a few quick benefits to the skin…

  • Improves skin’s barrier function
  • Strengthens skin tissues
  • Promotes better elasticity.
  • Smooths the skin and reduces wrinkles, fine lines and sagging
  • Boosts hydration

Collagen is a big component I make sure my clients include in The Clear Skin Solution. In this program, we dive deep into my 3-step system for getting rid of acne. We work to detoxify the body, heal the gut, and balance the hormones for real, lifelong results of clear skin.

And you know how I just mentioned the importance of detoxifying for clear skin? Bone broth helps with that, too.

By boosting your supply of glutathione, bone broth helps the liver flush excess toxins and hormones from the body. Better working liver = less breakouts.

Making It Dairy-Free

Traditionally, stracciatella soup contains cheese. Unfortunately, dairy is an acne-triggers I discuss in one of the first few lessons of The Clear Skin Solution.

I worked around this in my version of stracciatella soup by using nutritional yeast in place of the usual parmesan. If you’ve never used nutritional yeast before, it’ adds a cheesy flavour to any dish. The perfect substitute in this recipe.

Paragraph

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job and we're here to help you do it.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
