Kale is a member of the cabbage family, and is an excellent source of the full vitamin C complex, and cancer-fighting carotenoids. It's also a good source of iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin K, and potassium.

Chickpeas are one of the least expensive, nutrient-rich foods that you can eat. They're rich in a number of nutrients, most notably folate, manganese, tryptophan, copper, iron, and of course, healthy protein. Due to their high tryptophan content, chickpeas are an excellent food choice for people who have trouble getting restful sleep. Read more about Nourishing Kale and Chickpea Soup Recipe

Updated on January 27, 2019

To make soup that your family and friends will rave about, all you need are a handful of wholesome ingredients: two heads of cauliflower, a couple of Yukon gold potatoes, two shallots or a yellow onion, and a fresh bunch of any favorite herb.

As with most soups that include a healthy portion of cooked Yukon gold potatoes, I find that this soup is consistently helpful to those with an inflamed stomach or colon. Read more about Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup - A Digestive Tonic

If you strive to avoid gluten-rich wheat noodles but find yourself missing the occasional bowl of pasta, you may find the perfect fix in soba noodles. Made mostly with buckwheat and long used in East Asian cuisine, soba noodles are very easy to prepare and are readily available in Asian markets and grocery stores in larger cities.

Most varieties of noodles that are low in or devoid of gluten require constant attention while boiling and leave a gooey mess of cooking water to deal with after. Not with soba. Three to four minutes and they're ready to go, and unlike grainy whole wheat pasta, soba noodles have a delightfully clean and smooth feel about them. Read more about Soba
