Chicken Soup for Asthma and Inflammation

It may not sound like a yummy and delicious soup but don't let the name fool you.
My husband has asthma. One of the major factors with asthma and many other health issues is Inflammation. Today I made a super soup with all of the amazing inflammation fighting, asthma kicking ingredients I could find!

House smells delicious. Another detox recipe!

4 pieces organic chicken (or more)
*The chicken is mainly to add protein and flavor. My husband is definitely a carnivore.*
1 whole garlic, chopped
1 jalapeƱo, chopped

Add to the slow cooker on high with 6-8 cups of filtered water for 3 hours.
Optional, add chicken or veggie broth

Add 1 bunch Cilantro, chopped
1 whole red onion, chopped
1 bunch Dandelions or kale, chopped
1 head of broccoli, chopped
*Or use broccoli slaw*
4-5 stalks of celery
**might need more water or broth*

Continue cooking for 1 more hour

Optional, add 2 cups cooked quinoa or brown rice at the last 30-45 minutes
**I forgot the celery in the above pic**

  1. What a fabulously healthy recipe! Not sure if this would help your hubby, but when I took my son off of wheat and gluten, his "asthma" disappeared. He's been off all of his meds for going on 9 years.
    Hope this soup helps him feel stronger every day. ;0)
