GAPS DIET TOMATO SOUP RECIPE FROM HEAL YOUR GUT COOKBOOK

If you suffer from Leaky Gut soups are an easy to digest and nourishing way to start to heal the gut wall.

One of our favorite recipes from the Heal Your Gut cookbook, this recipe for tomato soup is quick and delicious!

This is a nice twist on classic tomato soup.

During the early stages of the GAPS Diet (Stages 1 through 3), soups are made by cooing vegetables in stock.

When you move to Stage 4 and beyond, you can move to sautéing vegetables and meat in healthy fat and then adding stock to make the soup.

The sausage in this GAPS diet* tomato soup recipe really lends a great depth of flavor, and changing the type of sausage you use allows for lots of delicious variations.

Depending on what Stage you are in will depend on how you cook this soup, and you will not add fresh herbs until you are in Stage 2 or later.

This soup tastes even better with time, so make it ahead if possible!

It’s hearty and filling and simple to make.  

If you’re looking for delicious nutrient dense recipes for your intestinal health using the GAPS diet, the Heal Your Gut book is a MUST.

*The GAPS diet is a comprehensive healing protocol developed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, a neurologist and nutritionist who specializes in healing of issues like autism spectrum disorders, ADD/ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia and schizophrenia by treating the root cause of many of these disorders: compromised gut health.

A high speed blender, such as a Blendtec or Vitamix makes blending this easy, however a regular blender can be used as well. Be sure to join our community for more healthy soup recipes and updates from Blender Babes. If you try this, please let everyone know by rating it in the comments! 🙂

HEALTH BENEFITS OF TOMATOES
Whether you refer to a tomato as a fruit or a vegetable, whether you call it a “toh-MAY-toh” or a “toh-MAH-toh,” there is no doubt that a tomato is a nutrient-dense, super-food that most people should be eating more of.

Tomatoes are a rich source of vitamins A and C and folic acid and contain a wide array of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants, including alpha-lipoic acid, lycopene, choline, folic acid, beta-carotene and lutein.

The following are some health benefits:

Heart health: The fiber, potassium, vitamin C and choline content in tomatoes all support heart health.

An increase in potassium intake along with a decrease in sodium intake is the most important dietary change that a person can make to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease.

Skin: Collagen, the skins support system, is reliant on vitamin C as an essential nutrient that works in our bodies as an antioxidant to help prevent damage caused by the sun, pollution and smoke, smooth wrinkles and improve overall skin texture.

Constipation: Eating foods that are high in water content and fiber like tomatoes can help to keep you hydrated and your bowel movements regular.

Fiber is essential for minimizing constipation and adding bulk to the stool.
