Healing Soups for Better Focus and Self-Control (autism, ADD, ADHD)

Studies suggest that dietary changes may improve symptoms of hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity in children with ADHD. Use these recipes to cook up meals that deliver the protein, complex carbohydrates, and whole grains that your child needs.

Meat and Vegetable Soups

Bone broths, meat stocks, meat soups—this can all get very confusing! In my experience most everyone does well with a good soup cooked only about 3 hours. This is based on the research by Dr. Russell Blaylock who found that those with autism, ADD, ADHS, MS and other neurological disorders as well as Crohn’s or Leaky Gut Syndrome did not do well with the excessive amount of glutamates generated by long-cooked (8 hours or more) bone broths. I have found this to be true clinically as well. Here is an easy way to start making great soups in a non-metal, non-toxic clay crockpot that I have found to be very successful flavor-wise as well as health-wise.

First – buy a VitaClay crock pot. If you can’t find a good deal online then go to vitaclaychef.com.

Second – Go buy organic vegetables and grass-fed meat on a bone or pastured chicken on a bone. Throw all together in the crock pot and punch “Slow-cooking” and “Stew.” It will cook for 2 hours and then let it simmer for 1-2 more hours.

Ingredients

  • ½ a Chicken or 4 drumsticks, or beef bones (or other meat)
  • (1 chicken foot, or other meat, for extra gelatin-optional)
  • 2 to 3 carrots coarsely chopped*
  • 2 to 3 zucchini, parsnips, or celery coarsely chopped*
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Fill with filtered water

Directions

  1. Throw all together in the vitaclay pot
  2. Set on “Slow-cooking” and “Stew" to cook for 2 hours
  3. Let it stay in Warm (simmer) for 1-2 more hours.

Eat while warm and then let it cool and fill individual glass Tupperware-like containers with meal-size amounts and freeze for future use.

Note

  1. you may use other vegetables such as squash, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, cabbage, potatoes, etc.
  2. Those on the intro GAPS diet or with an extremely sensitive stomach should avoid some of the more fibrous vegetables at first.
