From scratch soup base:

Once you have a few homemade soup bases under your belt, homemade soups, stews, and chowders just became that much tastier…and better for you!

*Healthy Homemade Chicken Stock (stovetop method)

*Beef Bone Broth (slow cooker method)

The health benefits of Beef Bone Broth are enormous, and making it at home in the slow cooker couldn’t be easier.

Spaghetti Squash Soup is a wonderfully hearty, comforting, and healthy way to eat your veggies. This soup can be made with or without sausage so it’s perfect for anyone, or any table.

Let’s see if you can tell the difference. LOL
