AIP / Spring Breakfast Chicken Soup – Slow Cooker Paleo Recipe - A Squirrel in the Kitchen (2)What can you eat for breakfast on the autoimmune protocol? I have had to completely change my eating habits when I started AIP, especially for breakfast. Coming from a standard american diet (SAD), I used to consume lots of bread, cereals, and sugary baked goods in the mornings. Such highly processed, high-carb foods would leave me trembling and starving by mid-morning. Fortunately all this has changed on the autoimmune protocol! One of my favorite breakfast food is soup, especially chicken soup. It is really easy to prepare and so nourishing!

I developed this recipe when one of my daughters suffered from a nasty cold this winter. She didn’t have much appetite for anything substantial, and she was craving something fresh at the same time. This breakfast chicken soup is easy to digest and a nutritional power-house! With chicken broth, for the nutrients and hydration, fresh herbs for their immune-boosting powers, and healthy fats from the avocado, this breakfast chicken soup is the perfect start to your day.

I like to get this soup started in the evening when I go to bed. I let it simmer through the night in the slow cookerAIP / Spring Breakfast Chicken Soup – Slow Cooker Paleo Recipe - A Squirrel in the Kitchen (3)(6-quart capacity) and I wake-up in the morning to the delicious and mouthwatering smells of chicken soup! Add the fresh herbs and avocado right before serving.
