Ginger, Turmeric & Egg Soup - A great way to serve bone broth

If you are already making your own bone broth, this is a great way to serve it up to keep things interesting as you are probably drinking it everyday and if you are new to bone broth, you can check out my three ways to make bone broth here - 2 day chicken bone broth, pressure cooker bone broth or slow cooker bone broth. I always make my bone broths plain, with no salt and no vegetables so that I can freely flavour it when I am ready to serve it up or use it in any type of cooking. This ginger and turmeric soup makes a cheap, quick and filling lunch combining the anti-inflammatory properties of fresh turmeric and the gut healing properties of bone broth.

There are only five main ingredients to make this ginger and turmeric soup - bone broth, egg, ginger, turmeric and spring onions. You can easily prep this at home and take to work in a thermos. It tastes delicious. The ginger is so warming and the benefits of bone broth and turmeric make this a super power food. 

Bone broth promotes healing of the gut and aids digestion, reducing joint pain and inflammation, contains high amounts of calcium and magnesium for healthy bones, inhibits infection,  fights inflammation and promotes healthy hair and nails. It's good for you on the inside and out. Combined with the benefits of turmeric which has anti-inflammatory properties, helps improve skin conditions like eczema, aids digestion, protects the heart, is anti-cancer, improves liver function and so much more. A real bowl of goodness :)
