4. Too Good Turkey Vegetable Soup

You will definitely want to save this recipe for after Thanksgiving when you have SO much turkey to deal with. Bone broth is one of the most nutritious ways to help heal joints and make stronger bones, as well as improve your metabolism.

You can use almost any vegetables you have on hand. When refrigerated, this looks like a gel on top but don’t panic, when you heat it up again, the gel dissolved back into soup. Make room in the freezer because this makes a LOT!
