 I have known Dr. Simone and learned about his Cancer – Nutrition philosophy since 1993 when I  was introduced to him by our school nurse. There have been a number of Cancer related deaths in our family so we have been trying to avoid these types of diseases by practicing the best preventive practices possible.   Although it is easy to give into the latest newspaper/magazine articles, or TV marketing ads that advance more user friendly methods (i.e. fast food), less costly, less time consuming, or yummier (i.e. fat flavored) food choices,

 “Made with Love” Chicken Soup

Made with Love Chicken Soup

“Made with Love” Chicken Soup

It was those words printed in the Florida’s OrlandoSentinel.com in an article by Anne-Marie Denicole and Pam Brendon that brought a rush of family memories. There she was, my caring mother, carrying a steaming bowl of chicken soup to a tiny sneezing, coughing little girl.  Homemade chicken soup has that kind of magic.  Just the thought of it makes you feel so much better. So it didn’t take me long before I was stirring up a large pot of loving goodness.

I decided to make it the way my mother did but those creative juices had me adding trendy red quinoa in place of noodles and a splash of white wine.  In any case, make it up your own style or try this recipe.  I know your soul will feel comforted.
