Tom Kha Gai(AIP)

November 1, 2019

 

I can remember the very first time I had Tom Kha Gai Soup. Rollerblading down Hollywood beach in South Florida in my late 20's, while on a date with a very nice young lady. I was beginning to allow my taste buds to grow up and try new foods. Besides, who wants to look like they're "uncultured" while on a date? I decided to see what this Tom Kha Gai soup was all about.

This experience was towards the beginning of my wellness journey. Here I am a decade later, still grateful to that young lady for exposing me to new foods. I wish her well wherever she is. Today as I continue working on optimizing my health, I am constantly creating art in the kitchen with better quality ingredients that feed my mind, body and soul.

With that said, here is an optimized Tom Kha Gai soup that follows the AIP protocol. With a nice bone broth base which is full of healthy ingredients like glycine. This recipe is simple and full of flavor. Give it a sip tonight. Here's to your wellness!
