    Is bullion or broth allowed P2?

    On day 8, down 8lbs., and the thought of putting another piece of chicken in my mouth is making me nauseous.. Thinking if I could make a broth, maybe it make help... I truly am dreading eating.. I thought the trouble would be the foods I "want", but it's the foods I "don't want"... Blah

    Try making a soup by blending your meal up after cooking it in water. Making your chicken into a blended soup can sometimes be more easily tolerated when the food aversion hits.

    You may be able to find a broth that could work for P2. But water works just as well.

    Thanks :-) The reason I ask about bullion or store bought broth is that I can cook chicken breast in it with cabbage, until chicken moistly shreds.. Would be a great chicken soup...

    For a broth to be on protocol, you would have to find one made without sugar or fat, and that doesn't mix vegetables. Bouillon cubes are mostly a bunch of chemicals and salt.

    You'll be surprised at how much flavor you can get out of just boiling your chicken in water and adding some good-tasting mineral salt like pink salt or celtic sea salt.

    My wife made her own. There is a recipe somewhere on this forum we used as a starter. She made two types. Chicken and Beef and they were great!!!! I enjoyed many a bowl of soups.

    When I'm in P2, I develop an aversion to just about everything very quickly. I eat almost nothing but soup. I don't use broth because it is not technically on protocol, but I think a huge number of people do use some broth or bouillon, so you can give it a try if you can find one with no sugar or starch and minimal calories. I usually just make broth by cooking my chicken breast in water with some herbs.

    My typical meal is 3.5 oz of chicken breast in a pan with a few cups of water. Then I add a vegetable. Onions or cabbage sliced thin make good "noodles". Chopped chard in the soup is surprisingly tasty...I usually like red chard in my soup. Spinach is okay, but not my favorite. Celery works well, but makes a blander soup. If I'm using tomatoes or fennel, I usually prefer fish instead of chicken in the soup.

    Then I start adding fresh herbs or things from my spice cupboard. I add parsley to almost everything. I always add ginger to my chicken "noodle" soup. Some chopped garlic, herbs de Provence, thyme, basil, oregano, poultry seasoning, marjoram, salt, pepper, etc in whatever combination sounds good that day get added. I usually cook the soup for 30-45 minutes, covered, then shred or finely dice the chicken. A squeeze of fresh lemon improves the flavor of almost any soup I make.

    I also like to make asparagus soup. I just cook asparagus, water, thyme, salt and pepper until the asparagus is soft. Then I puree it until smooth and add a generous squeeze of lemon. Tomatoes and basil pureed in the blender make a nice tomato soup. Sometimes I add 1T milk to these soups for a creamier flavor. That small amount of milk does make a difference, surprisingly. If you eat shrimp or crab, it goes nicely in both the asparagus and the tomato soup.

    Here's a really good chicken chili recipe from my favorite P2 recipe website; it uses chicken broth, but I just make it with water instead and it is delicious: http://phasestoforever.blogspot.com/...ken-chili.html

    Hi VickyinNY. I am new, 1st day!! How did you get your signature line with all of your VLCD Days? I cannot figure out how to change my signature line.

    I've found a few store bought broths that don't have any sugar/starch. Pacific makes an organic chicken bone broth that is good and Whole Foods brand 365 makes a beef broth with no sugar.

    Jmmrr, I love soup too. It makes the meal take longer to eat, and is so filling, plus I get in extra fluids. I use Kirklands chicken broth from Costco. I should start making my own.I also love so many recipes from the blog you linked! I like her recipes for P2 Chili, Asian Slaw and the idea to bake and shred a big pan of chicken at once.
