Super Breakfast Soup with Poached eggs, Nettles and Seaweed

I would have taken a picture for you, but ate it all up before I could.

This is a incredibly nourishing shot of minerals, energy and probiotic foods for a morning meal. Or anytime really. I like poached egg soup for breakfast a lot though.

2 cups bone broth or water
1 pinch sea salt
1 tsp tamari (wheat free)
2 tbsp miso ( I use south river miso chickpea miso)
2 eggs
1 tbsp nettle leaves (dried, fresh is better if you have them)
1 tbsp seaweed flakes (kelp, wakame or otherwise)
1 tbsp medicinal mushroom powder (from Mushroom Harvest)
a few heaping spoons of sauerkraut or lacto fermented ginger carrots
1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil

Mix broth,  salt and tamari in a sauce pan, and heat until just simmering.  Reduce heat to medium and crack two whole eggs into the hot water. Cover for 2-3 min to poach.  Add herbs to the pot, and cook until just tender.

Mix miso with 2 tbsp warm water in a bowl, top with kraut or carrots.  Pour hot soup and eggs over the mess in the bowl, top with a spoonful of ghee or coconut oil. 
Eat.

YUM!

Hey, and this even contains all the good foods Sean reccommends for keeping the thryoid healthy in the face of possible radioactive iodine from degrading nuclear plants.

D, hilarious, I had something almost identical yesterday for breakfast... though I want to get some of that medicinal mushroom mix you and Sean talk about quite a lot. And good point about the radioactive wave-- plus side to being on the East coast!
