This classic Winter warmer is filled with immune boosting nutrients and antioxidants! In this recipe, I used venison meat which contains more protein and iron then beef but you can use any meat or chicken or add some lentils/ beans for a vegetarian option. Prepare the ingredients in the morning, add them to the slow cooker and leave to cook on low for 7-8 hours then its all ready for you when you get home from work!

  • 3 stalks celery, diced

  • 1 onion, diced
