Celeriac Leek Soup

Celeriac is one of my favorite vegetables, especially since it is low in starch and FODMAPs (both of which I have been avoiding because of problems with SIBO). It tastes kind of like a cross between a potato and celery and cooks much faster than other root vegetables. I was craving a creamy potato-leek soup…

One of the most potent superfoods available to us also happens to be the most gross, in my opinion. It has amounts of notoriously hard-to absorb nutrients that those of us with autoimmune disease are usually lacking in – B vitamins, iron, zinc, and vitamins A and D. It took me a long time after…
