HOMEMADE CHICKEN SOUP

Using the largest pot you have, fill half of it with the chicken parts (legs and thighs make the most flavorful soup).
Peel about ten carrots and add to chicken.
Add about two large onions, a few stalks of celery, and some parsley.
Season with salt.
Fill pot with water.
Simmer for about 4 hours and then strain soup through a colander or strainer.
Skim off top layer of fat (don't worry if you can't get it all).
Purée carrots in blender and return to broth.

PLEASE REMOVE THE ONIONS, CELERY, AND PARSLEY.
Onions, celery, and parsley should not be used at the start of the dietary regimen because the fibrous parts of these vegetables may cause problems.
