    This is great! I have all this stuff in my kitchen already. Don’t need to shop for a thing… not even order from Amazon! I’ve been wanting to make a detoxifying chicken soup lately as well! As this one sounds delicious! I actually just made a Macha green tea w/ chicken bullion and of course I had to spice it up! As I really asked Google right now if the Matcha green tea would cut down the sodium from chicken bullion🤔… and Google sent me to here, to you.
    Thanks so much
