For centuries, ginger has been used as a natural remedy to aid digestion, nausea and even used to reduce pain.  With these medicinal agents as well as anti-inflammatory properties, many people with Crohn’s have found ginger to be extremely beneficial. That’s why this recipe by Bon Appétit is definitely a keeper. Not only is it super simple to make, but it is very easy on the stomach with minimal ingredients. The ginger soothes indigestion and adds a wonderful depth of flavor. Additionally, by using an entire chicken, this soup extracts the minerals from the bones making a very delicious bone broth with no fuss. (Just make sure to leave the remainder of the chicken in the pot to simmer when you remove the chicken breasts.)
