well, i dont know about didvine, but pretty darn good chicken soup is as easy as:
a whole chicken, (i like rosie, an organic, super yummy free range hen)
dropeed in a big pot with enough water to just cover. boiled for an hour, then take her out of the water and clean the meat off the carcass. put meat back in water.
a tablespoon sea salt
a yellow onion chopped in quarters.
a tablespoon or more of italian seasoning (i buy in bulk, too expensive from the package unless you already have some)
a cup of rice. simmer twenty more minutes then add:
a cup of amaranth (again from bulk)
simmer twenty more and
to thank this hen, because now it is time for a yummy cup of soup, that is going to be so much better for you than soup froma can. sometimes i just add a little more salt, or sometimes a squirt of Bragg's is enough, and sometimes a dash of lemon and braggs does me just right.
i am in windsor, i cant commit to a drive to novato anytime soon enough to be helpful, so i feel kinda bad, because you are almost close enough i could justify it.
i would reccomend that while you are at whole foods, you pick up some carlson's cod liver oil. lemon flavored. my naturopath says a tablespoon a day is great for respiratory health, and ok for pregnancy, as long as you stick to one tablespoon. (its screened for the toxins you often find in fish)
i hope you feel better soon. my dd has lots of trouble with respiratory stuff every winter. no fun. plus, you probably already know this, but cut out all dairy untill you are 100%, even goat dairy can cause your body to create some excess mucous.
