Lemons 'n Lyme

When life gives you lemons, use them to beat Lyme

Healing, Creamy Sweet Potato and Rutabaga Soup with Bok Choy



In case you guys haven’t noticed, I’ve been really obsessed with soup lately. It’s the only way I can get bone broth in (I can’t stand it on it’s own!) and my tummy is really needing that healing bone broth. So, massive amounts of soup it is!



6-8 cups of bone broth

1 sweet potato

1 rutabaga

4-6 baby bok choy (if they are very small get 6)

Salt to taste

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Peel and cut your sweet potato and rutabaga into cubes. Boil the sweet potato and rutabaga in 4-6 cups of broth until fork tender (you want enough broth to cover the vegetables while they cook). 

Pour everything into a Vitamix or high speed blender, add the salt and cinnamon and blend until smooth. Place back into a large pot and add the remaining 2 cups of broth along with the chopped bok choy. Bring to a low boil and cook until bok choy is soft.

Eat that delicious soup!

Serves 4-6

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)

  1. Sweet potatoes are my favorite!!!


  2. This looks amazing as usual! I can’t eat soup in the summer, but I am saving this for fall. I love sweet potatoes also! I have never used a rutabaga before—I am not totally sure what it looks like, LOL. I’m sure my food coop has them though. Will let you know!
