Q: I am getting ready to go for hip surgery at the ripe age of 27 after being hit by a car while walking through a crosswalk. Anyone know of some good foods to eat after surgery to increase healing?
Any secret spices, supplements, or recipes? I would appreciate any help from the Kitchn Community!

Editor: I'm no nutritionist, but personally, I feel that the best foods for healing are those that make you feel happy and whole. For me, that would be things like nourishing soups with rich broths, oatmeal piled with nuts and fresh fruit, and big salads of dark greens and vegetables.
• Slow-Cooker Spiced Porridge
• One-Pot Pasta e Fagioli
• Ham Bone, Beans, and Greens Stew
• Kale Salad with Apricots, Avocado, and Parmesan
Readers, what foods do you find to be the most healing?
