Today, fans are praising Al Roker’s “self-care” in a new photo following his recovery from a health crisis
FANS have raved about Al Roker’s self-care methods as he continues his recovery from his life-threatening health crisis.
The Today Show host has thanked his family and friends for helping him through the difficult time.
But fans have praised Al, 68, for taking good care of himself during his recovery.
The reality star took to his Instagram on Saturday to share a snap of his dinner.
The TV personality indulged in Navy bean soup with a side salad and a glass of champagne.
He captioned his post: “Tonight I was digging around in the freezer for #saturdaysupper and found leftover #navybean soup with #ham and added some chopped #calabrianchilli to spice it up.”
Fans were very pleased with the concoction and took to the comments section to rave about Al’s recovery methods.
“Have you ever thought about creating your own cookbook? Your dishes always look wonderful!” a compliment.
“So ‘consolation’…keep it up Al! a second wrote.
A third remarked: “Healthy eating and love you’re doing it right Al. Love following your simple, perfect adventures.”

“That looks fantastic. Thank you Al for being an amazing example of humanity. I’ve been watching you for probably 35 years (did I add time???) and you’re still a welcome presence today,” a fourth agreed.
“Nothing beats white bean soup on a cold winter’s night,” admitted a fifth.
“Looks delicious! I had a craving for some navy bean soup with smoked turkey. That just confirmed that I should do it. Thank you, Mr. Roker,” added a final one.
Al Roker began suffering from blood clots and internal bleeding in November 2022 and was quickly rushed to the hospital.
The clots in Al’s lungs and legs are believed to have been triggered by the tonight host’s previous battle with Covid-19, The US Sun previously reported.
After being hospitalized for a second time after Thanksgiving, Al underwent multiple surgeries, including a blood transfusion, a gallbladder removal, a colon resection, and repairing a tear in his duodenum.
According to Deborah, the future of her husband’s health in hospital looked bleak for some time, and at one point she said the family was “losing hope”.
Despite challenges, Al prevailed after four weeks of medical care and returned home.
The weatherman saw constant support from his wife and their children Courtney, 36, Leila, 24, and Nicholas, 20, throughout his fight and recovery.
However, his co-host Hoda Kotb also offered solid support after Al got home.
While the couple reflected on the harrowing ordeal during an episode of Maria Shriver’s digital YouTube series Conversations Above the Noise with Maria, Deborah said Hoda still showed up at the Roker residence around 8:30 p.m. several nights later.
“I called her the big Houdini,” Deborah remarked.
Al has notably returned to Today after his lengthy absence, and he explained to Shriver that the couple are more conscious about their lifestyle choices.
“We don’t say anything more about things,” said the 68-year-old.
“There will always be things that are important to us that we want to get done and get done … but, you know, maybe going out isn’t that important.”
Deborah said Al remained positive throughout the process, even as she said she felt insecure.
“We really thought we were going to lose him,” she explained.
“He says, ‘Positive attitude, positive attitude.'”
“And we kind of giggled because even in that moment when he was in great distress, he was trying to hold onto the positivity,” she continued.
Al said his family is a “gift” for taking control of his medical care during the stressful time.
