Nothing says comfort like a bowl of hearty soup. Here are some of our favorites, infused with ingredients that may give your immune system a leg up:
1. Chicken Bone Broth Soup: Filled with minerals, this soup is a staple for those looking to give their immune system a boost. Add in some garlic, ginger, and a hint of turmeric for an added touch of wellness.
2.Vegan Lentil Soup: Lentils are packed with protein and fiber. Combined with vegetables like carrots, celery, and onions, you're in for a nutrient-dense treat.
3. Butternut Squash and Ginger Soup: The creamy richness of butternut squash paired with the zest of ginger makes this not only a delicious choice but one that's good for you.
4. Miso Soup with Shiitake Mushrooms: A traditional Japanese soup, miso is a probiotic food, and shiitake mushrooms are known for their immune boosting properties.
As the old adage goes, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." This season, let's embrace this philosophy one cup of tea and one bowl of soup at a time.
