“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
This cold and flu season is knocking folks out!
Keeping yourself healthy by eating well, moving well, sleeping well and washing your hands like crazy helps to prevent you from getting sick, but sometimes even that isn't enough. This soup is one of my fav concoctions that has many properties that help boost immunity and can help clear up some symptoms if you do so happen to get sick.
Give this one a try. It's fragrant, filling and freaking delish!
Here's how the ingredients help:
-Coconut oil is antiviral and high in lauric acid and is thought to be able to dissolve the lips coating around some viruses.
-Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial which helps to get rid of sore throats and fights cold causing viruses and helps to boost immunity.
-Mushrooms have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties that help to boost immunity
-Lemongrass is another anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal
-Cumin helps to strengthen immunity and help with colds and cough
-Garlic is an antimicrobial, antifungal and antibacterial food that also acts as a decongestant and expectorant
-Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that strengthens the immune system
-Bone broth helps to break down mucus
-Coconut milk acts similar to the coconut oil
-Bok Choy is high in Vitamin A that works to boost the immune system and is also high in Vitamin C which is an antioxidant that shields the body from free radicals
-Kale is full of iron and is another great source of vitamins and antioxidants
-Red pepper flakes help to clear mucus
WHEW! Isn't that A LOT?!
Add noodles if you wish, I wanted to bulk the soup up more.
