The Most Immune Boosting Soup Ever

The Most Amazing Immune Boosting Soup Ever

This time of year a bowl of soup is just what you need for so many reasons. First, it’s chilly and a warm bowl of soup just hits the spot. Second, your are in the winter season and as I have often pointed out this is the season when one slows down and turns inward. We are mammals. No mammal on Earth goes 100% all the time. Nope, not one…except us humans who think we can just keep on going.  However if you look around us, humans aren’t doing so well, so maybe this schedule has got to go. Winter is a time to sleep, heal, meditate, identify triggers and stressors and turn inward. Check in with you, listen to what the body, mind and soul are telling you.  When you are in a resting and healing time, you want to incorporate lots of soups and stews because these help to give your digestion system a break as well.  The stove assists your digestive system by doing some of the ‘digestion’ for you. Following is a recipe of mine that is like bunny slippers in a bowl. This is the most comforting and soothing soup and the fact that it has some major immune boosting power foods is just a side affect. (Side affects don’t have to be negative)

Root veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals and more to help give your immune system a boost. Since they are so nutrient dense you can think of these foods as fuel for your immune system. We want to give our immune systems as much fuel as we can to keep them running in tip top shape. This soup is one of our family favorites, I usually triple it when I make it! We have a  lot of mouths to feed here. Enjoy!
