When it’s cold outside and you need a warm soup to take the blues away and keep the flu at bay, we’ve got just the soup for you.
Research shows that astragalus root (a Chinese herb used to ward off flu), has powerful immune-enhancing properties. The sliced, dried root is available in specialty health food stores, Chinese grocery, and herb stores. It adds a pleasant, sweet taste when simmered in soups. Shiitake mushrooms, onions, and turmeric spice also naturally boost immunity. Garlic and onions have natural and powerful anti-viral and antibiotic effects; ginger and turmeric, are natural anti-inflammatory agents.
Replace traditional pasta noodles which are immune suppressing with black bean or shirataki noodles which are carb free!
