Anyone else feeling like this cold and flu season has been particularly brutal?
Granted, my daughter is spending her first year daycare, too. Also known as the world’s biggest germ factory. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised it’s been cold central around here.
When my nose is raw and my throat lumpy, all I want is a magical cure for my dulled taste buds.
This soup is some seriously heartwarming shit.
Like it will satisfy your soul, people.
Ginger and lemon give it a bright, zingy flavour and turmeric, a spice that can be found on many a 2017 food trends lists, is your anti-inflammatory and antioxidant friend. It also gives it a pretty colour.
Of note, I tried to find credible, scientific evidence supporting turmeric’s ‘super food’ status with little success. There are only a small number of human studies that exist, with an even smaller number of double-blind placebo controlled studies (the gold standard in scientific research) to support the many many MANY claims being made about its power to cure everything from acne to cancer to Alzheimer’s.
Big picture, guys: Eat a variety of whole, unprocessed foods & focus on vibrant colours (ahem…turmeric) and you’ll get plenty of anti-imflammatory goodness. Dieititian hand to heart.
Now, back to this fan-bloody-tastic soup that takes 30 minutes start to finish.
30 minutes for soul satisfaction? Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
And it might even cure your cold.
