Staying warm and eating tons of organic in-season, vitamin-rich vegetables is one of the best ways to boost your immunity and remain healthy during Winter. Therefore, soup is a meal you should be eating every day!
Soup warms you from the inside. If you have a colder constitution, adding more garlic and spice will benefit you even greater.
As long as you have all the ingredients and the time to chop up the vegetables, soup is pretty easy to make.
Here are 3 soups you may want to consider making today!
Minestrone Soup with Farro and Chia Pesto
This soup is so delicious and nutritious! I’m not vegan and appreciate the nutrition of animal fat & protein, but I feel less ethically challenged when I limit them. The chia pesto in this plant-based recipes adds a nice dose of omega-3 fatty acids and greater than 5 times the calcium in milk.
It does call for many ingredients and therefore a lot of preparation, but the actual cooking time is short. You can make it gluten-free by skipping the farro or replacing it with wild rice. Enjoy!
Broccol-Wee Soup from Weelicious
Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Kid-friendly
We’ve been eating this soup since by son was a toddler. Making a puréed soup like this is a great way to get some yummy greens into your child. I’ve also made a version of this soup with kale instead of broccoli. You can add a dollop of probiotic-rich yogurt or sour cream, adding more fat and protein to make it a more complete meal. Another plus: it takes less than 30 minutes to make!
Super Immune-Boosting Chicken Soup by Nourishing Meals
Finally, here is a soup to keep you healthy and well during cold & flu season. I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I love everything that comes out of Nourishing Meals, especially Alissa Segersten’s Elimination Diet Protocol.
