There’s never been a better time to take care of your body with the right foods. During these challenging times, it’s important to make sure you’re giving your body the nutrients it needs to stay as healthy as possible!
There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of hearty soup, to keep you satisfied. Packed with veggies, it’s easy to have your five-a-day in one meal. Here are some of our favourite immune-boosting soups to keep you healthy.
Chicken and Vegetable
Easy, diverse, and delicious, chicken and veggie soup is a no-brainer. Especially if you have some cooked chicken left over. You can use literally any vegetables you have in the fridge. Carrots, corn, peas, tomatoes, cabbage, celery, potato – you name it, anything goes. You can also add some beans to the mix for an extra boost of fibre and protein. All you need is some stock to cook it in!
Yep, it’s a classic – for good reason! Pumpkin soup not only tastes great, but these veggies are packed with loads of health benefits. Full of antioxidants and vitamin A, pumpkin soup won’t just boost your immune system, it’s also great for your eye health and skin. For an extra lift, add some carrot. What’s not to love?
If you’re not already a fan of these fun-guys, you probably should be. Mushrooms are a powerhouse of properties that help enhance the immune system, fight disease, lower cholesterol, and are anti-inflammatory. There are many great options out there for mushroom soups that will appeal to different tastes, so give it a try. With all those benefits, how could you not?
Last but not least, don’t pho-get (sorry) about this one. Whether you opt for a traditional bone broth, or a veggie option, home-made pho is packed full of the good stuff. And, you can change it up to suit your preferences! Leafy greens, ginger, mushrooms, and fresh herbs are a winning combination for your health. To really boost your immune system, add some nori (dried seaweed) for an extra charge of vitamin A, B, C, D, E and K.
