Last nights Immune Boosting Chicken Soup was on point 🍲👌🏻
This was like a hug in a bowl after battling a head cold this week 🤧Packed full of natural antimicrobials to kill off any bugs like garlic, ginger and chilli. And anti inflammatory foods like turmeric and green veggies 🌶👊🏻
Did you know that chicken soup is actually proven to help reduce the severity of colds?! So get onto this if you've got the sniffles! Plus it tastes amazing!
I used the recipe from @iquitsugar and just added some chilli, 2 tsp of tamari and next time might add some shiitake mushrooms.
Chicken soup and Shabbat...a perfect match!⠀
Back in 2000 Dr. Stephen Rennard of the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha conducted laboratory tests to determine why chicken soup might help colds, beginning with his wife’s homemade recipe, handed down by her Lithuanian grandmother.⠀ ⠀
Using blood samples from volunteers, he showed that the soup inhibited the movement of neutrophils, the most common type of white blood cell that defends against infection. Dr. Rennard theorizes that by inhibiting the migration of these infection-fighting cells in the body, chicken soup essentially helps reduce upper respiratory cold symptoms.⠀ ⠀
Shabbat Shalom and enjoy your soup!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
A big pot of my homemade chicken soup for the soul! 🐔 Great if you're feeling under the weather, this pot will combat anything, very hearty! 💛#chickensoupforthesoul#soup#chickensoup#homemade 🔪Started with a Cornish game hen for stock, garlic onions ginger spices..., later add veggies carrot, red peppers broccoli pasta rotini and the deboned chicken meat (Simmered for hours on low) 😋
Have a great day all, keep healthy
