If you’re feeling under the weather or in need of a comforting boost, make this delicious broth with nutrient rich foods and warm flavors.
By Stephanie Kazolides
Noodle soups are a must in cold weather… they feel like they’re nourishing the soul with healing ingredients like garlic and ginger! I’d recommend making this if your feeling slightly worn-down or stressed, or over-coming sickness. I really do believe and advocate that food is medicinal… good sources of plants and grain, nuts and seeds contain an abundant of minerals and nutrients that our bodies are crying out for on the daily!
Aside from nourishing your body and mind, these nutrient rich foods also taste amazing – it’s a misconception that healthy is boring.
If you give this noodle soup a go you will see exactly what I mean! It’s also really easy to make, warming and fulfilling.. can’t lose.
