Brrrrrr is it cold out there! With early winter comes carrot harvest. Did you know that carrots are sweeter after the first frost? True story y’all! Every year, I plant a brilliantly colored crop of carrots from none other but Bakers Creek Heirloom Seeds. I have been ordering from them for what feels like forever and I have yet to have a crop fail me.
On these extremely cold days I can’t help but desire a warm cup of soup for dinner next to a blaring wood fire. Here’s an extremely simple soup that just about anyone can make- no skill required 😉 .
Not only is this soup tasty, but it’s full of ingredients that keep your immune system kicking all winter long.
Bone Broth is rich in minerals that support our immune system and contains healing compounds such as collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline. These minerals are easily absorbed into our body and can inhibit infections caused by colds and the flu viruses. I save my bones throughout the year and then make up a giant stock pot full and can it up for a quick soup, such as this one.
Ginger is a powerful root vegetable. It has many benefits including being full of antiviral compounds that help not only soothe the symptoms of the flu and common cold but also prevent them from happening!
Coconut Oil has been gaining in popularity and for good reasons. It is made up made up of healthy fats which contain anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral compounds to boost the immune system.
