Had a long day? Feeling like you might be coming down with something? Feeling a bit overwhelmed, overstretched and not grounded in yourself? This delicious soup was formulated by myself to help you unwind and to bring you back to your center. I believe food is medicine. This is the perfect remedy to nourish your mind body and soul, which are all one back into alignment. It does this for me, my family and my clients and I hope it will help you too.
Turmeric powder is used in this soup and I urge you to find a good organic brand (I prefer Simply Organic brand.) The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin has been shown in the scientific literature to have potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms. These benefits are made more bioavailable when curcumin is combined with agents such as piperine (in black pepper), which significantly increase its uptake.
Leeks, onions, and garlic in the soup serve as a prebiotic for your good-gut buddies in your microbiota to thrive on – when they do so do you! There’s also plenty of plant-based fiber that will keep them fed and proliferating to protect you! The 5 to thrive are all in this soup, which makes it a winner whether for lunch or dinner. We love to pair ours with my Honest To Goodness Crackers for some salty crunch! Enjoy the soothing effects of this nutrient-dense delicious soup on your soul.
