Dare I say — spring is finally almost here?! The painfully bitter cold bite in the air seems to be a bit less harsh, and the clocks have sprung ahead, leaving in our sight the
daylight at the end of the tunnel!
It’s ironic, but as much as we [rightfully] love this time of year when the seasons begin to change and the days last longer, it is actually a very likely time for people to get sick with a cold. A drastic change in climate and temperature can throw off our bodies and immune systems, often resulting in a case of the sniffles, a soar throat, a headache, or the presence of allergies. I suppose it’s the price we pay to make way for better weather. At least we have something to look forward to!
This reaction to the rapid change in weather was the case in my very own household over the weekend. In the spirit of curing the common headcold (sniffles, soar throat, stomach ache, headache, tired eyes, feeling sluggish), I decided to make some of my homemade FSS Spring Fever Soup! This recipe is SO simple, extremely affordable, and tastes absolutely delicious! Most of the ingredients may already be in your kitchen, and it will boost your immune system instantly! You’ll be feeling better within hours.
Try my FSS Spring Fever Soup recipe today to cure your winter weather ailments, or even just to knock that winter chill out of your body. It’s time to make way for spring, and I don’t know about you, but I am BEYOND ready! Bring on the beautiful spring breeze and the long sunny days, and do it in great health!
FSS Spring Fever Soup
3 cups water
3 cups organic low sodium chicken broth
2 carrots, cubed
2 celery stalks, cubed
1 cup mushrooms, sliced and halved
1 cup corn
2 cups firm tofu, cubed and grilled until firm
1 cup chicken, raw and cut into cubes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 bay leaves
Add all ingredients to a medium size sauce pot.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, and let soup sit on low for at least one hour for flavors to merge and elevate throughout the broth.
Before serving, remove both bay leaves.
Serve warm, enjoy, and save leftovers for later!
Be well, be healthy, and be ready for spring’s arrival with this savory, lean, satisfying recipe!
Much love 🙂
