Packed with the goodness of garlic, ginger, lemon, and coconut milk, this Lemon Ginger Chicken Soup not only tastes delicious on a cold winter day but is loaded with super foods to help you power through cold and flu season.
Right now, as I type this, I do not have a cold. In fact, it has been at least a few weeks since I was last stumbling around in a virus-induced fog.
And I am doing everything I can to keep this healthy run going.
But, it is going to be a challenge. I am surrounded by fresh colds. My daughter has started sniffling again and yesterday my teenage son was coughing and stuffed up.
“Are you sick?” I asked, trying to calculate if we had even gone one week without someone sick.
“It is winter, Mom — I am always sick.”
Sigh. He is right. From playing football in the icy rain to hitting the rink for late night hockey games, my son doesn’t stop to look after a cold. He just keeps going, refusing to slow down or even just put on a coat when he leaves the rink for the damp night air.
I don’t know how kids can do it. They seem to be able to still roar through life whether they have a bad cold or not, albeit some of those days they are pretty cranky.
I, on the other hand, get pummeled to the ground by the viruses they share with me and it can take weeks to get back up to speed.
So I try to take precautions to stay healthy, giving my immune system the best chance I can to fight back.
When you are under the weather, a bowl of homemade chicken soup is as comforting as curling up in bed with a fluffy duvet, a heating pad, and a DVR full of your favorite TV shows.
But if you are in cold-fighting, immune-system-strengthening mode, we have a winter chicken soup recipe that beats your regular homemade chicken soup…
Check out our Lemon Ginger Chicken Soup which not only has the vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the chicken and vegetables to keep your body strong, it is also made with the immunity-boosting power of garlic, ginger, lemon, and coconut milk. Yes, this soup puts everything it can into helping you fight back when those winter viruses come calling.
