Today we had our first workshop in our new office space on a very hot topic – H1N1 and how to take care of yourself throughout cold and flu season. We discussed several recipes that you can make at home to boost your immune system as part of your self care plan to avoid getting sick…
Immune boosting soup
Directions: Place the beef and bones into a pot. Cover with water and slowly bring to a boil, skimming the surface occasionally. When the water comes to a boil, turn down to simmer, add the mushrooms, carrots, burdock, and onion. Add sprigs of fresh thyme and parsley, as well as salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low heat around 3-4 hours until the meat falls off the bones.
Immune enhancing juice
Directions: Juice the apple, Swiss chard, carrots and pepper. Add citrus juice and enjoy!
