Cold and flu season has already begun now is the best
time to work on getting the best nutrients into your body to fight off any
viruses. I also recommend a product called Airborne. Look for it in any
pharmacy.

Cure-A-Cold
Chicken Soup Recipe (serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces of skinless,
    boneless chicken breast
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 2 T extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 chopped pieces of celery
  • 3 thinly chopped carrots
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Couple handfuls of noodles
  • 4 thinly sliced scallions
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
    and dill
  • 1/3 cup green, red or
    yellow peppers; spinach; or parsnips and grated ginger; optional
  • 1 lemon

Directions:

 

1.  Combine the chicken, one of the onions, bay leaf and garlic in a
large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil then simmer it for about
twenty minutes. While the chicken is cooking, put the olive oil in a heated
soup pot, then throw in the second onion, the celery, carrots, pepper, spinach
and parsnips, then season with salt and pepper. Cover the pot and cook about
seven minutes.

2.  Add the broth to the soup pan, 2 cups of water (only one and half
for stronger chicken flavor), and boil. Place the cooked chicken on a cutting
board and shred it, adding it to the soup pot. Lastly, add the noodles and cook
for about five minutes. Take the pot off the heat and stir in the scallions,
herbs, and the grated peel of the lemon. Add more salt and pepper to taste if
desired
