This is my to-go soup for the winter months, when colds and sore throats become a sad reality. Rich in soothing properties, it usually manages to help me decongest a runny nose and support my system when I am run down.
I find it perfect after a yoga class too, to add on to the detoxifying power of yoga. Here is a quick reminder of the healing properties of the herbs and spices presents in the soup.
Chili. Decongestant, anti-imflammatory
Ginger. Detoxifying, anti-imflammatory
Extra-virgin olive oil. Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidants
Pumpkin seeds. Nutrients dense, vegetable proteins.
