Immunity Boost Soup

When it comes to flu season, I’m always looking for ways to boost my families immune system. The easiest way for me, is through our diet.

Preparing healthy meals packed with immune boosting ingredients, is a sure way to fight off viruses we may come into contact with as were out and about.

Sometimes I’ll even challenge myself to see how many super, immune boosting ingredients I can get into one dish.

Today I’m sharing one of my family’s favorites:
