This healing ginger mushroom kale noodle soup is my go-to when I’m starting to feel under the weather. The broth is loaded with turmeric and other spices, plus a healthy dose of fresh ginger and plenty of garlic!
Hey there, I’m back after taking an unintended week and a half off from posting recipes. A big goal of mine for 2017 is to be more present in my day-to-day life, and that means less time on the internet! I’ve been consciously spending time doing other things, like going to the gym 4-5 times a week and hanging out with my man. It’s going to take some time for me to figure out how to balance everything online AND offline.
I swear “balance” has been the “it” word for the past five years. We’re blasted with non-stop stimuli that our brains can’t process, and we feel like we have to keep up with everything, but I say fuck it. If you miss out on your friend’s Facebook or Instagram post because you were out living your life, then you win! I’ve spent more quality time with my kids and husband in the past three weeks than I’ve been able to in a while, and that wasn’t something handed to me. I had to consciously decide to shut off things that are distractions and focus on what’s in front of me.
Healing Ginger Mushroom Noodle Soup
Another reason that I’ve been away is that both of my kids were sick all last week. Kindergarten is a giant virus pond where all the kids get to pass around the same nasty bug, and we didn’t escape this one. Apollo had a fever, runny nose and cough, and couldn’t go to daycare the whole week. I fought it off for as long as I could, but when my morning kisses turned into both kids coughing directly into my face, I knew I was next. Right now, I’m mostly dealing with a nasty cold, but I’m slowing losing my voice from coughing so much.
I’ve been loading up on herbs, vitamins, and drinking a lot of tea, but I desperately wanted a healing bowl of soup. This ginger soup is made with a ton of garlic, onion, turmeric and other immune boosting foods. I added baby bok choy and green kale for extra vitamin C and a ton of mushrooms.
I love adding ramen noodles to my soups, and you can always add more vegetables (broccoli would be nice). I like making big batches of this soup when I’m sick, and then I can just re-heat it when my throat feels sore!
If you’re in the same boat as me, then I hope you’re feeling better soon and can enjoy a big bowl of soup!
