Beat The Flu- Immune system is your first defense!

     Seems like everyone has been sick this winter. Here is my recipe for keeping your immune system healthy. Eat right, take care of your immune system, exercise and see your Chiropractor regularly is my best advice.

FLU-SHOT SOUP

LENTILS- 1 cup
SHALLOTS- 1 bulb
GARLIC- 4 cloves
GREEN PEPPER- 1 medium
CARROT- 2-3 medium
SWEET POTATO- 1 large
KALE- 1 bunch
SHITAKI MUSHROOMS- 6-8
BONE BROTH- 6 cups
TURMERIC- 2 tsp
PARSLEY- ¼ cup fresh, chopped
SORREL- 1/8 cup fresh, chopped
THYME- 1 tsp
BASIL- 2 tsp

Sauté vegetables in coconut oil, add bone broth, add spices, add pre-soaked lentils, cover and simmer till the lentils are done….easy!
