Try this super powerful immune booster soup to help alleviate your cold symptoms!

As I was coming down with a cold last night, I had to take care of my body so that I can carry on with my work and duties the next day. So, what did I do?

First, I used my essential oils diffuser. My oils of choice were orange, lemon, clove, Frankincense. Which I chose because of all its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. However, the magic is in the soup!

The best thing you do when you have a cold is to have a chicken soup full of nutrients, where ginger and garlic are essential ingredients.  

Try my power protein healing soup!

  • 1.5 lb. chicken tenders (you can use more).
  • Chopped carrots, onions, lots of garlic (I used 4 oz)
  • 1 whole ginger root.
  • 1 Dunja zucchini.
  • 2/3 of a cup of chopped parsley.
  • 2 whole lemons.
  • 1/3 of a cup of olive oil for the whole pot.
  • 1 tbsp Ghee for the chicken.
  •  8-10 cups bone broth. I highly recommend using bone broth when making your soup as it is high in proteins (essential amino acids type).

I cooked the chicken in cast iron, added white pepper, 7 spices, Chile lime, lemon pepper, cinnamon sticks, cardamom, and bay leaves. I regularly use the last 3 ingredients when cooking any chicken or meat.

Then I sautéed freshly chopped garlic and ginger with olive oil, then added carrots, zucchini, and onions. Please feel free to use the amount you want; I am very generous in the amount of garlic and ginger that I use.

The spices I used are turmeric, cayenne, black pepper, and salt. I even added Zaatar (a culinary herb from the middle east).

Et Voilà! you have an amazing tasty, super spicy soup full of anti-inflammatory agents!

The whole pot has around 1800 calories/200 grams of protein, and yes it has this much protein because of the chicken and bone broth. This pot provides 8-10 servings, hence on average a serving has 225 calories and 25 grams of protein.
