When we hear the thundering sound from the sky, the pleasant smell of the mud and the wind blowing the trees, we know that it’s going to rain. The next immediate thing that comes to our mind is to rush into the kitchen and make something which is super hot to go well with cool breezes and the rain. This is the when we opt for deep fried and unhealthy snacks which results in health issues and weight gain. So, instead of going for bhajis, pakoras and cutlets lets opt for hot and healthy soups which are very beneficiary to our health and body.
Our immunity system tends to take a dip during this season so we are more prone to infections. That is why our bodies need a constant flow of vitamins and minerals. Soups are great ways to load up on all the nutrition. It would be highly advised to go for clear soups over the thick cream-based ones. You can make clear soups with the ingredients of your preference but make sure that they are loaded with the vitamins and minerals which are good for our body and makes us strong.
Mushrooms are loaded with vitamin D and antioxidants which play a role in building your immunity. Leafy greens like cabbage, spinach, and broccoli are high in vitamins A, C and E. Try and include them in soups with a hint of aromatic spices which will help on immunity-boosting like turmeric, mustard, asafoetida, coriander, fenugreek, cloves, pepper, cinnamon, garlic, ginger and curry leaves which are anti-inflammatory spices. They not only add a fresh flavor to your soups but also boost your immunity and aid digestion. For non-vegetarians, chicken and mutton soups are good to derive strength as they are high in protein.
