Kick My Cold’s Ass Veggie Soup

Kick My Cold's Ass Veggie Soup – Immune System Boost Recipe | Healthy Eats by Jennie

It’s cold season, so we all need an Immune System Boost Recipe to either kick that cold’s ass or prevent a cold from kicking your ass! During the holiday season, we were not eating as much healthy eats as we normally would with all the holiday parties and holiday fun! So of course, both Jimmy and I caught colds! Starting this year off, and since cold season and winter will still be in effect for a few months, I wanted to create an Immune System Boost Recipe to Boost our immune systems and keep those colds away! I pretty much googled foods to either kick a cold or prevent a cold and put as many of them in a soup that I could. Big ones that kept on coming up in my search were red peppers, celery, carrots, garlic, ginger, broth, chick peas, dark leafy greens and citrus. This Immune System Boost Recipe has all these foods and turned out both delicious and comforting! read more

Instant Pot Celery Zucchini Soup

Instant Pot Celery Zucchini Soup

I have been reading that celery is an amazing food with tons of health benefits such as lowering cholesterol, reducing blood pressure, detoxing, improves heart health, supports weight loss and so much more!  With all these benefits, I want to make a Celery Recipe. I really love my Instant Pot Cauliflower Zucchini Soup, so I based this Celery Recipe with the foundations of that one in mind.  This Celery Recipe turned out awesome – it is so delicious, and the bonus is that it is super healthy! It is creamy (without having to use any dairy), and very comforting, and flavorful! Be healthy and enjoy!
