This soup was inspired by my daughter’s encounter with strep throat. It was our first time dealing with strep in our household. As usual, I immediately sought out supporting remedies that Nature had to offer me. Almost every vegetable listed in this recipe contains healing properties for not only the strep bacteria, but many other common viruses and illnesses. The bonus? … it’s delicious, soothing to any irritated throat and perfect for a cold Winter’s day. A Family Favorite for sure, and a kind gesture to make for friends and neighbors who may be struggling with sickness!
A Simple, Satisfying, and Soothing Soup for the Body & Soul
***Sun exposed mushrooms contain the Vitamin D2 to keep your levels raised when sun exposure is not available to you! Consistent Vitamin D2 intake from mushrooms has been thoroughly researched, and the benefits are promising for stabilizing the body’s Vitamin D levels throughout the Winter (or in the case of lack of sun exposure).
To enhance store-bought mushrooms’ Vitamin D content, simply set them in a sunny spot for 2 days. You will even notice them get a little “tan” ! Rrefrigerate after tanning them. Vitamin D2 tolerates heat and will not be destroyed when cooked.
The increase of strep-throat incidences directly correlates with our sun exposure, which contributes to why strep tends to spread faster in the cold season, when the sun tends to hide it’s medicinal rays! Regular consumption of mushrooms are an excellent way to keep those levels up!
