Yesterday I woke up and my eyeballs hurt. I was also walking around like a zombie. Despite having a good night’s sleep, I just couldn’t seem to wake up, so doing things like talking to clients and working on design mock-ups took incredible amounts of effort.
I’m fighting a cold bug and I don’t want it to win, so for lunch I whipped up this vegetable and whole grains soup. Loaded with dark leafy greens (kale to the rescue?), garlic and anything else I could find from the crisper and pantry, it was the perfect meal. And today I feel better. I don’t know if it was the soup, or the copious amounts of water I drank, or even the vitamins that I popped, but for the sake of a happy ending, let’s say it was the soup!
As today is Wednesday, you can find this cold-busting soup recipe over at Poppytalk. And if you have any leftovers, you can always eat this as soup. Or you could do what I did this past summer and turned soup leftovers into veggie burgers. Your call.
