As Brain Warriors, it is absolutely essential that we take care of ourselves with rest and relaxation in addition to pushing ourselves to be better. And what better way to relax on a chilly winter day than a steaming bowl of soup?
Soups are a favorite in the Amen household. Several scientific studies have shown that this delicious comfort food really can have medicinal benefits. Research shows that chicken soup is packed with healthy compounds that reduce inflammation, a problem believed to contribute to cold symptoms. One particular compound found in many soups — L-carnosine— may also help the immune system fight off the early stages of flu. This one is a perfectly satisfying meal for a snowy day—or any day for that matter!
