Health and flavor in one bowl

Eating nourishing foods and de-stressing your body, mind, and spirit is critical to building immunity.

This vegan immunity-boosting broth is healing, repairing and balancing for your body. The broth takes less than 5 minutes to make in a blender.  Each key ingredient contains anti-inflammatory immunity-boosting properties that help your body stay resilient—garlic, ginger, cayenne, turmeric, spirulina and lemon.

Spirulina is a blue-green algae high in phytonutrients and chlorophyll to help detoxify your body and balance your alkalinity. One tablespoon boosts 4 grams of protein, vitamins A, B and  C, iron, and beyond. We use it in smoothies, salad dressings and soups.

You can substitute the water in this broth and use bone broth for additional gut healing benefits. My favorite local bone broth is Nit Noi Provisions.

Like tea, we also use sipping broth as a mindfulness practice to slow down. PAUSE, sip, and take in the vibrancy of your food and the experience. Your soul and immunity will appreciate that.
