Fighting off the Winter Cold… with Soup!

Hello foodies! I should start this post by introducing myself as the new addition to the marketing department of Mushrooms Canada, Shannon. Brittany has taken me under her care and has been showing me the ins and outs of the fascinating world that is mushrooms. Although this is been a wild learning curve, I’m really loving my new position (because who doesn’t love mushrooms?!).

The worst part, however, is starting a new position while sneezing and coughing at my desk. It seems like everyone around me is fighting off sore throats and sniffly noses, why couldn’t I be the anomaly? Rather than reaching for the tissue box for the ump-teenth time, I went searching for a hot soup that sounded not only delicious, but would fill me as well – (leaving me to rest on the couch with a good movie!)

All mushroom varieties contain folate, while most varieties are also a good source of riboflavin and niacin, which help boost your immune system. Mushrooms also provide the minerals copper, selenium, potassium and phosphorus – the essential minerals to help boost antioxidants! Including versatile and delicious mushrooms in your diet will have you feeling better in no time. Perfect for when you’re feeling at your worst!

These soups are the perfect solution for feeling under the weather this time of year and seem to make flu season bearable. I look forward to blogging for Mushrooms Canada, and am even more excited to post while feeling myself. Until next time mushroom lovers…
