Warming fall lentil soup
Here is my recipe from my delicious and warming bowl of lentil soup. This recipe has a little something for everyone. This time of year, our meridians and organs can get attacked by cold and dampness in our environment. This can lead to increase illness, fatigue, poor memory and energy, digestive sluggishnes, chills, aching muscles, and more.
The key ingredients in this soup is the cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, onion, clove, tumeric, garlic, and lentils. Incorporating large amounts of foods with the properties we are looking for is the key to having food successfully impact our health.
So, put on your cozy socks, and get ready to make a big steaming pot of soup to help warm you from the inside out!
