Easy Immune-Boosting Zoodle Soup


<p data-wpview-marker=

Last week I recorded the zoodle soup I made in like 5 minutes during my lunch break and shared it on my Instagram

So many people messaged me asking about the “recipe” so I thought I’d share it on my blog too (even though the picture is not the best because it’s just a screen shot from the video I took 😉) 

You can see how easy it came together in the video below!

What Makes this an Immune-Boosting Soup?

This soup is not only EASY and DELISH, it’s also full of immune-boosting ingredients. I could eat a variation of it any time of year, but it’s great for Fall/Winter when we’re all trying to avoid getting sick. 

These ingredients in particular have immune-building superpowers: 

Bone broth

I always try to keep some homemade bone broth on hand (I usually make a big batch and freeze some for later) 

Bone broth contains easily assimilated nutrients that help to keep our gut in tip-top shape. And as we know, our immune system resides in our gut!

Back in the day, people used to refer to homemade broth as “Jewish penicillin” because of its ability to prevent and fight infections and boost immunity. 

Plus, it tastes amazing!

(If you don’t have homemade broth, you can also use store-bought.) 

Ginger

Ginger is great for digestion and has lots of health benefits, including it’s ability to prevent cancer

Because it’s naturally antimicrobial, ginger helps fight off infections and boost immune health. 

I love the little bit of heat it gives soup!

Garlic

Compounds in garlic are known to boost the function of the immune system.

One large, 12-week study found that a daily garlic supplement reduced the number of colds by 63% compared to a placebo. 

You can take a supplement, but I prefer to get the benefits from using garlic to cook with!

It adds so much flavor to anything savory. 

What Made this Soup Come Together in a Flash?

I made this soup in like 5 minutes because I had some help from food prepping and leftovers! 

  • As I mentioned I always try to have frozen bone broth on hand. At the beginning of the week I thawed some out and had it ready to go when I wanted some. 
  • I also had prepped some zucchini noodles (zoodles) so I could use in meals throughout the week. I use the Inspiralizer to make zoodles. 
  • The grass fed ground beef was leftover from the night before when I sauteed up more than we needed for dinner (on purpose).

This light-weight prep is not a huge time commitment, but it makes my life so much easier (and healthier) during the busy week. Don’t think of it as a chore, but a gift to your future self!
