When it comes to Anti-Inflammatory soups, this Turmeric Ginger Butternut Squash one is 💯! Packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients and vegan (unless you want to add some shredded chicken!), this will warm you right up in those cold months and keep you cozy!
When it comes to easy and nutritious, nothing comes closer than this simple roasted tomato soup. Not only is it full of phytonutrients from tomatoes, onion, and bell peppers, it’s also a great cold-weather comfort food.
Being from the South, I’ve had my fair share of collard greens as a kid–but never collard greens soup. Well, I’ve had my fair share of adults trying to get me to eat my collard greens as a kid. I was never a huge fan (being more of the ‘addicted to sugar‘ type).
But as an adult? Not only do I know the superpower of greens, I’ve experimented through the years to see what works, what doesn’t, and what I can tolerate in the name of getting needed nutrients and fiber into my body. (Cause my body does so much better when I’m taking care of it this way!)
This Creamy Collard Greens Soup recipe is not only right up there with ‘what works’, but my kids didn’t even know the difference between this and the broccoli-potato soup they regularly order at the steakhouse down the road. (Win for Mama!!)
So technically potatoes aren’t necessarily ‘frowned upon’ in an anti-inflammatory diet (unless you have to avoid nightshades). But what does happen is that they’re such a high-glycemic vegetable that it can raise blood sugar levels. High blood sugar is inflammatory.
That being said, I’ve been able to sub in butternut squash repeatedly on recipes (like this one) and my kids didn’t even know! They thought they were orange-y potatoes!
So without further ado, the collard green soup that my kids think is full of potatoes… (and other greens they think are NOT collards)… 😁
