“Look after the roots of the tree, and the fragrant flower and luscious fruits will grow by themselves. Look after the health of the body, and the fragrance of the mind and richness of the spirit will follow." -B.K.S. Iyengar
I know I'm not alone when I say that I'm looking forward to spring. It seems as if much of the country has been dealing with one of the worst winters ever and everyone is just counting down the days until warmth, sunshine, and flowers. I'm lucky enough to live in Seattle where winter weather isn't quite that extreme, but man am I missing those long days of sunshine! The other day, I was out walking in my neighborhood and saw lots of crocuses and daffodils blooming and I became so giddy with excitement. This year, everything seems so much more exciting for me as the days draw closer to when I meet my baby girl. It's magical.
I want to leave you all with this immune system-boosting soup that's really perfect for this time of year when you may be dealing with cold weather sniffles or just the end of winter blues. It's loaded with vegetables and literally takes ten minutes to make. You'll feel good after eating it. Almost as good as you'll feel finding that first blooming daffodil of spring.
