“Soup-of-the-Day” Recipe Feature (I) – Nourishment for Body, Mind, & Spirit!

Love Soup?

Yes, indeed!  What’s not to love??

After all, soup can be oh-so nourishing & satisfying & comforting & hydrating & healing & abounding with endless possibilities, even fitting to our Lenten practices! …As well as being economical, practical and convenient; wonderful for making in advance, too.

So for our “Soup-of-the-Day” feature (ongoing),

I would like to share with you various recipes that I find online & collect,

worthy of that description above!

…Starting with a soup that I, myself, look forward to trying very soon, especially for this coming Lent, which begins February 10th this year.  [For Catholics, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting & abstinence; with all Fridays during Lent days of abstinence as well.]

Today’s “Soup of the Day”:

CABBAGE SOUP

[with 3 different recipe options, via their associated links, to be served]

…coming right up!

Yet, still, ever-more reason to love our “Soup of the Day” is for its potential health-benefits, as many studies do indicate that increasing our consumption of plant foods like cabbage decreases our risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, overall premature mortality, & more!

And cabbage is especially lovable for its vitamin C, vitamin K, antioxidants, fiber (+ other nutrients); as well as for its known cancer-fighting compounds [such as DIM (3,3′-diindolylmethane), sulforaphane, apigenin]; and beneficial probiotics when in fermented form!

Now that truly is “Mmm, Mmm, Good-ness”!
