Flu Season + Giveaway Winner!!

Happy Flu Season, friends. If you’re following the news here in the U.S., then you know that this is being called one of the worst flu seasons in quite some time.

The foods you eat can have a substantial impact on your health, and there are many amazing and natural foods you can eat to boost your immune system and outsmart this flu virus this year.

Unfortunately, Tony and I weren’t able to avoid the flu, but from what I understand, it could have been a million times worse for us. Most of the time I was able to keep my energy up, and last Thursday I worked from home. I don’t want to be that person in the office who gets everyone else sick.

For dinner on Sunday I made a soup from the new cookbook (and giveaway prize). I made the creamy chestnut soup. Amazing!

The soup included 1 cup of fresh shiitake mushrooms. Shiitakes are known for their excellent immune boosting properties and can help us get back into fighting shape!

A bonus: our shiitakes were SUPER fresh and organic because they were grown by Tony!!!

Is that the weirdest picture I’ve ever shared on here? Probably.

My parents gave us a shiitake growing kit for Christmas, so it’s pretty cool that we’re able to use our own crop in a meal.
