Bowl of Health--Turmeric Ginger Soup

Anti inflammation magic recovery soup...drink it cold, hot, for breakfast lunch or dinner...

Fresh Harvest seasonal veggies inspired soup...  I can't get enough of the Georgia local Farmers picks where I don't have to decide what to buy.  The produce arrives and I get to figure out what to do with it. So much fun and exciting.  When the tumeric root showed up I wasn't quite sure what to do with it but then it dawned on me that this would be the most perfect ingredient to kick off the perfect soup that will aid in our constant fight to balance our bodies and reduce inflammation.  If you haven't heard or looked into this and are struggling with disease, allergies or just plain jane sickies, your body has inflammation that needs to be addressed.  Your body is only inflamed because it is doing all it knows to combat a poor nutrition diet.  Get your inflammation under control and see the power your body has now to fight off infection, disease and keep your allergies at bay.  Take control now so your body can do what it is designed to do.  Eliminate the culprit...inflammation, and start living again!
