It’s cold and the person sat next to you on the train was coughing like an extra out of The Walking Dead. Time to get some soup in your system. We don’t mean the stuff out of a can; that’s just expensive salt water. This immunityboosting soup is loaded with protein, garlic and ginger. The next time someone coughs in your face, you’ll be ready. Garlic and ginger are known to reduce muscle soreness, and can help ward off colds. Chilies contain capsaicin, which gives them their spicy flavour. Early studies suggest that capsaicin has anti-bacterial and anti-diabetic properties and can reduce LDL cholesterol levels.
