An Herb-Packed Soup to Nourish Your Body

An Herb-Packed Soup to Nourish Your Body

Seasonal and Traditional Healing Soup by The Sacred Science | Recipes/Soup | Herbalism

No matter the weather, my family and I are pretty committed to going outside and having a blast year-round.

I am a firm believer in not getting stuffed up in our house for two reasons:

  • No matter how cold it is, fresh air is vital to our health and our children's development.
  • Getting outside fights off the emotional/spiritual blues standard during certain times of the year or when you are pent up indoors too long.

Now, if you like to play hard in the colder months, you have got to make sure you are always nourishing your system with the best herbs, foods, and fluids that your budget allows. With that in mind, one thing we LOVE to make in our house is a nutrient-rich, herb-infused soup from the old country.

Though you cannot really go wrong with broth-based soups when you are sick, some work faster and more effectively than others because of their ingredients' healing nature.

The healing soup recipe below is a real crowd-pleaser that is super tasty and extremely good for you.

Cornucopia Soup

The Italian herbs in this recipe are famous for their ability to open your respiratory system while soothing the lining of your throat and any chest congestion. The turmeric and black pepper duo work together to bring down inflammation all over your body. Both the garlic and ginger help fight off the presence of any bacterial or viral infections!

Meanwhile, the whole veggies provide a wide range of vitamins and minerals to nourish your body back to health quickly. (While that is not a guarantee, it has been our experience. We make a vat of it and eat it during any mealtime.)

This delicious soup packs a serious healing punch!



  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp rosemary
