The Covid-19 pandemic has made all of us realise the importance of eating healthy food to build immunity, which is the body’s first natural defence against disease-causing bacteria and viruses. A stronger immunity considerably reduces the odds of getting sick. At the moment, when so many of us are trying different things to boost our immunity and fitness levels, we also (at times) crave tasty food, especially with the onset of the monsoon.
But healthy food does not always mean boring. There is nothing like consuming a tasty hot bowl of soup that is easy to make and tastes delicious. Munmun Ganeriwal, a nutritionist, suggests a good way to boost immunity with this raw turmeric (kacchi haldi) soup.
Treasured for its medicinal value, turmeric has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antiseptic properties. Also, if you recently got vaccinated, you can have this soup to build your immunity.
“Depending on what ingredients you use, they can be healing and can be a delicious addition to your diet,” she said in an Instagram post.
