This time last year saw me with the mother of all colds. I was miserable, snotty and high on paracetamol. Enter my heroic boyfriend with a pot of steaming broth – he scored some brownie points that day, that’s for sure. It was like the elixir of life, every sip seemed to revive me more and serve my nasty viral affliction with the eviction notice my body was taking way too long to give.
Luckily this year my immune system seems a little more alert (still too dozy for my liking!) so I haven’t suffered from a similar variety of cold. But the thought of that broth sends shivers of warmth down my spine, so here’s my crack at it. I modified this recipe from a book called The Healthy Skin Diet, a book I recommend for those suffering from health woes as it assists more than just your skin.
