I recently tried the delicious Nourish Soup Blend from Kyth+Kyn. It’s a Chinese herbal soup designed by a Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor and a Holistic Nutritionist. Knowing that it would obviously be really good for you I was a little suspicious of how it might taste. I was surprised by just good it was!
It’s super easy to make, and you can add whatever you like. The company suggests ginger, carrots, water, and chicken or pork, but you can also omit the meat and just go vegetarian. I tried it both ways and loved both.
Here are the ingredients, as mentioned on the Kyth+Kyn website:
wild yam root (shan yao)
- helps with digestion
- nourishes the blood
- replenish and supplement our body’s qi
- regulates mood
- promotes better sleep
- anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial
- promotes healthy digestion
- calms the mind to ease anxiety and stress
- detoxifies the liver
- alleviates constipation
- boosts immune system
- nourishes the body
- sweetens soup naturally
