It’s springtime and the flu season is still in full force, this is why it is important for the body to build up immunity to stay healthy. In this delicious comforting soup, I used superfoods such as lemon, spinach, garlic, ginger, and turmeric all of which are packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants may help to lower your risk of infection this is why it is important to increase your antioxidant intake during the flu season. What I love about this soothing Instant pot immune boosting lemon chicken and spinach soup recipe is, it’s speedy and super easy. Some scientific studies found that chicken soup has anti-inflammatory properties making this soup good for soothing cold and flu symptoms.
