We’re in love with this immune-supporting (and nourishing) soup here at OB (especially if you’re having sniffles this soup is amazing).
Did you know that butternut squash is lower in sugar than other starchy veggies and is high in Vitamin B6 (needed to support the nervous system in times of stress)? And our Baobab also contains magnesium (for de-stressing), potassium and Vitamin C for a healthy immune system.
Plus ginger, goji and shiitake mushrooms give it extra powers to keep you sneeze-free!
