Feeling under the weather this time of year? Feed your defense system with fortifying, immune-boosting, and anti-microbial foods. Wild Mushroom and Root Vegetable Soup is a perfect way to banish those pesky winter bugs, since it contains wonderful immune-boosting wild mushrooms, anti-microbial ginger, anti-inflammatory turmeric, and detoxifying onions, garlic and parsley. All those lovely, colorful root veggies will nourish both body and soul too.
Mushrooms are also a Younger You superfood since they modulate the activity of enzymes involved in methylation, including DNA methylation and have been shown to reduce excess levels of homocysteine. Plus, they are a good source of the methyl donors folate and choline; and vitamins D, B2, B3 and B6.
To learn more about how to eat and live your way to methylation health and longevity, see Dr. Kara Fitzgerald’s Younger You program and her Younger You book which contains over 70 recipes, sample meal plans and many other practical resources to help you live longer, better.
