It’s fall! Time for pumpkins, winter squash, apple cider, and … cold and flu season. We’ve been lucky enough to enjoy warm and summery temperatures through September this year, but nonetheless I caught my first cold a few weeks ago. Whenever I’m sick with a cold I try to focus on eating as well as I possibly can to support my immune system and cut down on phlegm: this means no alcohol, sugar, wheat or dairy until I’m feeling 100% better. It sounds restrictive but it really does make a huge difference in my recovery! I stumbled upon this recipe for Ginger Meatballs with Chinese Broccoli and really enjoyed it despite feeling miserable otherwise. It’s a perfect meal for this time of year with lots of immune support and warming properties from the aromatic broth laden with ginger and garlic. I made it with bone broth and used a full bunch of chinese broccoli. (I can never resist adding extra veggies!) Next time I’m going to try adding a can of coconut milk to the broth!
