Lately, I feel under the weather.
I wake up feeling tired, my back aches pretty much for the most part of the day and I am constantly feeling uninspired to do things like going to the gym or even walking Cruzy!
Enough is enough, I said the other day.
So, I did a bit of online searching with the hope of finding a combination of superfoods that will boost my immune system and change my mood. Unfortunately, there is not a magic ingredient that can get you energised instantly, however, there is something that can make you feel much better!
Insert TURMERIC. This golden, turmeric broth detox soup is better than diving in the golden porridge pot. It made me feel stronger and also helped lift my mood. Win-win!
Looking for turmeric broth recipes, I came upon the Centre Point’s initiative (UK’s leading youth homelessness charity), launching The Big Broth! This is a competition looking to find new soup recipes, that Yorkshire Provender will put into production this autumn with 20p on every pot sold going straight back into funding Centre Point’s work with the young homeless in London and other major UK cities. Knowing that with every pot of soup I can help 9,200 vulnerable young people every year find their way makes me incredibly happy after seeing first hand the devastating situation in the streets of the big Scottish cities with young homeless people looking for some help last Christmas. So this is my entry for the competition, hoping to raise a bit more awareness about the young homeless situation. If you would like to submit your favourite recipe for this great cause, then please do it HERE. Good luck!
