Za’Atar Toast: Take your avocado toast to the next level!
Hey Busy moms, dads & all caregivers! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you know that avocado toast is all the rage. Starting on menus of the hippest eateries, I recently saw it and ordered it from the menu of a basic airport restaurant. I’ve been experimenting with how to take avocado toast up a notch and hit the jackpot by adding the ancient spice called Za’atar (click on the link for brand that I use). This spice blend condiment is generally made with ground dried thyme, oregano, marjoram, and then mixed with toasted sesame seeds, salt, and other spices such as sumac.
Supercharged Chicken Soup
A bowl of your mom’s chicken soup can help fight a cold! This is not an old wives tale. Chicken soup is a proven healing liquid handed down to us over many generations. A big bowl of chicken soup can help clear nasal congestion and ease cold symptoms due to its mild anti-inflammatory effect.
The key to its healing is to simmer the bones with vegetables and herbs over many hours to pull out all the amazing vitamins, minerals, proteins and amino acids. This nutrient dense broth lines the stomach and protects it from toxins.
