Chicken Barley Mushroom Soup

This highly nutritious version of the age-old common cold elixir will also work to keep you hydrated, which can soothe a sore throat. Other greens, such as kale and chard, work here too.


For maximum nutrition, opt for hulled barley, which contains more of its fibre-rich bran than pearled barley (which has its outer husk removed). Hulled barley takes longer to cook, but soaking the grains for several hours will serve to lessen its cooking time.
