(: Get Well Soon :)

I have been battling a head cold and cough the past few days and finally went to the hospital early this morning.  First let me say that Dominican Hospital's emergency department has the greatest staff, they were awesome, upbeat, kind and caring from start to finish.  I got prescribed two inhalers for my lungs and told to continue on with the tea's, juice, water and soup I have been using to help me get better.

Really cool thing was that although I have sinusitis the doctor didn't prescribe me any antibiotics.  I was confused at first as I have always been prescribed antibiotics for sinusitis over the years.  He explained to me that antibiotics really aren't that effective in treating sinus infections, just let it run it's course and it will pass.  He doesn't like to give antibiotics unnecessarily, wow, that rocks!

 So I made this totally healthy "Get Well Soon" soup for myself today.  Totally staying on my diet with this one and should help me get well soon, yeppers!

Thought I would share this one with you as it turned out super tasty and already I feel a little better, enjoy!
