My RA Soup

It's rainy and damp today and my joints certainly are feeling achy.  Today I decided to make myself a pot of soup to help with the swelling that is going on in my body.  The ingredients not only have properties that are anti-inflammatory, but they taste so delicious and warming on this damp and rainy day!  Here is more information on fruits and veggies that fight inflammation

4 cups organic vegetable stock
1 medium organic onion
1 large organic sweet potato
5 organic kale leaves
2 organic celery stalks
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (more if you like it really spicy)

Chop the onion and celery into medium sized pieces, (smaller if you prefer), and saute in 1/4 cup of vegetable stock*.  Once the onion and celery are sauteed, add the 4 cups stock and potato and kale, bring to a boil.  Add the paprika and cayenne and stir.  Add the sweet potato and kale and cover and turn heat to low.  Simmer for about 30 minutes.  Enjoy..........and feel better!!!

*get into the habit of sauteing without oils of any kind!  You can use veggie broth, veggie juice, water, wine, vinegar.
