3 Spots for Chicken Soup in Denver
These soups spots are perfect for when you need a little comfort and care!
Cold and flu season arrived in Denver early this year and it’s shaping up to be a doozy. While science isn’t strong enough to confirm with certainty that chicken soup is truly a miracle cure in a bowl, we can all attest that it sure can feel like one when we’re sick. Some research suggests that because sipping hot chicken soup helps clear stuffy noses, and the zinc and other minerals in chicken broth may help shorten the duration of the common cold.
A cup of the stuff can also help you hydrate, soothe your sore throat, and even may contain anti-inflammatory substances that can help relieve some of a cold or flu’s symptoms. Which is a long way of saying that if you’ve come down with the bug that’s going around, you should order some soup. It’ll help you feel better. Here are three places where you can get some of the good stuff:
