Ginger Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
A warming and hearty meal, this soup is perfect for those experiencing nausea and/or vomiting from cancer treatment. Ginger has been shown to help soothe nausea, while broth-based soups can provide much-needed fluids and electrolytes. High in protein and cancer-fighting antioxidants, it is also an ideal meal for those looking for a healthy and flavorful soup to prepare ahead of time and to store in the freezer. For a filling and delicious meal, enjoy with a slice of your favorite bread or crackers.
