So I don't know about you, but just about everyone, including myself has had this gross winter cold. Sore throat, stuffy nose, chest congestion, stay up all night because you can't sleep, cold. And it's gross. Thankfully I'm getting over it, but anytime I have that cold, this is a staple. In many Greek circles it's called "Greek Penicillin." The lemon helps with the throat, the warm broth helps with congestion, and all the veggies, chicken, egg, and rice help feed your body.
