 by Mia Rigden Board-certified nutritionist, classically trained chef

Every season has a hero recipe that I make on repeat; this is it for me this winter. Hearty, flavorful, and nourishing, this Chicken and Wild Rice Soup just hits the spot. Garlic and ginger are great for combating any seasonal sniffles, and store-bought rotisserie chicken offers an easy no-cook way to add protein. And the best part? It comes together in under an hour but tastes like you’ve been cooking it all day. Pair with Lypo-Spheric® Magnesium L-Threonate and enjoy a relaxing winter evening at home.
