Embracing Autumn’s Immune-Boosting Harvest

As the vibrant colours of summer fade into the warm hues of autumn, our bodies naturally begin to crave heartier, more comforting foods. This season is a time of transition, not just in nature but also in our bodies, as we adjust to cooler temperatures and prepare for the winter ahead. One way to support our health during this time is by incorporating immune-boosting ingredients into our meals. Here are three recipes that make the most of autumn's produce while also helping to bolster your immune system.

1. Immune-Boosting Vegetable Soup


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3/4 pumpkin, peeled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric 
  • 1 teaspoon ginger 
  • 1 clove garlic minced, and 1 clove garlic 
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  2. Add carrots, celery, and sweet potato to the pot. Cook for a few minutes.
  3. Pour vegetable broth into the pot.
  4. Place garlic clove, ginger and turmeric in a Tea Swag and place in the broth to stoop.
  5. Bring the broth to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
  6. Add chopped kale to the pot and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.

Note:  If you don’t have a Tea Swag, you can simply swap for ground ingredients. 

2. Autumn Healing Juice


  • 2 apples
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 beet
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • 1/2 lemon, peeled


  • Wash and chop all the fruits and vegetables into small pieces.

3. Rejuvenating Spiced Chai Tea

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 whole cloves 
  • 4 cardamom pods 
  • 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced 
  • 1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • Honey, to taste


  1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Divide the black tea,  cloves, cardamom pods, and ginger between two Tea Swags and place in the pot. Add the cinnamon stick loose in the pot. 
  2. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Add milk to the saucepan and heat until hot but not boiling.
  4. Remove from heat and let steep for an additional 5 minutes.
