This week I needed to add a couple more things into my weekly meal prep to ensure I’m getting certain vitamins & minerals.
I had a head of cauliflower that I hadn’t used yet. I opened my Tone It Up Frisky Fall nutrition plan edition & found an awesome soup recipe called Bowl of Sunshine (page 29) to make this Sunday night. It was super easy to make.
I’ll break down the nutritional content & why I made it.
Cauliflower: Vitamin C, Vitamin K – Since my immune system is a bit messed up right now I need to ensure I’m constantly boosting it with Vitamin C. Vitamin K aids in blood clotting, brain health & bone health (all good things to consider)
Onion: Sulfur or Sulphur is a mineral element essential to glutathione production in the body that boost the immune system. I’ve also found research that it aid’s in body electron transport, proper insulin function & detoxification in the body. The Wahls Protocol which I’m reading does a great job of explaining this and got me eating more onion & mushrooms.
Curry, Turmeric, Black Pepper & Cayenne Spices: Turmeric is imperative for me to get for anti-inflammatory properties & absorbion is made bio-available with black pepper!

The soup was amazing. There is an option to top with Avocado which I may try tomorrow!
For the past two weeks, I’ve been also buying a head of cabbage & stir-frying it with onions & mushrooms as one of the side dishes that I can add in a tupperware with chicken or steak or fish.
Cabbage also is high in Vitamin C & K & the onions & mushrooms give me the sulphur I need.
Happy Meal Prepping!
