Hearty Barley And Shiitake Mushroom Soup Recipe


Easy To Make Shiitake Mushroom & Barley Soup For Breast Cancer

Shiitake mushrooms are promoted to fight the development and progression of cancer by boosting the body’s immune system. These mushrooms are also said to help prevent heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels and to help treat infections such as hepatitis by producing interferon, a group of natural proteins that stops viruses from multiplying. Promoters claim that eating both the cap and stem of the mushroom may be helpful. Shiitake contains proteins, fats, carbohydrates, soluble fiber, vitamins (A, B, B12, C, D, niacin), and minerals. We have included this hearty soup recipe that is healthy, easy to make and a meal in itself. Make a batch and freeze in single portions.

Indgredients

  • 1 package fresh shittake mushrooms, sliced
  • 3/4 cup pearled barley
  • 2 veggie cubes
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 to 2 cloves (left whole)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • Alkaline water to cover

Throw everything in a large pot. Cover, bring to a boil, and then turn down the heat and simmer slowly until the vegetables and barley are tender, about 1 hour.

The optimal diet to prevent cancer recurrence is not clearly defined yet.  Your diet should be based on the best interpretation of the scientific information available at this time.  It is Breast Cancer Authority Blog’s hope that our recipes will help cancer survivors maximize their odds for long-term survival.
