Feeling stressed after a busy day? Unwind with a bowl of this delicious red-pepper soup. When you're stressed, your body releases the hormone cortisol to help you cope, which is an inherently good thing. But when you're constantly stressed, those high cortisol levels can lead to inflammation. To help combat the inflammation, choose foods high in anti-inflammatory compounds, like the vitamin C you get from red bell peppers and the healthy fats you get from peanuts in this healthy soup.
Plus, soup itself is soothing. This Roasted Red Pepper & Peanut Soup with Crispy Spiced Chickpeas is just the thing to make after a stressful day.
