Holiday breads are available daily at the Atlanta Bread Company at Pelham. The breads, nine varieties and special ordered, are baked fresh with no preservatives.

When I was little, my grandmother loved to make chicken soup to ease cold and flu symptoms. I couldn’t smell the delicious broth, but it sure felt good going down. I did some research to see if grandma’s soups and tea remedies had magical healing powers or if it was just the wonderful hugs she gave as she wrapped me in my favorite blanket.
Chicken soup does actually help clear nasal clogging. Salmon stew helps with omega-3 fatty acids from the salmon, which have an ant-inflammatory effect. Dark greens added to hot vegetable soup are loaded with vitamins A and C and Ginger seems to settle stomachs. Adding these components to your immune systems gives it strength to fight off those nasty winter colds and infections. I have added a few of my favorite recipes that you can make this cold and flu season.
Tickets are $50 per person (host sponsorships $250) with proceeds benefiting the Neonatal Care Center at St. Francis eastside.
