Thank you to my friends at Nasopure for sponsoring this Spicy Coconut Soup Recipe post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
Whenever I'm craving soup, I head to my local Thai restaurant and order their delicious veggie coconut soup.
It's creamy and comforting, and the spices make me feel better when I have a cold or sinus issues.
Unfortunately, my nasal problems occur more frequently than I would like.
Do you suffer from sinusitis or seasonal allergies? I sure do.
That's why I was so excited when Nasopure sent me their nasal wash kit to try.
Maybe you're wondering what this has to do with cooking and recipes. Well, I find it very difficult to cook or enjoy food if I can't taste it because my nose is stuffed up. It's no wonder spicy foods seem appealing when you're congested.
And I always turn to foods like this Spicy Coconut Soup Recipe when I have a sinus infection.
But the last time I had to see the doctor for a sinus infection, he told me I needed to use a neti pot to clean my nasal passages.
However, try as I might, I just couldn't do it. I felt like I was drowning when I attempted to use it. And the solution would go down my throat. It was terrible!
So I admit I was a little nervous to try the Nasopure system the first time.
But guess what?
I was successful the very first time I tried it!
It was so easy! I read the directions and didn't have any problems. Plus it didn't feel uncomfortable or give me the sense I was drowning.
Now let's get to the Spicy Coconut Soup Recipe!
