What foods are best on rainy days?

While you can eat a variety of foods on rainy days, my personal favorite is soup. There are lots of benefits to soup (though the benefits do depend on what KIND of soup you’re making).

In particular, soups made with bone broth are extra nourishing (not to mention flavorful).

Soups are also a great way to get lots of veggies into your body, like onions, garlic, carrots, celery, and more.
