Chicken Vegetable Soup
The pungency from the chilli pepper triggers a very slight feeling of pain in us, which in turn causes an endorphin release, i.e. the pepper makes us euphoric.
You can vary the number of chillies depending on the desired spiciness. The spicy chicken vegetable soup can be prepared well and taken to work the next day. You can find more Meal Prep dishes in our weekly menu.
