Soup is a wonderful way to fast track your way back to a state of bodily stasis. It's easy to make, perfect for packing to the brim with vegetables, and the recipes are almost always forgiving—feel free to sub in whatever you have lying around (we're looking at you, leftovers). Because they're cooked, soups are also a bit easier on your digestion than smoothies or salads, making them a gentle way to help your system bounce back. Whip up your favorite, go for a walk outside, drink a ton of water, and you'll be feeling better in no time.
