Between fast-moving Omicron and typical colds and flus (turns out those are still a thing) this January has been a doozy for illness. Whether you’re fighting off a bug or just trying to keep your immune system in tip-top shape, here are some ideas for ways Southwest Michigan businesses can help:

Opt For Soothing, Healing Foods

We polled our Facebook group for their favorite local restaurants to pick up soothing soups and more when sick or recuperating. (Note: ask about curbside or delivery options!)

Hearty, brothy soup from Zoup! is a favorite in Southwest Michigan.
  • Zoup! for yummy brothy soups!” says Liz Petzke.
  • Caffe Tosi’s Minestrone: “It’s always our go-to – our family favorite!” says Bailey Bauer.
  • Paul Whicheloe recommends the Pozole Verde at Arriba Taqueria.
  • Full Circle Cafe‘s soups are very tasty! And, they deliver so you don’t have to go out when you’re under the weather,” says Dorothy Jean Rogers.
  • Heidi Southard opts for Hot and Sour or Egg Drop Soup from Hong Kong Kitchen.
