Eating Yam Rice Again? Is Herbal Chicken Soup Good For Health?

Yam rice has always been my favourite food to take for lunch or dinner. It is convenient and easy to cook though there are so much preparation before you can taste it. Today I am having yam rice again.

The yam that is sold in the East is always tasty. The texture of the yam just makes you want to eat it again even though you just ate it. No matter what way you cook yam here, you will always ask for more.

Herbal chicken soup to eat with yam rice is always
a healthy diet as the soup is good for blood circulataion.

Drinking herbal chicken soup also helps to improve our body immunity.
It is especially very useful if you have just recovered from an illness

or when you are feeling tired.
