Tip 7 of 10 - Soup is Simple and Soothing
10 Cooking Tips for People With Arthritis
When someone is sick, they are often told to have some chicken soup. For whatever reason, soup really does help people feel better. Soup is simple to prepare and nutritious. Make sure you have canned soups available for when you are having very bad days or the ingredients to make soup when you feel up to cooking. Soup will warm you and soothe you.

When moving the soup pot, make sure you have a good grip on both handles of the pot. Use a ladle to pour soup into the bowl at the table where you will be eating, so you don't have to carry a bowl full of hot soup across the kitchen.
