Make a Mix Monday: Mixes For Cold and Flu Season

I've been searching for mixes to give or have on hand when I find out someone is sick, or even to use when my whole household is sick which would cut down on cook-time.

Here are some great mixes that I've found:

Chicken Noodle Soup:

Chicken Noodle Soup Mix in a Jar  - from

This one is good except that the carrots and celery and chicken aren't already prepared.  I suppose I could think ahead and put some cut-up carrots and celery in the freezer...

But here is another one with all the ingredients except the chicken (plus more meal-in-a-jar recipes - scroll down to see the chicken noodle soup recipe).

Basic Cold and Flu Tea:

Cold and Flu Tea with Elderberries  - from

This looks amazingly tasty!  A-N-D...elderberries are "used for [their] antioxidant activity to lower cholesterol, improve vision, boost the immune system, improve heart health and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections and tonsillitis. Elderberry juice was used to treat a flu epidemic in Panama in 1995". (
