The weather has been quite dreary lately, which can make one just want to curl up on the couch with a warm blanket, favourite movie and a hot bowl of soup. Besides the immediate sense of nostalgia that soup can bring (your Mother making something to fill both your bowl and stomach) those comforting feelings are actually very beneficial to your well-being.
‘Soup is good for the health.
Perhaps the easiest way to add vegetables to your daily meals is to eat soup. You can make several bowls of soup filled with fruits and veggies each day and you’ll be filled. Eating vegetables is part of a healthy diet so veggie soups are highly recommended. Fiona Kirk wrote a book on soup as an effective diet. In her bestseller “Soup Can Make You Thin”, Kirk wrote:
“The wealth of ingredients in a bowl of soup provides a good balance of carbohydrates, protein and fats as well as the vitamins and minerals required to create energy and keep us firing on all cylinders.”
