All Souped Up

Contributed by SuperNature

Light and simple, or rich and hearty, a steaming bowl of soup is the ultimate comforting meal whether you’re down with the sniffles or when the weather turns chilly. Besides being absolutely delicious and wonderfully filling, here are four more reasons why you should slurp up this soothing dish:

1. Rich in vitamins and minerals

A nourishing soup that’s packed with nutrients can help you stave off colds and flus. In fact, studies show that chicken soup can help to prevent the common cold, especially if you load it up with immune-boosting ingredients such as fresh garlic, onions, celery and carrots. Plus, drinking warm soup also soothes sore throats.

2. Makes a satisfying meal

An easy dish to whip up even on busy weeknights, soups can go beyond just being appetisers. A simple soup can easily become a balanced yet satisfying one-pot meal. Go with a wholesome recipe that packs in the essentials - protein, carbohydrates, fat, fibre, vitamins and minerals - that you need for a nutritionally rich meal.

3. Improves veggie tolerance in kids

Have a picky little eater who shuns most vegetables with a vengeance? If setting an example for them or getting them involved in the food prep don’t work, soups could just be your secret sauce. Simply make one with their favourite veggies and sneak in a bit of their least favourite, by cutting them into really small pieces. This way, the flavour of the soup won’t be affected and your fussy little one won’t be able pick them out.

4. Supports Healthy Weight Management

Trying to lose weight doesn’t mean you have to settle for bland food or put up with perpetual hunger pangs. If you’re looking for a great addition to your diet to help manage your weight, soup is the perfect choice. Low in calories, yet delicious and incredibly filling, they’re a great way to get essential nutrients in while shedding pounds in a healthful manner.
