Stick With Soup During the Winter Season

By Donna Stark

Are you still trudging through the cold days of this season searching for a little bit of warmth, comfort, and happiness? If so, look no further than your kitchen because a hot bowl of soup is the perfect solution to help you drive away those chilly temperatures! Whether it's chunky, clear, or creamy, soup is a great way to warm your soul and appease your heart. There's no better time than now to get cooking! Here are a few of the benefits that come from eating soup.

Homemade Soups are Good for You

Although it may be easy to buy and eat canned soup, homemade soup is a lot healthier for your body. By making your own soup at home, you get to control all the ingredients that go into it, which means you have the final say on how much salt, sugar, and fat it contains. On top of that, you can toss in more of the vegetables you like and less of the ones you don't.

Soup Is Inexpensive

If you are looking to cut back on some of your grocery bills without cutting back on the amount of nutrition you consume, you may want to consider making more homemade soups for the family. By simply filling your pot or slow cooker with a tasty broth, your favorite type of beans, some pasta or rice, and all the vegetables you want, you can fill everyone's tummy for days, and you won't have to spend a lot of money to do so!

Batches of Soup Can Be Frozen

Are there days of the week when you don't have much time to cook a healthy meal? Do you bring home fast food more often than you would like? It's days like these that soup was made for! Soup is an easy meal to cook ahead of time and freeze for those hectic times during the week. Make a batch over the weekend, pull it out of the freezer the night before you want to use it, and round out your meal with a quick salad and loaf of bread. It couldn't get any easier than that!

Soup Boosts Your Overall Health

Whether it's the extra hydration from the broth or all the vitamins and minerals from the vegetables, soup is great at boosting your overall health and wellness. Choose nutrient-dense vegetables and immune-fighting ingredients, such as fresh garlic and turmeric, to help you battle any type of virus you may be dealing with.

Soup for Everyone

Stop searching for warmth, comfort, and happiness this winter in all the wrong places. With all the different soup recipes you can find online, you shouldn't have any trouble picking a winner! Happy eating!
