The attractive benefits of a nutritious soup are really valuable for busy mums with families of any size. Soup is a great winter warmer and a healthy meal option.
Benefits of nutritious soup
Soups made from a vegetable-base are high in vitamins and minerals. This is a great way to ensure that the family gets all of their vegetables and nutrients. To ensure your soup is high in vitamins and minerals use beans or sweet potato as a base. Protein such as chicken or red meat is the key ingredient to help your family feel satisfied.
Soup is a great option for dinner or lunch for busy mums who need a quick meal option for themselves or for the whole family. It provides peace of mind that you and the whole family is eating a nutritious meal.
Soup made in large quantities can be stored in the freezer. This eliminates overwhelm at meal times and helps with getting organised. A freezer stacked with soup will help you feel like you have your life back and stop the stressing about what’s for dinner.
Soup made from homemade stock has added benefits. To make your own stock you need cheap bones or carcasses. They are simmered for a long time on low or in a slow cooker. The stock contains the minerals from the bones that help to boost our immune systems and aid digestion.
Soup is a great meal for kids to enjoy lots of vegetables. My pumpkin soup doesn’t just contain pumpkin like my kids think. It is a great way to increase their vegetable intake without them even knowing it.
