When it comes to healthy eating, vegetables are key. Many people claim they do not like raw vegetables though and that is how their diets suffer. But soups really can provide the solution to this issue.
Especially in the winter when all one wants to consume is comfort food such as mashed potato, hearty vegetable soups are an amazing way to go. Start off by sautéing an onion and then adding whatever vegetables you like – the more colorful the better. One example is an “orange” soup whereby you add sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots and pumpkin. Boil for a while until soft and then blend. All you need for flavoring is salt and pepper (and turmeric for an extra anti-inflammatory boost).
Healthy soups are a great way to incorporate vegetables into one’s diet (and new healthy eating regime) without feeling like one is missing out on (less healthy) comfort foods.
