6 Ways To Use Leftover Rice
6 Ways to Make Your Soup a Bowl with Health Benefits
1. Soup is a Perfect Vehicle for Veggies
Fresh, canned, or frozen, you can add any veggies to soup because you're not necessarily looking for a crisp texture and mouth feel. Frozen and canned vegetables are easier to store and are usually less expensive than fresh types.
2. What You Put in Soup Stays in Soup
Whatever beans, vegetables, or proteins (chicken, meat) you add will get cooked directly within the soup, thereby retaining valuable vitamins and minerals that would otherwise get lost in other forms of meal preparation.
3. If You Hate Veggies, Learn to Disguise Them
If you're not a veggie lover (but you know you should be eating more of them), try using an immersion blender. This inexpensive tool is perfect for pureeing veggies right within the pot of soup. It's easy to use, clean, and store and turns a chunky soup into a creamy one in minutes.
4. Cook Now, Sip Later
Make more than you need and store soup in small containers in the freezer. Carry some to work with you and pop it in the microwave for an afternoon snack that will carry you through to dinner without needing to pay a visit to the vending machine.
5. Add a Soup to Your Meal to Cut Calories
Studies show that a bowl of broth-based soup before a meal can help you eat less at that meal and thereby help slash your calorie budget. Cream-based soups, of course, might add more calories than you bargained for, so when dining out, ask your server about what might be hidden in that bowl.
6. Watch Out for Sodium in Stocks and Canned Soups
Read labels carefully to check serving size since some canned soups may show half a can as a portion, in which case you'd have to double all of the numbers listed on the Nutrition Facts Panel. To help keep sodium in check, jazz up your soup with savory spices and seasonings — a healthy way to showcase your creativity!
