Soups are a comfort food that can actually be healthy. Soup recipes can help fulfill some of the nutrients your body may be lacking. The average American doesn't eat enough fiber… do you know that women are supposed to get between 25-35 grams of fiber every day? Most women only consume closer to 10 grams daily, which means we really need to focus on adding fiber where and whenever we can. Soup is a great place to start by adding beans and extra vegetables to your favorite recipes. Added bonus, fiber tends to make us feeling satisfied longer. More satisfied, less likely to reach for those "other" comfort foods.
If you are feeling real motivated, try adding extra chicken, fish or lean beef to your soup selections to help meet your protein needs (average healthy pregnant women should consume around 70 grams of protein daily).
It's cold out there so pick one of our recipes and enjoy! Remember,you can drastically reduce the sodium (our worst enemy when it comes to bloating) in soup if you’re willing to make them yourself!
