Why A Simple Soup Is So Good for Us!

When we think of soup, it's easy to become somewhat underwhelmed by the prospect. But if you are feeling under the weather, there is nothing quite like a nourishing bowl of soup. 

So let's reassess the humble soup, and how you can make it one of the best dishes in your diet. 

It Is Incredibly Diverse! 

It's a terrible cliche to say that soup is just a bit of meat and some vegetables in a stock. It can be, but soup is something that can be the foundation for a number of different flavors. 

You only have to look at this homemade Albondigas soup to see that you can turn the humble soup into something spicier and meatier. Let your inner artist out and add anything to the ball!

It Makes Vegetables More Appealing

If you don't like chewing through vegetables and salad, soup is one of the best ways to get more vegetables into your diet. The great thing about vegetables is that you can blitz them up and add them to any dish, and all the nutrients will be intact. 

It will be less of a hassle to eat, and we'll be full of the benefits. Compare this to people who drink a lot of smoothies, where the fruit is losing all of its nutrients because the fiber has been blitzed out.

It Is a Great Way to Stay Hydrated

You might not be getting the hydration you need during the winter months especially when you don't necessarily feel so thirsty. If you are trying to keep your hydration levels up, eating soup is one of the best ways to keep you feeling nourished. 

It's important to stay hydrated, even if you are not sweating much during the winter months, and having soup once a day in a big bowl should be a great way to get a lot of your water in one simple and sumptuous dish!

It's the Ultimate Convenience Food!

Soup is something that is so easy to make that it is almost criminal! If you are looking to make a big batch of vegetable soup with chicken, it's so easy to make. All you need to do is put everything in one large saucepan and let it cook for as long as possible so it accrues flavor. It is also a great way to get rid of any vegetables that are about to go off. But you can also freeze soup, and defrost it further down the line when you're feeling hungry. 

It's also a great way to save money, as a simple bowl of soup is one of those meals that goes a long way.

If you are trying to look after your health by incorporating more vegetables into your diet, while also saving money, soup is one of those things that can make a massive difference. 

Soup doesn't have to be an incredibly boring dish. As we are heading into the fall months, maybe it is time to reassess your perspective of the humble soup dish?
