Say Hello to Souping!

Move over juicing – it is time to say hello to souping. Soups are an excellent, nutritious and delicious way to boost your body with healthy nutrients and fibre. What is more, soups are satisfying, comforting, economical, tasty, portable and wonderfully easy to make!


Reasons to Love Soup

  1. Soups use whole veggies, giving you loads of fabulous fibre, whereas juicing extraction methods tend to remove a lot of the fibre.
  2. Unlike juices, soups can handle a wide range of nutrient-rich healthy fats – including coconut, olive and other oils – great for giving you energy and stabilising your blood sugar.
  3. Non-vegetarian soups can be an excellent way to boost protein intake, especially if you use a bone broth or homemade chicken or fish stock as a base.
  4. Soups can range from being simple and comforting (like this Vegetable Soup with Croutons) to sumptuous gourmet delights (like this sophisticated Beetroot and Hibiscus Soup).
  5. Homemade soup is just as portable as your favourite smoothie and makes a great winter meal-on-the-go for both school and office lunches.
