healthy_eatingWhen you are trying to lose weight, vegetables are definitely your friend. A great way to pack a load of vegetables into your diet is through soup.
Soup is a terrific lunch or main meal as it is filling, nutritious and simple to make.
Make a batch at the start of the week and keep it in the fridge for a go-to lunch option. Or freeze portions for nights when you don’t feel like cooking.
As the weather cools down soup is really comforting as it warms you up from the inside out, and fills you right up.
Today we have pulled together some of our favourite veggie-loving soup recipes to remind you how versatile (and delicious) vegetables can be.

  • Carrot (23 calories per 100g)

This Carrot, Corn, Coconut and Coriander Soup uses loads of fresh veggies as well as heart-healthy coconut to give you a bowl full of goodness that the whole family will love.
Did you know? Carrots are not always orange. You can find purple, white, red or yellow carrots too. Ask your green grocer!

  • Beetroot (48 calories per 100g)

Earthy red beetroots are a great vegetable to eat when you are trying to lose weight. They contain vitamins A, some B vitamins, C, folic acid, iron and calcium. Try this Beetroot Apple and Horseradish Soup – the colour is amazing!
Did you know? Beetroot contains betaine, which is a substance that relaxes the mind. Beets also contains trytophan (found in chocolate) and has been found to contribute to a strong sense of well being.

  • Asparagus (25 calories per 100g)

The amazing green-ness of this Creamy Pea Asparagus and Mint Soup comes from a whole load of healthy green ingredients.
Did you know? Asparagus are thought to have healing properties and can ease the discomfort of a bee sting. Simply crush up some asparagus and apply to the affected area.

  • Zucchini (15 calories per 100g)

If you are one of those people that think that zucchini is not terribly flavoursome, this Zucchini, Lemon and Basil Soup is sure to change your tune.
Did you know? Zucchini has more potassium than the same amount of banana.

  • Tomato (18 calories per 100g)

Tomatoes are great for weight loss as they contain fibre. Fibre will keep you fuller for longer, meaning you are less likely to overeat. We love this vibrant Spicy Bloody Mary Soup.
Did you know? Tomatoes are the world’s most popular fruit, followed by bananas, then apples, then oranges.
