Warm Up with Healthy Recipes for National Soup Month

What a nice surprise to see January is National Soup Month!

I eat a big bowl of homemade soup pretty much every day. Not so much because I really love soup.  I prepare it and eat it as a healthy eating food strategy. The USDA recommends we eat about 6 cups of fresh, in a wide variety, fruits and veggies everyday which is not an easy task. Soup is an easy solution. 

Each week of the year I cook up a big pot of soup, loaded with fruits or vegetables, beans in a yummy broth. I think of soup as my make once, eat 8 times meal. Don't like all that chopping? No problem. Most food markets now have veggies all chopped up, ready to dump into a big pot, with a delicious pre-made organic broth, throw in a few spices plus load of garlic and you're ready to go!
