We talked about the medicinal properties of chicken soup in our article Flu Fighters. Now, let’s get our veg on — explore why veggie soup is so good for us, then enjoy a mouth-watering vegetable soup recipe from Monica M.!


8 Reasons to Feed Your Family Home-Cooked Vegetable Soup

  1. Healthy
  2. Inexpensive
  3. Excellent for the digestive system
  4. Filling and delicious — a great way to lose weight
  5. Effective way to get kids to eat their veggies
  6. A smart way to use aging vegetables before they go to waste
  7. Truly low in sodium, as opposed to canned vegetable soups, which tend to be high in sodium. Even the “sodium-reduced” canned soups usually only have a 25% reduction in sodium.
  8. You get a high amount of the vegetables’ nutrients when you consume them in soup form. Some vegetable lose a percentage of their minerals and vitamins during the washing and cooking process (varies by vegetable and method of cooking). By controlling how much water you use (the less the better) and simmering the vegetables, you can retain most of the nutrients that may leach out.
