Fall weather makes me want warm bowls of soup. And quick soups are a great way to squeeze in lots of veggies and nutrition into a meal, and they can keep in the fridge as easy leftovers for snacks or other meals. Eating Well magazine has a great list of 30-minute Soups, and as your resident foodie chef, I've chosen my favorites for your healthier living: Sweet Potato Peanut (make sure you have fresh peanut butter, not loaded with preservatives or sweetneers) Chicken and White Bean (beans have great fiber and we all need more of it!) Salmon Chowder (wild salmon, yum!) Vietnamese Beef Noodles (you can swap out the rice noodles and use mung bean noodles for better nutrition -- and they really taste the same to me)
With any of the veggie soups, pair up with a lean protein and you've got a full meal! Whenever they suggest pairing up their soups with caesar salad (high-fat) or garlic bread (simple carbs), please know that those 2 items are *not* slim-body friendly foods and judge your portions wisely if you eat those items.
