Fall has fallen upon us, which means sweater, sweet potato, and soup season have all officially arrived! We love all three, especially that latter one, which we encourage you to add into your eat-clean-toolbox.
With the temps cooling down, it’s easy to slide away from light summer fare into heavier winter territory. However, jumbo sweaters are no excuse to add another layer to your diet or your tummy. Luckily with an arsenal of soup recipes on-hand, you can stay warm and satisfied without needing to take that path.
This particular recipe from our food blogging LifeVester Grace calls on an array of hearty harvest veggies to create a soup that’s both robust, yet light. That’s exactly the combination we recommend employing to stay slimming down and feeling good all throughout the season.
Perfect for both Meatless Monday and late October days when you want something a little warm and brothy, head on over to Grace’s blog for the recipe.
Then, as you continue to add more soup recipes to your eat-clean-toolbox, please share them with us! We’re suckers for soup, and would love to hear what’s filling your bowl.
“Lose weight.” Year after year, this remains the top ranking resolution made by goal-setters across the nation. Perhaps you’ve made that goal once or twice yourself. Maybe it tops your list every January. As part of the process towards becoming your healthiest self, it’s not a bad aspiration to lay out on the table. But lay it out, and spread it out, you must.
The hard truth is, 35% of us who make New Year’s resolutions break them by the end of the first month. And only 23% of everyone who makes a resolution will fully see it through to completion. So what’s the solution to sticking with your resolution? If you want to avoid putting the same goal on repeat every New Years, you need to break your objective down into small, achievable steps.
When it comes to losing weight, that means drawing up specific plans geared towards both your diet and exercise routine. What better place to start than in your soup bowl? We’re calling it your healthy eating soup-lution.
Whether striving to slim down or not, soup can be a great way to detox without feeling like you want to scream “more ice cream please.” We could all benefit from eating a bit healthier, and nowhere in that goal should depriving yourself be included. Juice diets? No thank you. At LifeVest, we’re all about drinking our juice, and having some soup, too. Check out these 14 soup recipes to jumpstart your 2014 in a warm & healthy, satisfying style.
