Soup-er Challenge

Soup-er Challenge

In this week's challenge you must Take soup 5 serves a day . Soup! This one pot meal can provide warmth and heaps of nutrition. Vegetable soups are a great option nutritionally as they combine a high nutrient density with a low energy density – this means that we get lots of key nutrients including vitamins and minerals for relatively few calories. Each serve of soup gives you 50-80% or your daily vegetable intake!

Benefits of Soup:

  1. Soup is warming

    Soup is a go-to food when temperatures plummet, and whether you're heading out or coming in from the cold, a quick bowl of your favourite concoction should work wonders warming you up.

  2. Soup can provide several of your five-a-day

    If you find chewing through plates of steamed or roasted vegetables and salad a bit of a chore, or you're not overly keen on munching away on fruit, soup is a fantastic way to get your five-a-day. Two or three veggies either chopped or whizzed up in a soup provide plenty of vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants, and are less of a hassle to eat that way.

  3. Soup is super-hydrating

    You can help keep your hydration levels up by eating soup, which of course, has an exceptionally high water content.

  4. Soup keeps you fuller for longer

    Several studies have found that soup can make you feel fuller for longer, and research has shown that regular soup eaters have healthier body mass indexes (BMI). People who eat soup before a main course tend to eat less overall, so consuming some of your calories in the form of soup can keep hunger at bay and help you lose weight, without making you feel like you're depriving yourself.
