Soup is an important source of fiber, minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and water. It is a light, practical and healthy option to include in your meals, but you must choose fresh and varied vegetables, avoid tinned and packet soup.

There are 7 good reasons to include it in your meals:

  • It contains a high nutritional value;
  • Contributes to the intake of water in the recommended amounts;
  • When protein (meat, fish or egg) and carbohydrates (pasta, rice or potatoes) are added, it can perfectly work as a main course;
  • Allows you to take advantage of all the nutrients that dissolve in the water during cooking;
  • Favors an easy digestion;
  • Increases the consumption of vegetables.

The recommendations of the World Health Organization are that you should consume at least 400g of fruit and vegetables per day. Soup can and should be a choice to comply with this advice.

For lunch or dinner, hot or in a cold version, as a starter or main course, there are a thousand and one ways to enjoy yourself in a healthy way. Aromatic herbs and spices can be added and thus make your soup the favorite at home!
