Make soup a regular part of your daily diet

When I was a child, when I was not well or was lying in bed with the cold virus, my mother insisted that I have a bowl of warm and nutritious soup. It’s a great comfort food and maybe it was a placebo effect, but I always seem to feel better after a bowl of hot soup. I particularly like to eat soups on cold, gloomy winter days. The great thing about soup is that you can make it with whatever food you have in your kitchen, and that includes leftovers. To make good tasting soups, make sure you have a great soup broth.

If you are interested in making great soups, you will find thousands of recipes on the internet or on the shelves. It is not very necessary to have special equipment to prepare excellent soups. Sometimes all you need is a cutting board, a sharp knife, and a frying pan. A blender will be a useful piece of equipment to obtain the consistency of your choice.

The soup is international and the taste and ingredients vary. Lentils are used in the Far East and although they have different names, it is basically a soup. With globalization we are now lucky enough to enjoy all these fabulous soups and by making homemade soups we can now continue to add new items from abroad.

Health experts tell us that we should eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Soup is a great way to reach your daily goal. Fruits high in carbohydrates and fructose are not the best option for many. Vegetables, beans, nuts, and lentils are recommended by all health professionals and are the natural choice for soups. Most children are unwilling to eat vegetables, especially broccoli and other brain foods. In soups, you can add servings of these healthy foods and blend the final product and children will have no idea that they are enjoying foods that they find unpleasant.

In today’s stores there are various soup makers. Some are very expensive, but the price has dropped since Cuisinart, a company known for its reliability, joined the market. Now all you need to do is chop up your food, add your broth to your soup machine and leave it in the soup machine and once completed you can use the blender option to give your soup the consistency you want. Soup makers available in stores will mix, cook, and make soup, and the whole process takes about an hour. If time is short, then a tureen is an excellent option. It is also a wonderful little kit in your kitchen if you have young children.
