My Favorite Hearty and Healthy Soup Recipes

My Favorite Healthy Soup Recipes

Now that cold weather has arrived, one of my go-to meals for lunch or dinner is a heart yet healthy soup. Not only do soups warm me up when it’s cold outside, but I can pack a lot of nutrition into one bowl of soup: plenty of vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. Especially when I am training for a marathon, I want a meal that gives me the nutrition I need without requiring a long time over the stove – and a big batch of soup cooked up at the start of the week meets both of those criteria. 

Homemade soups allow you to control the ingredients as well, especially the sodium and any preservatives. The fresher ingredients mean homemade soups taste better – and make eating a few servings of vegetables much more palatable. If you’re short on time to cook, embrace the soup: most of these healthy soup recipes can be made in the slow cooker and require little hands-on time if prepared on the stove. These healthy soup recipes can be prepared in a large batch, stored in the fridge, and reheated in individual servings throughout the week.

  1. I love eating soup when it gets chilly out! I need to make a big batch so I can have some to bring to work for lunch. Rob doesn’t like eating soup for dinner- he feels like it’s not a “meal”. I love the fartlek chili from “Run Fast, Eat Slow”!
