fall soup recipes

When it starts getting chilly outside, you know that fall is in the air. And with fall comes comfort food … lots of it.

Think stews, casseroles, and my favorite – soups.

But many soups can seem healthy on the outside. But when you look closely, they’re not so good.

That’s because they’re packed with saturated fats and calories. So, if you indulge in them, you pack on extra pounds.

That’s why I’m sharing 27 Healthy Fall Soup Recipes. They’ll not only warm you up but keep you on track with your healthy lifestyle.

To keep your soup nice, and fresh be sure to store it in airtight containers. I stick with glass containers like these.

That’s because they tend to keep food fresh longer than, say, plastic. They’re also ecologically friendly.

However, if you’re not a big fan of glass containers, BPA-free plastic containers like this are a great alternative.

Many people are incorporating more plant-based meals. And for lots of reasons.

Eating more plant-based meals can help the environment. And it also has health benefits.

However, many plant-based dishes have tons of ingredients. This makes plant-based eating so much harder.

This Easy Ginger Spinach Soup simplifies plant-based eating. It contains only 7 ingredients (if you don’t count the salt).

But best of all, it’s full of flavor. The ginger adds heat, while the garlic and onion powder add savory.

Meanwhile, the coconut milk makes this soup nice and creamy.

Besides being delicious, this soup is nutritious too. It is packed with potassium which is essential for healthy blood pressure.

And it is rich in Vitamins A and C, which are good for your immune system.

To make this soup silky smooth, you’re going to be blending the soup. To keep it safe, don’t put it in a regular blender.

That’s because the soup can explode. Instead, it’s best to use an immersion blender like this.
