32 Soup Recipes To Keep You Warm During The Holidays
Happy Saturday…it’s all about soup today on our homestead. Brrrr it’s going to get chilly outside here in North Carolina again and I don’t know about you but I love nothing better than a bowl of hot savory soup during the blustery, wintry days. Soup is not only hearty, warm and tasty but also provides some health benefits that most people don’t even know about! It is recommended that we consume around eight servings of vegetables per day, soups can contribute to that amount. Soups are also filled with vitamins and nutrients and can prevent potential colds. Additionally, soups are filling and don’t have as many calories as a standard lunch or dinner.
Homemade soup is a better choice than canned soup because you risk intake of the chemical BPA, many commercial soups are laden with chemicals and sodium just to name a couple of reasons to steer clear of them when you can. Let’s face it life gets crazy sometimes so it’s not always possible. Here are 30 delicious and homemade recipes from my homesteading friends to get you and your family through the cold and busy holiday season this year!
Let’s get started with a family favorite from our lil’ homestead it’s the most requested soup recipe from my family that I make and it’s chock full of ingredients that promote healing and good health. Chicken broth that most of the time we make from scratch, turmeric, and coconut milk all of which will leave you feeling satisfied and with a sense of well-being. I hope you enjoy it!
