In wintertime, there is nothing like a hot soup to warm us from the inside out. But our love of soup goes far beyond its warmth. Soup is nutrition in a bowl. It isn’t just the ingredients of a soup which make it so nutritious.Many nutrients are water soluble, so boiling them and tossing the water means we are tossing the nutrients too. When you eat soup, the liquid retains many of the nutrients which have leached out.Since soup is “predigested,” it is also easier for your body to absorb the nutrients in the ingredients.

 

Soup makes your kitchen smell wonderful.

This is part of the reason why soup is such a comfort food and we associate it with love and home.

Soup helps clear our sinuses and respiratory tracts.

The vapors coming off soup and its warmth are scientifically proven to increase “nasal mucus velocity,” one more reason why it is great to eat when you have a cold.

Soup is easy to make.

It doesn’t take much skill or effort to make most soups.Most recipes are easily adaptable, so go ahead and throw in whatever you have leftover in your refrigerator. You can even make soup out of the scraps you normally throw away, like broccoli stalks or celery leaves.

Soup helps you lose weight.

Since the soup is so nutritious and filling, you feel satiated much faster. Studies have even shown that eating soup before a meal decreases caloric consumption by about 20%. If you’re trying to lose weight, go ahead and indulge in some soup.
