For many of us, winter is far from over. Whether you’re a fan of the cold or not, we can all agree that nothing warms us up quite like a bowl of homemade soup. With many more cold days to go, here are eight soups to keep you cozy, satisfied, and nourished this winter. All of these recipes are vegan and loaded with at least two servings of fruits and vegetables – perfect for getting your five a day!
If you’re looking for something that’ll warm you up from the inside out, these soups have got you covered! Need something heartier? Add lean protein like chickpeas, beans, chicken or turkey breast, quinoa or seitan. Just a ¼ to ½ cup of cooked beans or 2 to 3 ounces of animal protein can boost your metabolism and help you recover from your winter workouts. Change things up by trying a new recipe each week, and before you know it, you’ll be transitioning into your spring wardrobe with a fitter, slimmer you!
