Benefits Of Making Soups For Winter
When someone says soup, the first thing you think of is a comforting, hot meal for those cold winter nights. As well as being hearty and packed full of flavour, the health benefits of soup are well-known.Not only can you pack them with all your favourite vegetables, they are also very easy to make. There are literally thousands of recipes available online for you to try.
Some soups can have more health benefits than others, depending on what you put in it. Here are some suggestions of things you can put in your soups to give you an immune boost, helping the fight against cold and flu, weight gain and blood pressure.
Two almost-essential ingredients are garlic and onions. Known for their benefits as natural antibiotics, even inhaling them while cooking can help blocked sinuses. Garlic especially is anti-fungal and may help in lowering cholesterol.
Another excellent natural antibiotic is ginger. It is especially good for sore throats and aiding in digestive upsets.
The main base for any soup is vegetables. The more variance in colours, the more health benefits you’ll gain from it. Carrots, celery, mushrooms, potato, sweet potato, tomato…the list goes on. Adding herbs can also provide a flavour boost as well as many other health benefits.
