There are a number of benefits to eating soup on a regular basis. It can be prepared beforehand (which actually is better since the flavors can all infuse into the ingredients used), it is quick to warm up when you have a time crunch, and it tends to be very filling, effectively keeping food cravings at bay. So, how can you make it even better? Choose all natural, high protein options.
All natural soups don’t subject you to any ingredients that aren’t good for your body, and high protein is great because it helps you build your muscles which also keeps you healthy and strong. Which ones are the best?
Here are three top options:
- Vegetable Soup with Beans. Mix together a variety of different beans like red kidney and white kidney (which are very high in protein), carrots, celery, zucchini, onions, and even eggplant in an organic chicken or beef stock and you’ll create a soup that satisfies. Add seasonings such as rosemary, thyme, and garlic to give it a little extra zing. Each serving contains approximately 9 grams of protein.
- Chilli. Although some could argue that chilli isn’t really a soup, others consider it to be one, so it is included on this list since it is very high in protein due to the meat and beans it contains. Just be sure to use organic ground beef or turkey so that you don’t get any ingredients that could potentially hurt you. This “soup” tops the charts with just under 30 grams per serving.
- Egg Drop Soup. If you’re looking for something lighter than chilli but still full of protein, you can make your own egg drop soup with organic chicken broth. It will give you around 10 grams of protein per serving without weighing you down.
