Healthy Diet: Try these light clear soups for when you need to give your system a break
Soups are comforting when the weather begins to be nippy. A bowl of your favourite soup served with freshly baked bread can help you recover from a flu while giving your system the much needed nutrition. But soups aren’t just dishes that help us cope with the flu. Soups are also meals that can help us when we are trying to cut calories or eat light. After consecutive meals comprising unhealthy or fried foods for example, you can make a simple clear soup with some chicken or seafood bits and call it a day. If you are a vegetarian, then some vegetables can be dunked in the soup and enjoyed in the form of a light and healthy meal.
Soups are said to be appetisers as they can whet your appetite before a meal. But they can double up as low-calorie meals as well. Clear soups can serve the purpose well when all you are looking for, is something to fill up on without adding to your calorie budget. They are warm and soothing, and easy to digest and are particularly healthy when you are having a late dinner that requires you to cut carbs.
