Our warming soups provide big flavor and hefty nutritional benefits for slimming yet satisfying meals all winter long.

Soup Boosters!

Brimming with healthful ingredients, soups are a perfect way to maximize your intake of antioxidants, fiber and other nutrients. Here are just a few star ingredients to take note of.

Cayenne: In addition to its signature kick of heat, cayenne pepper packs numerous benefits including boosting metabolism, reducing inflammation, improving circulation and fighting colds.

Sweet Potato: Sweet potatoes rank lower than regular potatoes on the glycemic index, the measure of how fast carbohydrates in a food affect blood sugar levels. They’re rich in blood pressure–controlling potassium and immune-boosting vitamin C and one of the best sources of carotenoids, which act as antioxidants in the body.

Beet greens: Not only are the greens attached to beets edible, they are delicious and incredibly good for you, too! With a taste similar to that of Swiss chard, beet greens are packed with antioxidants, help detoxify the blood and are rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, vitamin A, copper and manganese.

Onions: Onions may be a commonly found vegetable, but they have off-the-charts nutritional benefits. Onions are anti-carcinogenic, protect the heart and are anti-inflammatory.

Lentils: Lentils are an amazing yet inexpensive source of high-fiber protein. These little legumes also support digestive health and can help regulate blood sugar. Lentils contain iron and folate, both of which are key minerals for transporting oxygen throughout the body.
