Soup can be one of the best meals. Not only can it be an all-in-one meal, but it can make you healthier! A study by Iowa State University found that eating soup was tied to a lower body-mass index, smaller waist circumference, and a reduced risk of being overweight. People who eat soup also usually get more servings of vegetables in their diet.
January is a great time to enjoy your favorite soups and try some new recipes as well. NOAH’s Nutrition Services Team has a number of delicious, nutritious, and comforting soups to enjoy all year!
