4 Nutrient-Packed Soups to Make For Healthy Lunches All Week
For our friends in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s been a long and cold winter. Even here at FMHQ on the Sunshine Coast, we haven’t seen much sunshine this summer. So we can likely all agree that weather like this calls for one thing - warm soups in every flavor.
Soups are easy to make with almost anything at home, for almost any occasion. In fact, one of the best meal prep hacks for winter is making a massive batch with whatever’s on hand, that is guaranteed to last you the week! These 4 nutrient-packed soups are just some of my go-to’s which will be sure to satisfy any tastebuds and I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
1. Ginger Miso Soup
Miso is a fermented food that is often overlooked. It has a strong, salty taste that isn’t for everyone, and being a soy-based product, do ensure you purchase an organic brand. Once you know how to use miso, it is very versatile and can even replace the use of stock powder in many recipes.
2. Tom Kha Soup with Zucchini Noodles
If you find yourself missing soul-warming takeaways, or are looking for a new dish to spice up weeknights, this Tom Kha Soup is your new go-to meal. With the addition of zucchini noodles and a delicious broth, it's a clear winner.
3. Mexican Soup with Nacho Dippers
A hearty Mexican spice tomato soup, with crispy nacho dippers. Top with avocado and a squeeze of zesty lemon to give your mouth the fiesta it deserves!
4. Creamy Ayurvedic Butternut Soup
Here is a beautiful, smooth, warming soup for those chilly winter days. The traditional pumpkin soup takes on a new life of it’s own, with healing ayurvedic spices and a creaminess that can only come from coconut. It’s a fusion of flavors in one delightful, delicious bowl.
Start your week on right by making a big batch of your favorite recipe, so when lunchtime rolls around you’ll be nourishing your body and mind. Otherwise, if you’re feeding the crowds, take it in turns to try a new flavor each day of the week.
