Soup is one of the healthiest meals you can eat. One study at the University of Boston showed that eating cold tomato soup, for example, dramatically increases vitamin C levels and reduces stress. Soup is a particularly good meal when the weather starts to turn cold because it’s easy to store and can be heated up in five minutes, making it a handy option after a long day at work.

Most energy-dense foods are typically high in calories and low in nutrients. Not so with soup. One of the best things about it is its low fat / high nutrient content. Soups are full of vitamins and minerals while low in solid fats, sugars and processed starches. Eating lots of soup is a great way to stock up on key nutrients without excessive calorie intake.

Another study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that people who eat soup tend to weigh less and have smaller waists than non-soup eaters, meaning eating more soup can reduce the risk of obesity. Surveys carried out between 2003 and 2008 found that soup eaters tended to have better overall eating habits with higher intake of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.

The number of soup flavors is endless, so it’s easy to find a combination that tastes great to you. Soup is also a great way to use leftovers. Don’t be put off by complicated cooking instructions! Soup is one of the easiest meals to make once you know how. You can literally use whatever’s in your kitchen, and still make a great soup. Add hemp protein to any soup ramps up its nutrient and protein value.

Hemp Pumpkin Soup

Because soup is such a versatile and nutrient-rich dish, it’s a recipe we’ll be coming back to again, and again, but we’re kicking off with Hemp Pumpkin Soup because autumn has begun and pumpkins are in season. We encourage you to use in-season vegetables to ensure you get the most nutrients from your soup. That doesn’t mean soup is just a hot dish for cold weather. Summer soups, usually cold, are equally rich in nutrients and easy to make. Watch this space for lots of hot and cold soup ideas!
