What should you serve with Low-Carb Cabbage Soup?
A side salad.
Soup and salad are the perfect combination on a cozy evening at home.
Why soup is so good for you:
1) Nutrient dense meal.
When you normally cook vegetables in water, the water is thrown away – tossing a lot of the nutrients with them.
When you make soup, all the vitamins and minerals stay in the broth and make their way into your very happy stomach.
2) Hydrates you.
Most soups have a high water content, and we could all use more water – don’t you think?
The water content creates a filling meal, helping to ensure you don’t crave additional unwanted calories.
3) Sneak in vegetables.
For those members of your family that aren’t big fans of vegetables, soup is an easy way to make sure they get more in their diets.
4) Comforting meal.
On a cold, winter night nothing beats a bowl of soup to warm you up and bring a bit of coziness to the evening.
The same can be said about cold soups for summer. I love making cold soups on a hot summer day to avoid the heat of cooking and cool me down.
5) Easy Peasy.
Soups are one of the easiest meals to make. Whether you use a slow cooker or stovetop – most soups are just chopping a few ingredients and letting time meld the flavors together.
6) Inexpensive meal.
Most soups are an inexpensive option for creating a delicious meal. Depending what type soup you make, using chicken stock you make yourself and being composed of primarily vegetables, soups can be good on the wallet.
