I bought myself a load of veg and was looking at making my favourite carrot, broccoli and celery juice but it is so cold my thoughts turned to healthy winter soups.
I mentioned I had bought a slow cooker a while ago but haven’t gotten round to using it yet. As it takes so long to cook anything I need to be prepared and I haven’t been. Still, it doesn’t take long to make soup without the slow cooker so that is what I will do for now.
Below are a few videos which contain ideas for healthy winter soups that are quick to make and that focus on health/weight loss.
Magic Diet soup number 3
This will make a great healthy winter soup and was made by Youtuber Tony aka CookingaRound who drinks soups to lose weight. He focuses on low to medium GI foods and this soup is medium GI with carrots and low without
- 2 table spoons olive oil
- 1 medium/large onion
- 1 red pepper diced
- 1 celery
- 2 carrots
- 1 medium-large tomato
- 2 table spoons
- 3/4 spoon paprika
- 1/2 kilo mushrooms
- cover with water
- add fresh ground pepper to taste
- 2 vegetable bouillon stock cubes (low salt)
- 2 tablespoons all white purpose flour
He also has a magic diet soup 1 and 2 if you want to take a look at those.
The second video is also by Tony and is a garlic soup. I love garlic and can imagine me eating this one on a regular basis
This video contains three great soups by Joanna Soh. There are three soups and all the ingredients you will need are included in the video. The soups are:
- Chicken soba soup noodles
- Creamy green monster soup with spinach, leeks and zucchinis (courgettes in the UK)
- Chunky Veggie Barley Soup
The final video in my list of healthy winter soups is one created especially for weight loss made by Robert Khoury.
You can make this as a chunky soup or blend it so its smooth. The ingredients are all included in his YouTube description
As I find more videos I may add them as I want to have a huge variety of different soups to try. From searching for soups on YouTube it seems a number of people use soups to drink and lose weight.
The soups will definitely replace my lunch and maybe sometimes my breakfast but I am not sure that just soup for dinner will be enough for me.
Still I am open to trying anything right now as long as it provides me with something warm in my stomach.
