Other benefits of these healthy soup recipes
In addition to being healthy and delicious, many of these recipes are one-pot-meals, which means clean up will be a breeze.
If you don’t want to be chained to the stove, most of these can be made in a crock pot. It just makes sense to let dinner cook while you work, run errands, or simply get things done around the house. Then, when you get home, the house will smell fabulous, and dinner is ready.
Slow cooker soup recipes rule!
InstantPots are great too, but sometimes you just want the meal to cook slowly over a long period of time when you’re not going to be home.
Now break out those stock pots and slow cookers, because we’ve got some amazing low calorie soup recipes to share with you!
