Getting in the right amount of nutrient into your body does not have to be a mundane task, five variety of fruits, and vegetables are the best way of getting your 5 a day. It was an old saying that says an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but the new modern saying is eating 5 variety of fruits and vegetable a day keeps the doctor a way.
What are i’m trying to arrive at? The point is that we sometimes get bored of eating the same fruits and Vegetable so lets switch it up a little bit by turning your favourite vegetables to soup, Yes Soup!
‘Beautiful soup,” sang the Mock Turtle, “so rich, so green, waiting in a hot tureen.” Soup is simple, cheap and nourishing, of course, but it’s more than that. There is something about eating from a spoon that is infinitely pampering, mothering and soothing, and who couldn’t do with a bit more of that? Plus, if you make it right, soup is a great vehicle for packing in your five-a-day vegetable quotient.
