Every year I go back and forth trying to decide which is my favorite season…it truly is a toss up between spring and fall. I love spring with its fresh smells, new life and bright sunny skies; however, fall holds a special place with the crisp air and leaves, crackling fires, and snuggling under blankets with a warm mug of cocoa.

The temps here in South Carolina have finally become a bit chilly and, as a result, it brings the return of soup season and there is nothing than I enjoy more at then end of a long work day than a bowl of comforting, soul (and body) warming healthy soup! 

Reasons why I love a good soup!

•  Warms the soul (and stomach!)
•  Budget friendly
•  Delicious leftovers
•  Chicken soup is known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties, which is great for flu season!
•  Everything all in one pot…less mess for this busy mama to clean!
•  Most can be thrown in the crockpot…another win for this working mama!

Now, although soup is one of the best comfort foods there is that doesn’t mean it has to have the stigma of sticking to the ribs and never leaving 😉 There are an abundance of healthy, yet absolutely delicious recipes that can keep you going strong on your journey to health and fitness.

Trim Healthy Mama Soups

Trim Healthy Mama is a way of eating that many have had great success with. Basically you separate eating your fats and carbs. You will always have a good source of protein and veggies in your meal, but you will alternate between complimenting that meal with a fat/satisfying source (S) or a carb/fuel source (E). The reason for this is that it helps your body to more quickly burn through what you’re eating (turning your food into the energy your body uses to run), rather than having to work through processing both fats and carbs (which usually cannot all be burned through and are thus stored as excess fat). Generally you should try to wait 3 hours between eating a satisfying (fat focused meal) and an energizing (carb focused meal).

•  Sweet Potato Bisque (E)
•  Bacon Tomato Soup (S)
•  Turkey Pot Pie Chowder (S)
•  Spicy Bean Soup (E)
•  Chicken Gnocchi Soup (S)
•  Taco Soup (S)
•  Cream of Broccoli (S)
