  December 1, 2015  |    Blog>Recipes

Growing up in our mom’s healthy, wholesome household, hearty veggie based soups were a familiar winter dinnertime staple, served with her robust, dense homemade whole grain bread. And our Lentil Vegetable Soup, Green Lentil SoupSweet Potato Soup are all creations inspired by some of our childhood faves, long before the days of becoming registered dietitians and personal trainers and even being aware of all the waist-line benefits of such soups…But now we know that veggie-based soups are a great way to fill up on veggies and curb hunger so that you don’t overeat at your main meal. So we’re always encouraging our clients to opt for them. Most canned soups contain high amounts of fat and sodium, but making your own can be just as easy and much healthier! This Creamy Celery Soup makes a perfect appetizer or snack to serve any time of day. The celery and spinach in this recipe are full of fiber and water that will keep you hydrated and satisfied. During the colder months, it’s easy to forget about the salads of summer and reach for something more warm and comforting, so soups like this one are a great way to sneak more greens into your day!
