These recipes can be delicious and help us to reach our goals at the same time.

Why is Weight Loss Vegetable Soup So Great?

Weight loss vegetable soup is naturally packed with nutrients, low in calories and makes for a great lunch or a fantastic starter to your dinner. You can serve a huge portion to yourself without worrying about overeating. 

Fortunately, the typical weight loss vegetable soup is not at all difficult to make.  You can make huge batches of it and freeze portions, so you’ll always have some available for whatever meal you’d like it to make.

How to Make Your Weight Loss Vegetable Soup

All weight loss vegetable soup recipes start with a broth.  You can buy pre-made vegetable or chicken broth (opt for the no salt added variety for a healthier option) or, ideally, you can make your own.  Many people are intimidated by the idea of making their own broth, but it’s much simpler than you may think. 

Homemade Broth

The next time you make a dish that has bones (a whole chicken’s carcass is a fantastic option, including cartilage and skin), don’t throw it away, put it into your slow cooker. Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, an onion (chopped roughly. Don’t bother removing the skin), and any herbs you like. This may include parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, savory or others.  Turn on the slow cooker on the low setting for at least 12 hours. When it’s ready, strain the gorgeous broth away from the waste, and you’re all set!


The veggies are what turn it into a soup. Add as much as you want. Great options include onions (sautéed before adding them to the broth), carrots, cabbage, kale, tomato (grape tomatoes are particularly good), celery, asparagus, mushrooms (sautéed before adding), spinach peas, and/or beans.  Most veggies are great in soup. Check what’s in your fridge and unlikely to be used in another dish in the next couple of days, and you’ll probably have a perfect combination for your meal.
