Soup Savvy

January 15th, 2012 No Comments Tags: , , ,

Our temperature took a nose dive. It was Mother Nature’s nudge to find an old boot and a big stock pot and make some soup already! Today I made Mother Dearest’s Beef Barley Soup, posted in the Food Revolution Recipe category some time ago. It’s easier to make than pie and ohhhh soooo yummy.

It’s one of those stealth “weight friendly” foods that helps keep your appetite in check. The literature shows that starting your meal with a steaming bowl of soup helps fill you up leaving you to eat less your main meal. I love this barley soup with a meal or with crusty bread AS a meal. It is one savvy food that’s soothing and satisfying at the same time.

Ahhh soup, what is it about having a big old cauldron bubbling on your stove on a cold winter’s day that’s so soothing. Maybe it helps conjure up past memories of my Mom making some. When I was a kid I used to walk to and from school plus home again for lunch – imagine! I loved having a bowl of soup and a sandwich. When I was done I’d go catch an episode of The Flintstones then would walk back to school!! Those were the days, yes indeed :-)

If you’re still waiting for your nudge from Mother Nature, consider this post yours. Work some soup in your meal repertoire as one stealth way to manage your waistline and connect to the past. Enjoy!
