Recipe Roundup: Lunch-worthy Soups

Who doesn’t love a steaming bowl of homemade soup for lunch? Soup is a balanced meal in a bowl. You can meal prep it on the weekend and enjoy it during the week, or freeze some and start a stash of soups for upcoming weeks. It’s so convenient to grab a bowl and a spoon and enjoy!

Soup is a wonderful comfort food that can fill you up in the moment (thank you, yummy broth!) but may be lacking the protein you need to keep hunger at bay later in the day. Look for soup recipes that have generous portions of meat or lots of protein-rich legumes like lentils, beans, and peas. Hearty stews and chili will certainly fill you up.

Take the chill off this week by trying one of these warming soup options:

Spicy Ramen Cup of Noodles – this adorable Mason jar concoction uses eggs to rack up protein grams and is a vegetarian soup with a kick. Perfect for chilly days!

Beef and Barley Soup – make this in the slow cooker and enjoy a bowl of savory flavors and whole grain goodness.

Italian Wedding Soup – forget about the mini-meatballs traditionally found in Italian wedding soup, this soup has full-size meatballs to create a filling meal-in-a-bowl for you.
