Summer, the Season of… Cold Soups

11 July, 2014 , ,

Sure, a nice hot soup is comforting when it’s cold outside, but on hot summer days too, a cold or even chilled soup is hugely welcome, because it will both refresh us and quench our thirst. For soup provides a significant amount of water, something that we don’t often drink enough of.

And the best part is, making soup is very easy and inexpensive and since it allows us to consume a fair amount of vegetables, we stand to benefit from the healthy goodness of these precious foods. And finally, since it contains relatively few calories compared to its volume, soup is ideal for anyone who wants to lose weight.
