Do you sometimes have days where all you feel like is bowl of soup for your lunch or dinner? I definitely do, but especially because I know it really can be a balanced bowl of goodness filled with veggies and protein and packed full of vitamins and antioxidants. So leave the tinned soups on the supermarket shelves and make yourself a delicious bowl of yum!
