“Remember: Shop bought soups are laden with salt, sugar and lack any significant nutritional value. Homemade soups are a great way of incorporating many different vegetables in one meal, a big batch can be made at the weekend and can be used for lunches or dinners for the rest of the week, always make sure you consume a side salad with olive oil or avocado to boost the nutrition content further”
