Start your meals with liquid: you may have noticed that a lot of my LeBootCamp meal suggestions begin with a drink, a boost or a soup. Indeed, starting your meal with a liquid helps you fill up more quickly and thus eat smaller portions during the rest of your meal.
Smart, hey? Soup provides a maximum of energy with a minimum of calories!
A tasty blend of vegetables, aromatic herbs and spices, soups are a real pleasure for your taste buds…and for your waistline! What’s more: minimum preparation, maximum pleasure!
Rich in fiber, soups satisfy you right from the beginning of the meal while providing vitamins and antioxidants which are essential to the proper functioning of our body.
Hot, cold, spicy, detoxifying, or sweet, you can enjoy soups all year round!
Winter soups are obvious, but what about summertime?
In warm weather seasons, we need to stay well hydrated. Here’s when soup, with 90% water content, can be your perfect ally against dehydration! For maximum freshness opt for cold soups like cucumber soup and melon soup, and of course all types of gazpachos.
Get creative and make your soups unique! Add interesting herbs, dried fruit, new spices, vermicelli, wild mushrooms…the options are endless!
