From the Archives: My 5 Favorite Healthy Soups

by Aggies Kitchen on November 10, 2013

Healthy Spinach and White Bean Soup |

Ahhh, soup. It does the body good right? I’ve always loved making soups (what I normally refer to as “detox soups”) on a Sunday that would carry me through the week for healthy lunches and dinners. My “detox soup” recipes are usually vegetable and bean base and occasionally I’ll add in a healthy grain or lean meat like chicken. I haven’t actually cooked up a pot of good soup  in a while and knowing that I’m going to have a few baby pounds to lose in the upcoming months, I am mentally preparing myself for it by looking through some of my archives and pulling some of my most favorite soup recipes that will not only make me feel good, but will also make life easier as far as eating goes with a newborn at home. There’s nothing easier than heating up a bowl of soup for lunch or dinner when you just don’t have the time to cook or have your hands full with other things (or babies… :) ).

Making a big pot of soup only takes about 10-15 minutes as far as prep goes, then once it gets into the pot all is easy peasy. It cooks up in an hour or so and from there my family and I have plenty of healthy bowls of goodness ahead of us. My kids are finally starting to enjoy soup so it’s becoming a great way to get some extra veggies into their growing bodies.

Here are a few of my healthy favorites already featured on Aggie’s Kitchen that you may have missed or forgotten. Enjoy!

Ohhh lots of good ones to try! I am thinking the white bean and quinoa one will have to be first. Those all look perfect for a winter day, or for warming up after being in the cold for a long run!

Thanks for sharing!

They all look so comforting! I’m all about the Hearty Kale, Tomato and White Bean Soup!!

I love good a soup recipe and you are absolutely right… there’s nothing better than rewarming a bowl of soup when you just don’t have the time or want to cook! Each and every one of these soups sounds perfect!


Aggies Kitchen November 12, 2013 at 9:04 am

It’s the easiest meal ever! I am always happy to find some in the fridge, especially at lunchtime.

You are very welcome! :)

I wish I could say I was making soup for that reason :) Though it is supposed to cool down on Wednesday!! Stay warm Lisa…


Gaby November 11, 2013 at 9:37 pm

All of these soups look perfect for fall. I am really craving the white bean and spinach soup!

Rachel Cooks November 12, 2013 at 9:45 pm

Great selections! I need to start making more soup and less mac & cheese…haha!


Aggies Kitchen November 18, 2013 at 10:46 am

Lol! My kids would rather be eating at your house!!


Sommer@ASpicyPerspective November 16, 2013 at 10:20 am

Aggie they all look so good!


Aimee @ Simple Bites November 17, 2013 at 7:28 pm

Seriously so many good ideas here, Aggie. I’m gad I saw this before the week’s menu plan went up…


Nutmeg Nanny November 18, 2013 at 11:51 pm

They all looks so delicious! The slow cooker chicken soup really caught my eye though, yum!!


Maris (In Good Taste) December 16, 2013 at 9:24 pm

I love these! I have been in total soup mode lately. It’s been stereotypically cold in Chicago (I think I’m finally getting that Midwestern winter everyone has warned me about since I moved here four years ago) so I will most definitely be putting one of these to the test!
