Ten Favorite Summer Soups

Soup is one of my most powerful weight-loss secrets. It fills you up without weighing you down—and because it satisfies your hunger, it helps you eat up to 20% less and still feel just as full. Translation: pain-free slimming! And here’s another great thing about soup: It’s not just for winter.

In fact, I put soup on my table just about every day during the warm summer months. It’s the perfect way to take advantage of the bounty from my farmers’ market, whether I’ve bought sun-ripened tomatoes and beautiful bell peppers or sweet watermelon and spicy basil. Better yet, soup is so healthy—especially when it’s rich in fat-melting, wrinkle-blasting bone broth. (It’s easy to make your own broth—or, if you’re in a hurry, use my ready-to-go beef or chicken bone broth or instant collagen broth.)

Add in the vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients from those glorious fruits and veggies, and you have a perfect prescription for good health, weight loss, and anti-aging. Want more? Soup is versatile, too. You can eat it for breakfast, serve it as an appetizer before dinner, or take some to work in a thermos for lunch. You can dress it up for company, or keep it simple for family. And you can play around with your ingredients, so each pot of soup is a brand-new experience.   To help you get in the summer soup habit, I’m sharing ten of my favorite recipes in my FREE new ebook. In it, you’ll find everything from Szechwan Carrot Ginger Soup to my Avocado Soup with Smokey Chipotle Adobo. Click here to get your copy, and start “souping up” your summer!
