I know I’m not alone in my desires. I think you know what I’m talking about. We all have those desires. Some of us have them stronger than others. Some of us are even shy about admitting them. But they exist … and are stronger than ever in this cabin-fever-filled January month.
We all have that aching desire for a warm, home-cooked meal that will fill us up and still let us fit in our bikinis. That’s what you were thinking too, right? I know. FaveHealthyRecipes’ newest free eCookbook, 11 Easy Soup & Stew Recipes, is a collection of family-friendly recipes that are not only easy to make, they’re low-calorie recipes that will keep you on track with your weight-loss goals.
Starting a meal with a soup or salad is often a healthy idea when trying to lose weight. Soups are often filling and can help with overeating during a main course. Soup recipes often can be tweaked to meet a variety of dietary needs including diabetic-friendly food requirements, gluten-free meals and vegan meals.
Another great reason to dwell in the comfort of soup and stew recipes is for the simple reason of cooking a one pot meal. Knowing you only have clean one pot instead of four or five is a hallelujah moment for any home cook. Finding new recipes for one pot meals can not only help you get through a busy week of work, school and cooking, it can keep you and your family excited about dinner.
Last, but certainly not least, soups and stews are easy freezer meals. Make your soups on Sunday evening, freeze them in baggies and reheat throughout the week. Your weekly cooking can turn into heating up your fresh soup. Talk about time savings!
Soups and stews are great for so many reasons. Download this free eCookbook and you might find that your deepest desires will be met, as well.
