£5.00 Pumpkin and spinach soup

pumpkin soupI made this delicious and extremely healthy soup for just under £5.00! So next time it gets close to pay day and you’re reaching for a seven pack of ramen noodles, go and buy these 5 ingredients instead. 

Now, if you want to hear why your body will benefit from this soup recipe it’s because it’s low calorie and leaves you feeling fuller for longer. 

But before you start grabbing every soup in the aisle like you’re playing supermarket sweep, don’t forget that not all soup is the same. Canned soup has higher sodium than freshly made and creamy soups like clam chowder are around 200 calories per cup. 

This week on The Lifestyle Directory is soup week so get ready for more original recipes that will help you get closer to that summer body goal. 

Tip: If you want to be extra healthy, add some chilli into your soup because spicy foods help kick start your metabolic rate. pumpkin soup
