Carrying on with my health kick, I made a delicious Mexican soup with guacamole and topped it with prawns as my protein.
This soup will cost you around £8 and serves four people. Rather than using salt to give it flavour, I used chilli and smoked paprika. It not only gives the soup a huge kick, the spice speeds up your metabolism.
Now I know I haven’t created a traditional guacamole recipe but this is the healthy version that your post-workout body will love you for. Why you ask? Because tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which helps protect your muscles from aches.
I 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.
Heat the onion, garlic, pumpkin and sweet potato in a large pot over medium heat
Once the vegetables are browned, pour the water and chicken stock into the pot
When the pumpkin and sweet potato are soft add the spinach before blitzing the ingredients in a blender
If you like your soup more runny feel free to add more water, I personally prefer it thick and chunky
