Let them eat….soup!
27th May 2009
I’ve just read this very interesting article about soup and it’s effects on satiety (or the feeling of fullness after eating). It would appear that soup has the fantastic action of keeping us full for longer, especially vegetable soup. The means by which this is achieved is explained in the article and I hope to be able to find some of the research that is mentioned and provide some links. Aside from keeping the hunger pangs at bay vegetable soup will also contribute towards your ’5 a day’ and help you meet the 18g of fibre needed every day. Add some beans or lentils and you’re also increasing the protein content which will help to keep the blood sugar levels balanced, stopping those afternoon cravings!! And my final point about vegetable soup…..it’s cheap, great for a credit crunch lunch!
