Why not Try Souping Instead of Juicing?
Posted in: DIET
Every year, we all hear of a new diet trend; from herbs-based diet, matcha diet to Kelp and home-cooked meals diet. In addition to these types of diets, we've come across a new diet craze that'll surely make things albeit interesting. Say hello to souping, a new liquid diet trend that is quite similar to juicing... but different, in a way.
What is souping?
Souping is actually a more satisfying and delicious method of infusing your body with nutrients that are easy to digest. Just like what the name suggests, this type of diet only involves the consumption of soup; it’s a great way of slimming down a couple of pounds without having to starve yourself.
What are the benefits?
Since soups are essentially delicious and aromatic, you will not find it difficult to infuse this diet into your daily routine. In souping, you only eat a variety of fruit or vegetable-based soups several times in a day. But because the soup is made up of vegetables, it will be able to keep your body nourished and healthy despite “dieting”. You are able to take in fibrous flesh and seeds that your body can recognize, keeping you energized and fortified all throughout.
But the question is, does it help? Since souping entails the consumption of green leafy vegetables while you’re on this type of diet, you are able to rake in many health benefits whilst maintaining a safe and healthy detox routine. However, souping is not intended for long-term dieting. For those who would like to try it out, there is a 3-day cleanse that allows you to eat 1 solid meal per day. Meanwhile, avid dieters should only be on this diet plan for a maximum of 7 days.
Even celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Liz Hurley and Chrissy Teigen are into the whole souping diet trend. When you visit Chrissy’s Instagram account, you might often see her cooking something green and leaf-y in a large vessel.
If you’re up for the souping diet trend, you might want to switch from cream-based soups to broth-based ones in order to avoid consuming saturated fat and calories. Below are some winter delight soup recipes you can try:
This “Broccoli Florentine Bisque” soup is packed with broccoli and spinach and has a lower sodium content in order to satisfy your cravings with something healthy and at the same time delicious.
Cook up this aromatic "Wonton Soup" for that Asian take on your diet.
Overall, souping is a great way to infuse a healthy dose of nourishment, antioxidants and phytochemicals into your body when you use this type of cleansing routine. It may not yield the results you want in an instant such as losing an extreme amount of weight, but you are well on your way to keeping your health in check... one soup at a time.
