Easy & Tasty Vegetarian Soup Recipes For a Healthy You

3 min read 

Vegetarians don’t have it easy. At a restaurant with a group of people, there is at least one comment (disguised as a question) that comes their way – Are you really a vegetarian?! So you don’t even have eggs?

Some people are vegetarians because of spiritual reasons, others go vegetarian to help the environment. But today there is something else that is driving people to a vegetarian diet and that is health. Studies have shown that vegetarians have lower incidence of coronary diseases, some forms of cancer and obesity. The missing protein can be compensated by a lot of food groups, but in case of non vegetarians the intake of proteins may go over board very easily. Vegetarians tend to eat proportionately right and eat polyunsaturated fats instead of the harmful more saturated fat. Whatever be the answer to the question asked by the non vegetarian at the table, the reason behind the choice is quite simple.

Having a healthy and hearty soup at the beginning of a meal can be a great start. The varied ingredients in classic soup recipes can be extremely healthy.
