9 Healthy Soups to Start the New Year

I’m all for a reset every now and then if I’ve gotten myself into some habits that don’t make me feel good.   I have the type of personality that can fall into habits easily, good or bad, but it can be tough for me to break them.  But I don’t plan for any special restrictive diet on January 2.  Yes, I like Prolon (a modifed fast for longevity) and Kroma (a reset), which are both very different from each other but also not “cleanses.” I think the whole idea of a “cleanse” is confusing.  Eating nutritious food is not going to “cleanse” me of past poor eating.  Sweating, going to the bathroom, and a properly functioning liver can help remove toxins from the body.  But instead, I like to start off the year eating food that brings me back to the way I like to feel.  I make a lot of soups at this time of year. I like warm food in the winter and soups are both digestible and filling.  If you’re trying to get out of holiday food mode, try soup for dinner every night for a week! These are some of my favorites and ones that you may have forgotten about:

  1. Super Greens Soup with Lemon-Tarragon Cream A great way to get in loads of greens. It’s delicious with or without the tarragon cream.
  2. Immune-Boosting Soup Some may call this “congee,” and some may not.  All I know is that well-cooked rice and homemade chicken broth are about as easy to digest as you can get.
  3. Yerba Mate Chicken and Cilantro Soup This is a tweak of a Peruvian Soup in Kitchen Matters. It’s a meal in a bowl.
  4. French Onion Soup I might skip the cheesy toast if I’m trying to eat light.
  5. Bieler’s Broth Not a culinary soup in as much as a healing, digestible soup that always makes me feel great.
  6. Thai Coconut Chicken Soup So much flavor, but still light and hearty.
  7. Cauliflower and Roasted Garlic Soup Such a classic and so easy.  Offer some crunchy toppings for texture.
  8. Sweet Potato-Coconut Soup The layering of flavors in this soup are outstanding.
  9. Kale and White Bean Minestrone I had to include this since it might be my family’s favorite soup!

Here are a bunch more tantalizing soups.  If you make any of these soups or any of my recipes, please tag me @pamelasalzman #pamelasalzman so I can see your beautiful creations!

If you would like to try Prolon, you can use this link and the code pamela25 for 10% off (even if they’re running a promotion.) I prefer the Original soups and I have a whole set of tips in my Instagram Highlights.

If you would like to try Kroma, you can use this link and the code PAMELA10 for 10% off.  I think the Signature Reset is totally fine and the Deluxe is not necessary unless you want all the extra stuff.

I come from a large Italian-American family with 28 first cousins (on one side of the family!) where sit-down holiday dinners for 85 people are the norm (how, you might ask – organization! But more on that later …).

Some of my fondest memories are of simple family gatherings, both large and small, with long tables of bowls and platters piled high, the laughter of my cousins echoing and the comfort of tradition warming my soul.
