Winter Soup

There’s no better food in the winter time than a good homemade soup or stew. What you put in it is your choice but the high water content and fresh ingredients will help keep you warm, hydrated and nourished while saving you money. The key to a good soup is adding the right ingredients in the right order. Cooking a large pot allows you to start with raw (and often cheaper) ingredients and spread the finished soup out over several meals throughout the week with just a few minutes of reheating from the fridge. In this episode of Health Nuts we look at Cy’s favorite concoction, a hearty mixture of root and coniferous vegetables, squash, kale and fresh fish. To change up the flavor you can add different herbs like thyme and spices like curry.
