Can Eating Soup Help With Weight Loss?

Leaves are golden and falling and there’s a bite in the air that’s chilly but also cozy in its familiarity. Mittens are making their way out of storage, Starbucks holiday cups have arrived, and more than anything this is all a sure sign of one key arrival: soup season. It’s officially upon us.

We know and love soup season for all of its traditionally fall markers, but when you dig in beyond the simple joy of eating something hot on a cold day, there’s a lot of nutritional value to explore.
