Eating a healthy, clear soup at the beginning of a meal can help to reduce your total calorie intake in that meal. Soup made with plenty of vegetables can partially fill up your stomach because of the volume and fiber present in vegetables. Warm soup in cold weather also has a feel-good factor. If pepper, garlic or ginger is added to the soup, it also helps open up your airways. But remember that adding cream, whole milk, butter or corn flour can shoot up the calorie value of the soup. So stay with the clear vegetable version.
