As the weather begins to cool down, there’s nothing better than a warm soup to pick you up! Soups are a perfect way to get in lots of veggies, protein and hydration at the same time, especially when you feel like you need a little extra self-care. (See also my blog post on “What to Do When You Feel Under the Weather.”)
