Are you looking to eat better in the New Year? Less convenience food, more whole foods? More vegetables and less processed food?
Perhaps, like me, you have a busy schedule but would like to make a small, lasting change to the way your family eats?
French Soup Recipes
One of my favorite French-girl healthy eating tricks is to always have a pot of soup in the fridge – ready to reheat at a moment’s notice.
This New Year I have decided to become more consistent with my soup making. I realize that I eat much better throughout the week when I have a portion of comforting, delicious soup in the fridge I can reheat at a moment’s notice. Making soup is a great way to get my kids to eat extra vegetables too!
Here are some of my favorite recipes to get you started:
Soup recipes from last year to get you started:
The Goal: Make one pot of soup every Sunday for 4 weeks.
Dates: January 6th-January 27th 2024
Every weekend I will share a soup recipe you can make at home for inspiration. Due to work commitments I won't be able to show up on instagram live every week this year, however I will be sending weekly emails and encouragement.
If you have been reading my blog for a while you know how much I love my soups! I like to make several big batches of soup at once – filling up my freezer with healthy, homemade goodness. You can read the blog post on freezer meal batch cooking here.
I would love to see what soups you are making so please share photos with the #soupsundaychallenge or on the facebook group . I find it so inspiring to see your favorite recipes!
Soups are amazing. Truly. What better way to eat lots of veggies in one serving while reducing food waste in your fridge?
I like that most soups are very quick to make and do not require much culinary precision. Anyone can make soup.
Those carrots that are past their prime or that box of spinach that you had intended to eat at the beginning of the week? Perfect for soup!
Plus, is there anything more comforting than a warm bowl of homemade soup?
You likely have everything you need already, but if you don’t, I highly suggest a good size soup pot for making big batches of soup to portion out.
I have this 10qt Marseille Blue Le Creuset that I love.
Stand Mixers are amazing for making blended soups without the mess of transferring to a blender.
Last but not least, make sure you have some freezer safe food containers ready to portion out your leftover soup to eat throughout the week or stack in your freezer.

ABOUT LE CHEF'S WIFE
Bonjour! I am Anina Belle. I translate the fancy cooking of my Michelin-star trained French Chef Husband, Le Chef, into easy to make dishes that busy people with no culinary training (like me!) can make at home. We have two young kids (6and 3) and I have a full time job in hospitality in addition to this blog. I strongly believe that even busy people deserve to eat well at home.
Look inside our Kitchen with this recent Washington Post Article. We were recently featured on the TODAY SHOW for our recipes of French Onion Soup Gratinée and Moelleux au Chocolat. You can watch our full segment here:
