Souping for Cooler Weather

Soup is a great option when the weather starts to get cooler. It can help raise your internal body temperature, is a relaxing main or side dish, and soothes the soul. 

This recipe, much like the other dishes in Power Souping, is filled with fibrous, nutrient-dense, whole ingredients that you can eat while staying satisfied. 

What are Mung Beans? 

What are mung beans? They’re kind of like lentils: quick-cooking with a flavorful, nutty taste. But don’t let their delicate flavor mask their mighty mung health potentials – these babies are full of all-important protein, fiber, and folate. Plus, they’re packed with phytochemicals that may help protect your cells from damage. Enlighten your taste buds with every spoonful. And since they are healthy and filling, they go great in soups and salads. Hence, why we’re sharing this recipe with you. 

As you may know, the Beller mission is all about forever changing the way people think about the power of food and giving them a simple action plan to feel their amazing best. Enjoy food freedom with clarity and confidence. That doesn’t need to change when the holidays roll around. Mung beans can be a health superhero for this holiday season that you can bring with you into your daily life. Studies show that including them in your diet could potentially lower your cancer risk and assist with weight management and so much more.
