Healthy Weight Loss-Legumes!


So who says you can’t eat great tasting food and look and feel wonderful? One of my passions is to explore nutrition dense foods that support healthy weight loss and promote good health. Here is my recipe for a delicious soup for weight loss paired with nutrition…not to mention an enjoyable meal!

Northern white beans are referred to as ‘white legumes’ and are an important food group for nutrition, weight loss, digestive health, sugar regulation, and to lower your cholesterol.

Legumes provide the body with good fats such as omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and vitamins. They are a rich mineral source with potassium, magnesium, and zinc. As far as getting a meal for your digestive health, my Divine Northern Bean Soup provides both types of fiber!

According to Harvard School of Public Health soluble fiber binds to fatty substances in the intestines and carries them out as a waste, thus lowering bad cholesterol. It also helps regulate the body’s use of sugars, helping to keep hunger and blood sugar in check.

Enjoy your health!
