Soup should never be underestimated. It’s a great way to use up excess veggies and can be eaten all year round for lunch or dinner. Making a big batch of soup and taking it to work is a great way to save money and guarantee healthiness. Feel free to freestyle your own soup with different ingredients. Just use this technique loosely, and you’ll be good to go!
