SOUP BONANZA: Mum makes SIXTY serves of soup for less than $45! Here’s how!

There really is nothing better than a big bowl of delicious, healthy soup on a cold winter night. Not only is soup warm and filling, it can be a great nutritious meal option filled with an abundance of flavour and spices.

The soup combinations you can opt are entirely endless – which is fantastic – as it means you will never get bored!

It’s soup season!

We recently saw long time Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Member Eleanor Hannah take up a kitchen challenge.

Eleanor was determined to find out just how many soups she could make for less than $30. Well, now it seems this mum – Leah Romiti – was also inspired and in effect, took on a similar challenge.

Leah reveals, “With winter now here, I wanted to create some new meals that I hadn’t tried before, in particular soups.

“I jumped on The Healthy Mummy app, typed in ‘SOUP’ and 93 recipes came up! I scrolled through and picked some favourites but I also chose some flavour combinations that I would never have thought of trying before.”

Here’s what Leah made

Leah then chose 15 Healthy Mummy Soups to make. This thrifty mum was on a mission to make as many soups as possible, for as little (money that is) as possible.

Leah spent $44 and was able to make a whopping 60 serves of soups. 

When you break it all down, each of the fifteen soups cost $2.90 to make. Making it 70 cents per serve!

Here is what Leah made:

The soup verdict

Leah reveals, “I have always loved to cook, but The Healthy Mummy has shown me how easy it is to create healthy meals that are simple to make, with minimal ingredients.

I made 15 absolutely incredible, HEALTHY soups. They are all so tasty and my favourites would have to be the ‘Lasagne Soup’, ‘Rosemary Roasted Pumpkin Soup’ and ‘The Sweet Potato Coconut Curry Soup’.”

So how will Leah be storing all these soups?

They will be frozen and kept in the freezer of course!

All of these soups can be frozen. My family and I will have some for lunches and some for dinner.”

Leah’s thoughts on meal prep and weight loss

Leah shares, “My weekly meal prep plays a huge part in my weight loss maintenance.

“Having my meals and snacks prepped each Sunday sets me up for a successful, stress free week.”
