Warming Soups to Get You through the Winter
Winter is the perfect time to enjoy a hot, steamy bowl of soup.

But, you want to watch out for soups that are full of fat or processed ingredients.

Liz Weiss is a registered dietitian and one-half of The Meal Makeover Moms (the other half being Janice Newell Bissex). These two moms aim to build recipes that are easy to make, appeal to kids, and make mealtime less stressful for parents.

Liz joins Naturally Savvy host, Lisa Davis, to share more about The Meal Makeover Moms, as well as simple recipes for healthy soups like Slow Cooker Barley & Bean Soup, Creamless Cream of Broccoli Soup, and Sweet Potato & Chicken Soup.

She also briefly discusses the phenomenal health benefits of bone broth, which can be both nutritious and delicious.
