It’s so easy to make your own soup—and once you do, you will wonder why you ever ate the salty, canned concoctions. When I'm at home, I make soup every weekend. Having a large pot of soup in the fridge ensures that I'll have access to a nutritious meal even when I'm too tired to cook.
To make easy, nutritious soup even simpler, I've made a handy infographic—The Fuhrman Formula for Making the Perfect Soup—which lists the six main components: Base, Greens, Allium (garlic/onions), Vegetables, Seasoning, and Beans. There are mix-and-match suggestions for ingredients that let you customize the soup to your heart’s content. And speaking of hearts, each of these six components adds to the health benefits of the soup.
