To celebrate National Soup Day, we wanted to highlight our newest addition to the line, white bean soup. All of sweetgreen’s soups are made in-house with fresh, nutritious ingredients. February’s soup brings lots of vitamins essential to staying healthy during these cold winter months. Check out what these soup-er foods can do for you!
White Beans: high in fiber and protein, these legumes will help keep you feeling full, without feeling heavy. The high content of vitamin E provides essential antioxidants, while vitamin B6 helps your metabolism function at a healthy pace.
Carrots: we all know that eating carrots maintains your eyesight, but did you know that they’re also high in fiber and antioxidants? Carrots are loaded with natural sugars, so we can add just the right amount of sweetness without having to add the real deal.
Garlic: add spice without adding calories or fat! Garlic is not only full of flavor, but it is also said to promote your cardiovascular and antibacterial systems. Plus, it aids in digestion, so eat up!
Roasted Sweet Potatoes: compared to your average potato, the sweet version is significantly higher in complex carbohydrates, protein and calcium. Further enhance your vision with high amounts of beta carotene and stay full for longer with lots of fiber.
Kale: as if we couldn’t stress it enough in our infographic, kale provides almost all of your daily need of vitamins A, C and K. It’s beneficial for your eyes, bones and cholesterol, and it’s just plain delicious!
