I keep a zip lock freezer bag in my freezer that I am adding veggies to each day. If I have a 1/4 cup of green beans left over from dinner,etc. I add to the soup bag. I do this with every veggie, bean, celery leaf, etc. When I'm craving a pot of homemade soup I already have enough ingredients and also do not waste any food during the week. I accumulate and keep frozen until ready to use. This works well for 1-2 person households that have a little left after each meal but not a serving size.

We've been frequenting farm markets and farm stands. We've recently purchased a farm share as well. What we've been doing aside from enjoying all the yummy fresh produce is jarring and preserving parts of the share.
Sometimes it a soup, other times a jam or jelly and we are even just preserving it either pickled or a hot pack. If you are into jarring, then definitely give it a try.
Some soups help you feel more satiated, make you eat less, avoid blood sugar and insulin spikes, target belly fat & burn more fat. Try Beef Barley, Lentil soup, Black Bean Soup, tart cherry soup, chili, chicken soup with barley, HAM AND BEAN, Eating foods like cooked carrots, broccoli or cauliflower can provide you with up to three to five grams of fiber SO TRY VEGGIE SOUP.
Soup is a blank canvas - capable of leaping across tables and cookbooks in a single bound to rescue you from hunger. To prevent myself from making gallons of cream-based soups, I tell myself that VEGETABLE Soup is a blank canvas. And in thinking about it, it truly is! Chicken soup is vegetable soup with chicken. Gazpacho is a vegetable soup served cold. The possibilities are endless and the combinations are oh-so delicious! 481
