Fall is here and it’s the perfect time of year for soups, stews, and chili. These dishes can also be an excellent way to include more vegetables in your diet. Vegetables are full of vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber. Soups, stews, and chili are easy to prepare, and can be frozen and consumed later when batch cooking. Making our own soups, stews, and chili also gives us the opportunity to add a variety of herbs and spices to lower the amount of sodium for heart-health. When preparing these at home choose a low-sodium broth and add flavor with a variety of herbs and spices instead of salt, and don’t forget those vegetables! Here are a couple recipes to savor this fall:
