8 Healthy Pumpkin Soup Recipes

It’s that time of year when many of us are in the market for healthy pumpkin soup recipes!

I’m a big soup lover and am always adding to my collection of  easy healthy soup recipes.

Soups are a delicious, healthy way to satisfy your hunger with minimal fat and calories.

And healthy pumpkin soup recipes made from either fresh or canned pumpkin are a great example.

Pumpkin is full of vitamins, minerals and fiber. (Of course, you realize, I’m not talking about fattening cream based soups and chowders here!)

Did you know that people who start a meal with soup tend to weigh less?

So, if you’re trying to lose weight or stay slim, choose soup as a healthy first course, snack, lunch or dinner as often as you can. Why not make a large batch of one of these easy low calorie healthy pumpkin soup recipes and then freeze it in single servings that you can heat up later when you need something in a hurry?
