20 potato soup recipes for weight loss this fall – do not eat it here

It’s that time of year again – the crisp air just asks you to cuddle up with a blanket and serve a hot cup of steaming soup for a delicious, nutritious meal. There is no better way to warm up and quench your hunger than with a hearty potato soup. In fact, the second most searched soup on Google Trends – after chicken soup – is potato soup.

While potatoes sometimes get a bad rap for being starchy when cooked in low-fat, low-sodium environments, potatoes have plenty of value in a healthy diet. Potatoes are filled with potassium. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), increasing your potassium intake can lower your risk of heart disease by lowering your blood pressure. They are also a good source of vitamin C, which is important for immunity especially during the winter months. So do not shy away from the regular spud, just make sure to cook it in a way that maximizes the benefits. Here are 20 healthy ways to get your potato soup. Plus, if you fancy a quick soup, check out our list of 45+ best soups and chilies to make with Costco Rotisserie Chicken.
