Zucchini Yellow Squash Soup - What this recipe name doesn’t tell you is that it’s brimming with fiber-packed cannellini beans. But not just any fiber — cannelinni beans contain resistant starch. When we ingest this type of carb, it passes through the small intestines without being digested, keeping our bellies fuller longer. Replacing just 5 percent of the day’s carbohydrates with a source of resistant starch can boost post-meal fat burn by up to 30 percent!
Autumn Minestrone Soup - What’s better than a hearty vegetable soup to welcome the fall? Not much, we’d say.
