Heavenly Potato Soup Recipes
Indulge in Their Creamy Comfort

Potato soup recipes offer creamy comfort and nutritious goodness in every delicious bowl. 


The Health
Benefits of Potatoes


You may have been led to believe that regular potatoes, meaning not sweet potatoes, should not be part of a healthy diet. But eating potatoes can and should be part of a well-balanced, nutrient-dense diet.


Because it takes longer for the body to digest and break down their molecules, they help us feel full longer, plus give us energy and a feeling of satisfaction. And that satisfied feeling is what we must experience if our efforts to eat less are going to last.

Potatoes contain minerals, vitamins, and powerful plant chemicals which provide great health benefits. Using potatoes in soups alongside other vegetables, lean protein, or high-quality dairy is one of the best ways to reap the nutrients they offer.

 

Benefits of High-Quality Dairy Products

And when potato soup recipes are made with high-quality dairy products, they are great for bone health, heart health, and even helping one achieve a healthy weight.

It is the increased amounts of calcium and vitamin D found in cheese which contribute to improved bone and heart health. 

And a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that milk and other dairy products may help us get rid of unwanted weight.


Natural Cheese Provides Powerful Health Protection

Natural cheese, which is made with only four basic ingredients, is an excellent source of several important nutrients. 


Working synergistically, three of these very important nutrients (vitamin K2, vitamin D3, and calcium) provide powerful protection for the health of your bones, brain, and heart.
