This minestrone soup is the perfect comfort meal!

It’s Wednesday, and here’s another soup recipe! These quick all-in-one-pot recipes are my favorite because dishes are not my favorite thing to do. This minestrone soup is not only a one pot meal but also a hearty, healthy and filling one, too.

Minestrone makes an amazing comfort soup, especially when it’s chillier outside. Where I am, it rains pretty often, making soup my go-to very often. It’s important to make soups (like this minestrone soup) that have lots of fresh, local produce so that you get the best benefits available!

Should you avoid BPA cans?

Since this soup has some canned ingredients, let’s talk a little about BPA (bisphenol A). You should definitely look for Organic and BPA-Free cans when buying canned food. Why do you want to avoid BPA? The short answer: it is a chemical which can disrupt your hormones. According to a study by Scientific American, BPA is also linked to the obesity epidemic in children. How scary is that? We as parents should just take action and protect our children and ourselves from this chemical.
