Soup-er charge your diet for a wealth of body benefits
Butternut squash has just 80kcal in 200g, which provides half of your daily vitamin C needs. It’s also a great source of potassium and magnesium, “two electrolytes most runners are deficient in”, says sports nutritionist Lisa Dorfman. Low-fat coconut milk adds creamy texture and flavour with 60 per cent fewer calories than the full-fat variety. Curry powder contains turmeric, which research shows keeps your joints healthy and protects against arthritis.Make it1 In a blender, combine 600g of cubed, steamed butternut squash, 120ml of low-fat coconut milk, 180ml of chicken stock, one teaspoon of curry powder and a quarter of a teaspoon of salt. 2 Puree until smooth, add more salt to taste and reheat if necessary. Top each bowl with a dollop of plain Greek yoghurt, preferably with a suitably flamboyant at-table flourish.
We have a running club and a soup club at work - perfect combo. Please see our blog for some great energizing soups!
