No matter how healthy you are, and no matter how hard you try to be healthy during the holidays…it’s the holidays, which means the occasional slice of pie and festive cookie will find its way into your diet. It comes as no surprise that we consume more sugar, dairy, and alcohol in November and December than we do any other months. Since beauty if important to us (duh), we wanted to share our little secret on how we stay healthy during the holidays: We drink drinkable soup.
Drinkable soup is a convenient way to load up on vegetables, while cutting back on sugar. Sorry, but that juice cleanse won’t work this time of year. When you’re already consuming so much sugar, adding more sugary drinks—even if the sugar comes from fruit—won’t help you stay healthy. Haven’t you heard about sugar face? The more sugar you consume, the more likely you are to have fine lines, wrinkles, saggy eyes, and pustular, painful pimples. Even your eyebrows can thin from too much sugar. These nutrition tips will help you keep your sugar intake in check.
Drinkable soup isn’t meant to turning into a “souping” cleanse, but it’s just a reliable way to stay healthy and fueled during the busy holiday season. ZÜPA NOMA is our favorite drinkable soup product. ZÜPA NOMA will make sure you get your daily allowance of veggies in just one bottle. We promise after just one sip of creamy goodness, you’ll get over the fact that you’re drinking your soup instead of using a spoon. ZÜPA NOMA’s drinkable soup should be served chilled, making it taste similar to a cold juice beverage—minus all the sugar. The soups are much thicker than juice too, so they will keep you full unlike many juice beverages.
All of ZÜPA NOMA’s soups are made with Certified Organic vegetables harvested at the peak of ripeness, and then seasoned with fresh herbs and superfoods like olive oil, turmeric, ginger, and apple cider vinegar. Each drinkable soup has six servings of veggies, and the soups have less sodium than canned soups. ZÜPA NOMA’s drinkable soups come in a variety of flavors, from Organic Carrot Coconut Lime to Organic Tomato Gazpacho. Our personal favorites? Organic Beet Orange Basil and Organic Cucumber Avocado Fennel.
Keep your sugar intake in check during the holiday season with drinkable soup. ZÜPA NOMA is the perfect place to start.
