Homemade Soup Recipes from
Mama's Kitchen to Yours

Use these homemade soup recipes to make healthy meals that help with weight loss. It’s simpler than you think.

With Mama’s handed down recipes, get dinner on the table quickly and easily.

My Mom is the expert soup maker in the family and these homemade recipes were passed down starting with Great Grandma.   

I'm proud to say that's my Mom in the picture below.

Mama’s homemade soups were first created during the times where fast food or canned foods didn't exist. When soups were made with the wholesome vegetables and meats you had on hand.

That’s what makes them so special.

My Mom Cooking Soup

People always say I love homemade soup recipes, but aren't they time consuming and hard to make?

Not at all, Mama will show you how.

Soups were always considered a necessity. After all, they provide fiber, vitamins and nutrients. They are also high in water content and low in calories.

With all the food changes that have developed in the last couple of generations it is sure a heck of a lot easier to put on the pounds. Food has become faster, unhealthier and processed to death.

But my Mom was great because if anyone in the family started putting on the pounds, she started making more and more soup. And yes the pounds started to come off.

No one should be denied a bowl of the good stuff, so check out the recipes below that provide the know-how on how to whip together a healthy pot of homemade soup.

What's Your Favorite Homemade Soup?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a page dedicated to your very own homemade soup creation?

On this page called Mama’s Soup we share with visitors a few recipes that my Mom and Grandmother used when they had to slim down the family, which was quite often as none of us were born with the skinny gene.

The belief is all homemade soups were not only delicious, healthy and dietary but a necessity if you want to prevent weight gain.

But we only have a few recipes to share which doesn’t provide a whole lot of variety and help for our visitors.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could create a collection of homemade soup recipes, your recipes, with each worthy recipe having its own featured website page?

So if you have a creative flare and a recipe worth sharing we would love to hear from you.
