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 is not only a one pot meal but also a hearty, healthy and filling one, too.
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.
