One of my favorite winter meals is warm soup. There is something so comforting and snuggly about sipping a warming bowl of soup while the temperatures drop outside. I often make big batches of soup at a time and freeze half of it for later. That guarantees I'll have warm soup even on days when there is little time to cook. Since soup is one of my main dishes during the winter I try to keep it on the lighter side. Heavy, creamy soups are good and all, but those are best kept for treats once in a while. Here are some my favorite everyday skinny winter soups; I hope you like them, too! - By Kelsey Banfield
