Spicy Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Many will agree - spicy dishes can be pretty flavorful. But that’s not all; eating spicy food can actually help with weight loss. According to a research that was conducted by Purdue University, chilies contain compounds known as capsaicinoids. These compounds reduce cravings for sweet, salty, and fatty foods.

Other studies suggest that capsaicinoids may increase metabolism, which aids the body to burn extra calories. Therefore, if you would like to burn a few pounds, you may consider adding something spicy to your meals every now and then. Of course, if you have a special medical condition or are currently on medication, you’d want to check with your healthcare provider first.

In this recipe, we intend to make something warm and comforting, but not something that will take up much of your time - spicy pumpkin soup! We’ll be using warm spices like cinnamon, curry powder, and ginger to help you beat the winter chill.

Good luck and enjoy!
