If you love traditional cheeseburgers, then you’ll love my Keto Cheeseburger Soup recipe. It contains all of the flavors you know and love from a rich, juicy cheeseburger, only in soup form and minus the carbs.
What do you know about beef? It is a nutrient-rich food that contains 14 essential nutrients – protein, iron, zinc, selenium thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin D, phosphorus, pantothenate, magnesium and potassium – making beef a welcome food in any diet.
Red meat provides taste and energy, supports a growing body, and maintains normal blood cholesterol levels. It is glycemic friendly and can help you with your weight management goals, especially when added to a keto diet.
Moderate consumption of beef fits an overall healthy pattern of eating. Let’s be honest – beef is a superfood, especially if you buy grass-fed meat, which contains higher levels of antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids.
Red vegetables and tomatoes help make red meat taste better. Plus, they provide antioxidant support to counteract any negative side effects of eating red meat. Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene. As such, they reduce risk of heart disease and cancer (*)(*). Plus, they are so delicious!
I guarantee you’ll love the secret ingredient in this recipe – pickles! You can’t have a cheeseburger without them. They provide amazing flavor and pack a potent antioxidant punch to reduce bloating and inflammation.
Other notable ingredients in this low carb cheeseburger soup include mustard, bacon, onions, sour cream, and cheddar cheese. I recommend enjoying this soup hot and sprinkling your favorite low-carb toppings in for extra flavor, such as more bacon, parsley, and cheese.
