Making soups is easy, fun, and can save a lot of time in the kitchen since they double as additional mess-free meals throughout the week and can be packed for an easy lunch.
So in today’s blog, I’m offering you the master list of skinny soups, along with the grocery list and my picks for the best storage containers.
Reserve an hour this weekend to go through your pantry. Check dates, wipe down shelves, and take stock of what you already have before digging into the grocery list.

Ziploc Twist ‘n Loc: This is my #1 pick for soup storage. Inexpensive, leak resistant, these babies are a must for the soup connoisseur! Not only are they good for chunky soups, but I’ve even stored juice in them, in my travel bag.
OXO Rectangle, 9 cups: These snap and lock, hearty containers are durable, stand-by storage for large batches of soup that will live in your fridge before you break them down for smaller portions. They are worth the small investment to have containers that not only do well in any dishwasher but also stack fit extremely well in your fridge.
