Cold weather or not, soups are always a great idea to pack for lunch! They can be made ahead of time, served for dinner, and the leftovers packed for lunch later in the week. Plus, soup is always better the second day.
In this post, I am going to share with you my family’s favorite soups to bring to school and the office; and therefore, they are my best soups to pack inside a thermos for lunch!
What is the best thermos container for hot soup?
If you want your soup to stay warm, you will NEED a durable thermos container to pack any of these delicious soups or hot lunch. Check out my top thermos picks in the video below to see which one is the right fit for your family.
For nights where you need an easy dinner, this Slow Cooker Veggie Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese Sticks idea will be a mealtime saver.
What I love about today’s recipe is that the slow cooker does all the heavy lifting (cooking) while you go on about your day. Dinner can cook while I run the kids to swim practice, art class, or karate!
As a busy mom to 3 young kids, I appreciate when one of my friends shares with me strategies that work with the kids, especially when it comes to making mealtimes less of a struggle and making sure my kids get enough of the nutrition for the day. This veggie tomato soup is a great way to fill my kids with veggies and giving them something they love at the same time, grilled cheese!
By cutting the grilled cheese into strips and using them as dippers, my kids forget they are eating soup that is loaded with the extra nutrition they need for lunch or dinner.
Warm up with this classic Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup! Let the Crockpot do the work and come home to dinner that’s already done. Easy and delicious!
Soup is one of our favorite dinners to enjoy as a family. There’s just something about a big bowl of soup that’s so comforting and calming after a long day. I love making this Enchilada Soup or a big pot of Paleo Chili, but sometimes I like going back to a classic – chicken noodle soup!
What’s more classic than chicken noodle soup? I swear it cures a cold as soon as it hits! The best thing about this version is that it’s completely made in the Crockpot, which means it cooks while you’re at work or running errands, and it’s done when you get home. A dinner that takes almost zero effort? Win!
If you’re looking to really cut back on preparation time for dinner, have the ingredients delivered to you already chopped and measured! We’re happy to be partnering with FreshRealm to bring healthy, delicious meals right to your doorstep. Get the ingredients for this Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup delivered to you!
The leftover soup makes for a great thermos lunch. That is, if you have any leftovers!
Looking for a new soup to add to your winter meal rotation? Warm your family with the familiar flavors of cumin, chile powder and smoky paprika with this Enchilada Soup Recipe that comes together in minutes.
About this time of the season my soup rotation is feeling a little tired. While chicken noodle, potato and hearty vegetable soups are all favorites, sometimes you just need to mix things up a bit. This Enchilada Soup will do just that. Cumin, chile powder and smoky paprika make it a flavorful soup for the adults, without being too over the top for kids. Finishing it off with your favorite mexican toppings such as shredded cheddar, avocado and fresh pico de gallo make it even more fun.
In addition, this soup is one of those great recipes that tastes even better the next day, making it an excellent thermos lunch! Check out how easy it is to make in this short video below.
