500 Calorie Dinners: Soups

If you're trying to feel full on fewer calories, learn to love soups.

Research has shown that people who start a meal with soup eat 20 percent fewer calories over the course of their meal. But don't just think of soup as a starter. These hearty soups include beans, chicken, fish or lean beef so they're substantial enough to be a main course. Browse through these soup recipes to choose your main dish, then pick from the suggested side dishes, desserts or drinks to round out your 500-calorie meal.
