Low Fat Healthy Soup recipe
Low Fat Healthy Soup Recipe
Soups are our winter-time best friend.
Yes, best friend!!! It is a one-pot wonder soups are warm, comforting, and filling, and we can easily make large quantities at once that we can re-heat throughout the week or freeze for the next busy day. But for real guys, tricks like soup are what help us stay on track for our goals during those hectic days where it just doesn’t seem feasible. It takes less time to take the soup out of your fridge and reheat than to stop at Mickie D’s for a Big Mac! And you don’t have to venture out into the cold to do it.
The recipe below is a low fat, hearty soup packed with vegetables, has only EIGHT ingredients, and is very simple to make!
This soup is very customizable. For instance, add chicken or beef to increase protein. Swap out the vegetables for others that you enjoy more. Don’t like quinoa? Then use rice or barely.
It is bodhi approved and Coach Chelsea made-and-taste-tested. Give it a try and let me know what us think! 🙂
