bowl of Robin Khoury's weight loss soupIt’s that time of year again, isn’t it? Time to get serious about our weight! I didn’t do as badly this Christmas as I have been known to do in the past. I didn’t bake my traditional mounds of goodies. (Sorry boys!) I finally admitted to myself that one of the real reasons that I enjoy baking all of that stuff is that I also enjoy eating it! So, one of the keys to weight loss for me is finding good tasting things to make and enjoy. Try this tasty weight loss soup! It is cheap to make and super nutritious. Weight Watchers doesn’t make you count a single point for eating this!

Robin’s Yummy Weight Loss Soup Recipe

Soup Base: Chicken base or boullion, 1 can of diced tomatoes for chili, 1 small can of tomato paste mixed with water, 4 cloves of chopped garlic

Veggies: 1/2 cabbage, 3 carrots, 1 onion, 4 mushrooms, 2 zucchini, 3 celery stalks, (and any other veg that you think sounds good!)

I make this in a big pot, and I start with the pot 1/2 to 3/4 full of water. Add  the boullion to the water and bring it up to a boil. Mix tomato paste with 1 cup of water and add to soup base. (It is easy to mix tomato paste with water if you use a fork.) You can experiment and make this as tomato-y as you like. You can also add some tomato juice or V-8 if you have any around.

While your soup base is getting hot, you can cut up your vegs. Add them all at once. Add the can of diced tomatoes. Bring up to a boil,then turn down and simmer for 30 minutes or until veggies are soft enough to eat, yet still firm.

While the veggies are simmering, sprinkle in some tumeric, salt and pepper, and curry to taste. Eat this soup anytime you need a snack. It stimulates your immune system, the curry and tumeric help ward off alzheimer’s disease, and as I said, it is quite tasty!
