Easy Weight Loss Vegetable Soup Recipe Calories
The chopping part only took a few minutes. I don’t mind chopping…it’s actually very therapeutic. I had the soup simmering on the stove in about 20 minutes. I calculated the total calories and divided by eight servings or cups. I came up with 65 calories per serving. That is a very rough estimate. If you left out the olive oil and used nonstick spray, the calorie count would be even less.

Favorite weight loss vegetable soup supplies:
Of course, like any soup recipe, you can add your favorite vegetables and leave out what you don’t like. Many recipes include cabbage, which I cannot eat, so I left that out. I don’t include anything from the squash family because those tend to get mushy. Kale seems to be very popular right now so that would be a good addition.
The plan is to have a cup of soup for lunch along with some fruit. If I feel the need for protein, I can add cottage cheese, yogurt or a slice of turkey. I do know how to eat healthy…in fact I am very good at it. My issue is actually making the choice to eat the healthy food over the not-so-healthy food. That is my constant struggle.
