Weight Loss Vegetable Soup Recipe

In my quest to lose a few unwanted pounds, again, I am making an effort to eat healthier. Some days it’s fairly easy, while other days it is next to impossible. The one thing that helps me the most is having healthy choices on hand. Clearly this is a no-brainer, but nevertheless, many times I fail at this very simple thing. During my last trip to the grocery store, I stocked up on fruit and vegetables plus a few other items that hopefully will help me get through the day. I also came up with this easy weight loss vegetable soup recipe.

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.

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.
