WEIGHT WATCHERS ZERO POINTS SOUP, OUR WAY
WW zero points soup is so useful when you are watching your weight. Make a big batch and have it ready whenever you get hungry for a snack or as lunch or dinner. Now you might be thinking, how boring it would be to eat the same soup over and over and this is where my idea comes in. Change it each time by adding new ingredients per serving. Add a dash of hot pepper sauce one time and a squeeze of lemon or lime another time. I will start with the add in items and the points for each of them and then we will get to the recipe for the soup which I have changed but only in preparation not in in points!
Soup Recipe: (I usually double/triple this to make enough for one week of lunches)
2/3 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup chopped onions
2 garlic cloves
3 cups fat free broth (veggie, chicken or beef) (for fat free chicken stock from our recipe but in frig and remove fat from top, because we prepare without skin you will not find much fat to remove.)
1 1/2 cups diced cabbage green or purple (if you don't like cabbage add less)
1/2 cup green beans
1/2 cup zucchini (I use half zucchini-half mexican squash)
1 teaspoon tomato paste - we do not use canned ingredients so I changed to
1 roasted tomato (per teaspoon of what would have been paste)
1/2 t dried basil
1/4 t oregano and salt
In roasting pan place carrots, garlic, cabbage, green beans, tomatoes -sprinkle with basil, oregano and salt. Roast on 400 for 45 min.
In soup pot, saute onion on low (no oil) add broth and a dash or basil, oregano and salt. Cook broth on low while waiting for roasted veggies to be done. Add zucchini to broth and all the roasted vegetables, cook on low for about 4 minutes until zucchini are al dente.
Serve and enjoy your soup and your trimmer waistline!
Make a healthy choice, meal to meal, day to day and you will be in control of your weight and your life. Be strong, you are worth it!
Remember "You ARE Worth It" Keep up the good work, week by week, day by day
