I have had my own personal success story with this soup. Trying to lose baby weight and be more healthy I made (combined) my mom & grandma’s tried and true recipe and fell in love. Not only did I loose 10-15 sticky pounds but I also felt great! I was craving to come home and eat  a bowl full of veggies and protein instead of eating greasy fast food.

How does this soup make you lose weight?

Did you know several of our vegetables are basically calorie/carb free? Broth is too,  and by not adding any cheese or creams this soup is basically carb/calorie free BUT it is so full of flavors and spices like garlic and oregano that you eat this eight loss soup feeling completely satisfied until dinner time.

Meal planning can help you loose weight!

I love to meal plan dinners, but I often forget myself. When I meal plan my lunches, by the produce and ingredients necessary I eat much more healthier! a couple times a month I will make myself a big pot of this soup, or a vegetable chili and eat it daily at lunch.

How to make weight loss soup

Start out by browning your meat in a large stock pot. Add garlic and onion and let it sauté until the onions are translucent.

STEP 2: While the meat is cooking, chop all your veggies into bite sized pieces. You can 100 perfect alter these veggies to be what you like. As mentioned above some veggies do have calories like carrots and potatoes. Other veggies like cabbage, zucchini, celery do not have calories.

Step 3: Add your veggies, canned tomatoes, beans, seasonings and broth to the stock pot. Bring everything to a boil and then turn on low and let soup simmer until the veggies are tender. I often use bouillon instead of canned broth, I like that I can add more flavor if desires. This better than bouillon brand is one of my faovrites- I love that it is healthier.

I store in air tight containers and eat it though out the week for lunch! It also sure hits the spot on cool rainy evenings.
