  1. I make this when I'm looking to lose weight quickly. I tried to follow the recipe as close as I could, adding minced garlic and omitting the canned green beans, but adding more celery and carrot. (Ew. Am I the only person who can't stand canned green beans?) I also added basil, oregano, thyme and - Read more ...
  2. I would recommend NOT making alterations to this soup because the purpose of the set recipe is to lose weight. I did lose weight when I made this (it was for a vacation), and it tasted great!! I checked with a local hospital, and they said this recipe is used for overweight patients to get - Read more ...
  3. I've been making this for my boyfriend for about three months now. The only thing I do different is to add ground turkey. He eats a light breakfast of whatever he wants, a light sandwich for lunch and the soup for dinner. He likes to add some heat in the form of Tabasco or different - Read more ...
  4. This is a very good for you and tasty soup, however, when I used to make this some time ago, I also thought that it lacked something or needed a little more flavor. To give it the flavor it needs, I decided an old trick my grandmother use to use in her vegetable soup.....add a - Read more ...
  5. Very good. I used my food processor for most of the chopping, adjusted the seasonings to my personal taste, and simmered for a couple of hours. I froze individual servings and have been bringing it to work for lunch. It's very filling. The only thing I would/will do differently next time is transfer some of - Read more ...
  6. I ate this soup for months when the recipe came out years ago. You have to eat nothing else to lose weight....and I did, about 30 lbs.!! I gave the recipe to everyone at work and they all lost weight too. Besides which, it is an excellent soup (not so much for breakfast as we - Read more ...
  7. First of all, a minor caveat-- I've never had to diet, since I have a pretty fast metabolism, so I can't really compare this to other diets. BUT... Several years ago, I started a new job and found myself sending out for fast food for lunch every day, eating it at my desk. All of - Read more ...
  8. LOVE IT!! ADDED FEW SHAKES OF TEXAS PETE HOT SAUCE AND WORCESTERSHIRE AND LEMON-PEPPER SEASONING. FOR A BURST OF FLAVOR & STILL HEALTHY ADD 1/2LB OF FROZEN,PLAIN (NOT BREADED)OKRA. ALSO, I DIDN'T COOK THE SOUP TOO LONG...THE VEGGIES WERE STILL AL DENTE AND SLIGHTLY CRUNCHY...SO DELICIOUS. NO TROUBLE GETTING YOU DAILY QUOTA OF VEGGIES WITH - Read more ...
  9. The amount of cabbage in this recipe is overpowering. I like cabbage, but this is too much! If I make this again I will likely only use 1/4 the amount of cabbage and add other healthy veggies like squash and zucchini to make up for it. I will also cut the recipe in half as - Read more ...
