Weight Loss Soup – Mexican Style
A while back, I ran into a friend who had lost 40 pounds. He was in a weight loss contest at his work, and was in last place till he discovered this amazing weight loss soup concept! Then he surged to first place! He claimed it was all due to an amazing vegetable soup recipe where you EAT AS MUCH OF IT AS YOU WANT – you feel great and don’t go hungry! Here is the recipe, but I’ve adjusted it a tad making it more flavorful and a bit more healthy. It is a hearty soup FULL of only vegetables. Low fat, high fiber, flavorful and satisfying. Eat it all day long! This is one of the most life changing recipes I have come across.
1/2 CABBAGE Chopped fine
3 Stalks Celery chopped
1 Zucchini Diced
1 Red Pepper chopped
1 Onion chopped
5 Green Onions chopped
2 Cans Green Beans (or fresh grean beans)
1 cup frozen corn
1 Cup butternut squash peeled and diced
2 Cup Chopped Kale
1 Yam diced
1 Cup Chopped Spinach
2 Quarts water
2 8 Ounce Can V8 Juice
4 tbls chili powder
1 tsp cumin
3 tsp Cosco No Salt Herbal Blend
3 tsp Vegetable Boullion*
1. ONIONS & GARLIC: In a large soup pot, add olive oil, minced garlic and onion. Saute till golden brown. About 10 minutes over medium high heat.
2. WATER & VEGGIES: Add water, seasonings and chopped vegetables. Add more water if needed. Simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes or until vegetables have softened up.
3. FINAL SEASONING: Once the soup is cooked, add final seasonings. I then blend about 3 cups of the soup and add back in to make it a bit creamy and thick.
