New Year’s Resolution Soup

January 6, 2012

After two months of dessert recipes, I’ve decided to start the new year off virtuously.  Here is a delicious soup recipe that is from Women’s World Magazine and is sure to please everyone.

“Introduced in Woman’s World Magazine (October 3, 2011), issues quickly disappeared from newsstands across the country as determined dieters were ready for a “yummy” soup that’s a perfect meal the whole family will love when Fall nips the air.

Inspired by a study at Penn State that found eating soup can trigger you to consume up to 448 fewer calories per meal, this satisfying soup is an easy go-to recipe to help jumpstart long term weight control.” -Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman
