When you say "the soup thing", what exactly do you mean? Cabbage soup diet? Having soup with your meals to increase satiety?

Soups are easy and versatile. Search for some online, there are a ton of easy great recipes out there, especially on cooking light dot com. A slow cooker makes it even easier!

I would go with the soup plan. Broth, any veggies you like, spices (I watch the salt); bring to a simmer until veggies are soft. Easy peasy. :)

Sweety, stir fry is your best friend!

You can either use fresh veggies or frozen veggies.

Take some chicken breasts and throw them in some aluminum foil in a pan, season, and cook until they are done. Can put the chicken in the fridge to eat on for several days!

Also, the Morningstar veggie burgers are delicious and easy to prepare. You can also add some cheese and salsa on top without a bun.

Pita bread or flatouts with sauce, turkey pepperoni, and some cheese and seasonings popped into the oven at 400 Fahrenheit for approximately 5-10 minutes is also delicious.

If your scale is not moving, you might want to evaluate your calorie intake. I have been hearing from a lot of people that are plateau'd that they added 100-200 calories a day and started losing. :)

Try sparkrecipes! AWESOME site!

Trying the soup thing tomorrow. Really would like to get below 200 lbs. Try to workout daily but have knee and leg pain so I have to be careful with that. Need advice on how to prepare meat and vegetables for a healthy meal. Not much of a cooker.
