Grandma Looking Forward...

I am a grandma looking forward to seeing my grandchildren grown and maybe someday holding my great-grandchildren. I presently have 2 grandsons who live within 3 blocks of my house and 2 granddaughters who have been living with me and papa for 7 years. We have 2 grandsons about 11/2 hours away and another grandson in another state. I woke up finally realizing that if I don't make some healthy changes in my life, I may not see these guys graduate from high school. Not acceptable! I have type 2 ...
I am a grandma looking forward to seeing my grandchildren grown and maybe someday holding my great-grandchildren. I presently have 2 grandsons who live within 3 blocks of my house and 2 granddaughters who have been living with me and papa for 7 years. We have 2 grandsons about 11/2 hours away and another grandson in another state. I woke up finally realizing that if I don't make some healthy changes in my life, I may not see these guys graduate from high school. Not acceptable! I have type 2 diabetes (Dec 2009), high blood pressure and high cholesterol (2002 maybe), arthritis in my right hip, asthma, and several allergies. Changes have to be made.

I am looking forward to a healthier me. I am looking forward to many more years to spend with my family. I am looking forward...

2 cans tomatoes
2cans tomato sauce
2 cans tomato paste
2 cans beef broth
1 can chicken broth.
1 can green beans
2 cans baby corn
1 can spinach ( I prefer fresh kale but didnít have any)
Ĺ large cabbage
4 yellow squash
2 large stalks celery
5 carrots
Fill to top of pot with water and bring to a boil and reduce heat and let it simmer for about an hour. Cool and bag for freezer


PS You can put whatever veggies you want and whatever your favorite spices are. I do not use salt. When I eat it I may add some tomato paste or lemon or both for a sharper taste. I may also add some more veggies.
But this soup as I made it today will be between 86 and 95 calories for 3 cups.
Remember . the more things you add when you make it the more calories per cup.

I see you found one of my recipes. Leave out the beans and it will have less calories. I also sometimes add stuff when I eat it.
