I use the onion soup or vegetable broth and then go from there. I always make sure it has plenty of cabbage. Just remember the nutrition value changes when you use different ingredients.

The beauty of skinny soup is you can make it a million different ways.

I always start with chicken broth and add whatever veggies I'm craving at the time.

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?
