Make Homemade Soup

This Sparked Me!

Homemade soup is a great way to have a full meal that is low in calories. I typically use beans, lentils or barley, along with a bunch of veggies, some seasonings, and healthy bullion or stock. Have a salad with it to have an awesome nutrient packed meal! Also, soup is cheap, easy (chop your veggies and stir) and a batch can last a few days.

    you can also make a simple chicken soup with chicken, celery, onions, some salt, a little basil, thyme, and parsley. I just boil it for about an hour in about 5 cups of water and it ends up making what tastes like stock. I usually get four small servings or two big bowls. you can freeze the leftovers to reheat later.
