Eat more vegetables with soup!
Vegetable soup is a great way to get more vegetables into your diet without the hassle. When the weather gets colder, its harder to eat a salad than something hot and steamy. I also like to have a pot of vegetable soup in the fridge as a low-calorie and nutritious snack. In a large pot of water, add a variety of your favorite vegetables: I often use cabbage, carrots, peppers, garlic, fennel, squash, fresh herbs - whatever looks good and is on sale. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, and reduce to low until vegetables are soft. Now this is where you can get creative! Garnish with ingredients like salsa, avocado and crushed tortilla chips or parmesan cheese and croutons.
