This soup is perfect.
It’s low sodium, low carb, and delicious. It has so many healthy items in it, your body is getting every major nutrient it needs to work it’s best.
This is one of my favorites. I make it all the time and since there is typically about 5 servings, I will usually make it on Sunday and then I have lunch for almost the entire week!
The flavor is amazing. After I eat it, I literally feel better, no matter what is ailing me. I even feel more alert! With so many vitamins and minerals in one recipe, my body is probably doing a little dance that I am giving it an overload of things that will help it.
I gave the recipe to my mom about 8 months ago. She tried it and said she felt better after eating it too. Did I just find a cure for feeling like crap? I don’t know. Maybe I wouldn’t go that far, but it would be awesome if I did!
I have not succeeded at getting Aaron to eat broccoli yet. I feel I am almost there, because he will eat the rest of the ingredients in this soup, where he wouldn’t before. Hopefully I will succeed soon! Wish me luck!
For right now, unfortunately, he has not tried this recipe because of his anti-broccoli stance. He is definitely missing out.
