Soup's On!

Cutting back on junk and eating healthy has been a test for me. I love to cook and bake. I love to eat what I cook and bake. Switching what I eat during the day has helped me. I eat my big meal for lunch. Usually around 1:00. Then for dinner, it's usually what ever healthy thing I could put together. Lately, it's been soup. I love soup, especially homemade soup. I make my soup with whatever I have in the fridge. Today, I made Ravioli soup.

I started out with 2 cans of low sodium broth, threw in some onions, carrots and celery. Cooked that a bit to get the vegetables tender. Approx 10-15 minutes. Then I spotted the asparagus, had to throw that in there also. Then went in the ravioli. Cooked for approx. 10 minutes more. Done! Perfect with a salad. Light, warm and satisfying. Hit the spot.

For this week, I lost 3 more lbs. For a total of 11lbs since the beginning of January. Have some more to go. One day at a time.

Your soup looks very yummy! I think make soup while cleaning out the fridge works wonderfully! (At least most of the time! )

Great job on the weight loss!
