The cool weather is coming and soup season will soon be here!  I love soup for so many reasons. It’s not only good for the soul but research actually shows that eating a small bowl of healthy vegetable soup like this one, will actually make you feel fuller and help you eat less overall.  That’s good news for many who are trying to slim down and take control of their calorie intake.

I’ve never been happier to sit at my computer and type then I am today!

Let’s get back…

I picked up these…
