It’s soup season! If you like veggies, you will LOVE this SKINNY Vegetable Soup! I have made this soup a handful of times for my family and it has always been a huge hit. As I shared in a previous post, one of my biggest goals is to use safe products around my home and for my family. But in 2017, we also started eating cleaner. Are we perfect, not at all. But for me, I have been having issues with my stomach and after eating clean (for a few months, for the holidays I made a few exceptions) I am feeling so much better. In 2018, my goal is to personally eat clean for 2 meals each day, and light snacks. The family isn’t always a fan of my clean eating recipes so I plan to still make their favorites and I will have my own meal.
Here is the recipe (courtesy of https://www.spendwithpennies.com/weight-loss-vegetable-soup-recipe/)
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 C diced carrots
4 C chopped cabbage (1/4 head)
1 C green beans (I also use asparagus)

Pepper to taste
