Days 5 & 6 of Get Healthy

Yesterday was pretty uneventful. Today is shaping-up to be the same. I did make a great veggie soup last night for dinner. Here's the recipe:

Veggie Soup

2-cans vegetable broth
1-can chicken broth (If you don't want chicken broth, use another can of vegetable broth)
1-cup water
2-3 vegetable bullion cubes
1-can (or fresh) green beans drained
1-can navy or black beans drained
10-baby carrots diced or sliced
2-celery stalks
1/3-jalapeno sliced thin (optional)
1/2-yellow bell pepper (or green)
2-tablespoons dried Italian herbs
pepper to taste

Add broth and water to pot and all ingredients except for zucchini. Bring to a boil and simmer until carrots are tender. Add zucchini and cook for an additional 5-8 minutes. Until zucchini is tender, but not mushy.

This is the second time I made veggie soup this week. It's really tasty and easy to make. You can add any other veggies or substitute. The first time I used navy beans and the second I used black beans. Generally, I season "to-taste." You may want less bullion cubes, more water, etc.

I had one bowl and when I later went back to get's what my husband left for me:

I guess he liked it :)

I love veggies and what better way to enjoy them than soup? That is a recipe I'm going to give a whirl. You know whose soup is yummy? Don't laugh--Richard Simmon's veg soup. It has barley it it. Yum!! My Nana makes it for me. I always make sure to put some in the freezer. Your husband liking veggies is awesome. Mine will only eat corn. My daughter loves vegetables, thank goodness.
