Snowmagedon 2019 is here!! We hardly ever get snow – now we have 12″ and some places of 20″!! This does not happen in St. Louis very often.
Of course this means SOUP! I wanted a warm, healthy bowl of soup I could eat and eat and not feel guilty. Here is your no guilt soup that can be easily modified for ZERO weight watcher points. I added beans for fiber and protein, but you could use edamame instead. I used a mixed vegetable frozen mix, but you could substitute green beans instead and again it would make this zero points for the soup.
Serve with a grilled cheese, or Parmesan on top, or baguette or totally on its own or with a quick protein drink. I tried out 1st Phorm Caramel Latte and it is SOOOO good!!!! They even have Ice Cream Sandwich, Milk Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream flavors!!! I know I know protein drinks taste terrible. But I am a huge skeptic and it is actually good. I was even skeptical of the reviews because you know those can be faked and I think they are real because it is really that smooth and creamy.
This soup makes a LOT so feel free to cut it in half or just eat it throughout the week like I did!
