Weight Watcher's Vegetable Soup

 Well, I went back to the doctor for my recheck.  Guess what!  Everything is back to normal.  My triglycerides are good, so I don't have to worry about eating a low carb diet.  Yes!  However, I do want to eat right and eat healthy.  Therefore, I'm back on Weight Watchers.  I love it!  You can eat what you want and don't have to worry about the carbs.  You focus on portion control and of course, count your points--which isn't too bad, especially when you can eat this delicious vegetable soup for 0 (yes, zero) points.

Weight Watcher's Vegetable Soup

2/3 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup diced onion
2 minced garlic cloves
3 cups fat free chicken broth (you can use beef or vegetable broth)
1 1/2 cups diced green cabbage
1/2 cup green beans
1 Tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced zucchini

Spray a large sauce pan with nonstick cooking spray, heat.  Saute carrots, onion, and garlic over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes.  Add broth, cabbage, beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and salt; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer, covered about 15 minutes or until beans are tender.  Stir in the zucchini and heat for 3-4 minutes.  Serve hot.

  1. Hi, Nancee and Larry! I so enjoyed meeting you both on our flight from Atlanta to Charlotte last night. Today I learned that I did not get the job so upon reflecting about the day, one of my happiest memories is meeting you two! There is always a silver lining, isn't there? I hope Larry's mom is home and that you are all preparing for the big football game tomorrow evening. Let's keep our fingers crossed! Go Gamecocks! ;-) Sharon ( P.S.
