This is taken from Woman's World Magazine. The nutritional information posted is inaccurate. I believe that when I include "or" in the list of ingredients, all of the options are added together.

THANK YOU for posting this. I had been using this recipe directly from the magazine but I have not been able to find my magazine. This soup totally works. I lost 10 pounds in about two weeks on this soup and I was only eating it once a day. It's delicious and I am so glad you posted the recipe!
