This is the soup that is included in the Cathi Graham's Fresh Start Metabolism Program. Its a large recipe, so I will freeze serving portions and take it to work with me to thaw and heat in the mic. On this program, the fast start part, you eat this soup every day, plus other stuff they suggest for two weeks, etc. It tastes pretty good for a "diet soup". If you want a more creamy texture, you can blend 1/2 of the soup in your blender and add it back into the remaining soup. Don't spice up soup too much at first. Then when you reheat individual bowls, you can add different fresh or dried herbs, spices or hot sauces. That way you can add a different fabulous flavor to every bowl.
