Am I the only one that ate a few too many goodies during the holidays? No? Then maybe you will enjoy my famous Winter Diet Soup recipe. It's healthy, flavorful, & will help you shed some holiday pounds.

Am I the only one that ate a few too many goodies during the holidays? This week I finally admitted to myself that the 7 or so pounds I put on during the month of December isn’t going to just melt away on it’s own like it did when I was in my 20’s and decided it was time to whip up a batch of my famous Winter Diet Soup.

I’m not normally one for dieting but this week I was definitely looking for something to help me drop a few holiday pounds relatively quickly.

The great thing about this soup–besides the fact that it is super yummy–is that it makes a HUGE batch, enough to last about a week. I love that I can just make it one day and then not have to think about it the rest of the week, because my biggest problem is that I make poor food choices when I’m busy because I’ll often just grab what is the quickest and easiest. It doesn’t get any quicker or easier then heating up some soup!
