Recipe

Whenever I am getting back on the healthy eating train, I always start with a big pot of vegetable soup. Not only is it filling and packed with nutritious veggies, I find that having it on hand really helps me stay on track and get back to good habits. While you could stick to all veggies, I like to add some kind of lean protein so that it keeps me full. In this case I decided to use lean chicken sausages but you could use chicken breast, chicken thighs, shrimp, or beans.
