My Favorite Soups – 18 Delicious Recipes

Cold weather always seems to kick up our craving for a bowl of hot soup.

Since I already posted several soup recipes in the past, today I will provide pictures of these soups, and links to the respective recipes.

So, get your ingredients together, and stir up a pot of delicious soup for yourself to enjoy on a cold day.

Quick Homemade Donuts (Paczki, Pampushky) – Recipe

I love homemade donuts, especially those made from a Ukrainian or Polish recipe, since it reminds me of my mom’s heaping plate of these, for special occasions, or weekends.

If you ever had homemade donuts, you will agree that they are absolutely delicious!!

Foundation – Phase Two-The Fat Smash Diet

Congratulations!

We successfully completed the Detox Phase of the Fat Smash Diet.

Didn’t the 9 days just fly by? Aren’t you feeling better already? I sure am, and it feels great!

Phase Two is much easier than Phase one, in regards to food selection. Even though we still continue with all the foods from Phase One, we are making new additions. This phase lets us get back to many of the foods we were missing during the past nine days. It still is very important to eat 4-5 smaller meals per day, and healthful snacks in between.

Lentils With Mushrooms and Asparagus – Vegetarian Soup Recipe

I was searching for a healthful vegetarian soup recipe, and after reading the Fat Smash Diet recipes, I came up with my own version of the Lentils with Broiled Mushrooms and Asparagus soup.

I used most of the ingredients in that recipe, but in larger quantities, and applied a slightly different cooking process in completing it.  Today I am posting my version, as I am quite pleased with the taste and texture of this hearty soup.

Baby Lima Bean Salad – Vinaigrette Recipe

Whenever we decide to change our eating habits, we begin to search for new recipes to expand our culinary horizons.

Today I put together this Baby Lima Bean Vinaigrette salad, which is very healthful, vegetarian, and fits perfectly in the Fat Smash Diet category I am currently following.  It is full of protein from the Lima Beans, plus the goodness of the other vegetables and seeds incorporated into it.
