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.

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.

The Fat Smash Diet – First Day OF Detox

I already informed you about the Fat Smash Diet, introduced you to the book, posted the food list, and hopefully convinced you to join me, so we can have fun together.

So today is the BIG day, our first day of Detox, and as with anything else in life, first is always the most challenging. It will get easier with each passing day, believe me, because you are building up your confidence, self control, and most of all, you begin to feel better and eat healthier.

I printed out my lists of Recommended and “DO NOT” foods, and posted it on my refrigerator. My food shopping was done on Saturday, and on Sunday I jotted down my basic plan for my daily eating routine and a quick first day menu.
