Soup is Good

Day 15 and we are doing fine.. Yesterday I roasted a turkey breast for dinner. Today I made soup.. No those are not noodles.. but bamboo shoots! They look like noodles though, don't ya agree? Since canned soups are off limits but homemade soups are allowed I chopped zuchinni, mushrooms,
sweet peppers, onion and celery with chunks of turkey. Poured some chicken stock into the turkey juices from roasting the turkey added a handful of parsley, a sprinkle of
 redpepper flakes, black pepper but no salt, poured it all together and put the pot
 on the stove to simmer.  I would Like to serve it with a crusty bread roll but  thats not been added yet to our menu of things we can eat. Instead it
 will be whole grain cracker & string cheese, sliced tomato and 1/2 avacado. Now tell me this is Good!

We don't count calories!

Just because the scale didn't go down doesn't mean you haven't lost inches..  and with the continued eating of these dressings on my salads I can say for proof 2 whole inches off  the waistline is worth making your own.  Not just the meals but the dressings & sauces too.
I am making a few  salad dressings tomorrow and this one will be  first on my list: I think it will taste wonderful drizzled on Sauteed Chicken and Vegetables don't  you? Especially if you like to spice it up a bit! *( that recipe will be shared with pictures later). Now if you will join me, pick up that glass of water and wash away some more weight!
