This soup is a complete winner in my books because it’s a whooping 0 Weight Watchers points. The best part is you can customize the soup to your liking, just make sure you count the points if you are adding something other than veggies. I usually add 3-4 ounces of chicken to the soup for a total of 3-4 Weight Watchers points. You can also pair it with a nice sandwich. As I write this post I am eating it with a nice tuna sandwich, a perfect pairing for such a yummy healthy soup. It takes me 20 minutes from start to finish to make this soup. Completely worth the effort.
3.5 cups of non fat, low (to no sodium) beef broth (one box of broth will work perfectly and you can use other types of broth if you wish)
Today was a crazy day, I woke up to the craving of meatballs. I haven’t had a meatball in quite sometime. I thought to myself how can I make a healthy meatball to satisfy this darn craving? Well instead of using beef, I used lean ground chicken instead (half a pound), a half a cup of fine bread crumbs, one large egg white. For the spices I added half a tablespoon of minced garlic, a pinch of ground pepper, rosemary, oregano, and thyme. I used a tablespoon to scoop up the meat and form the balls and cooked them for 20 mins at 360 in the oven. I was able to make about 9 meatballs for 1 point each. Serve with you choice of pasta, rice, or couscous. Make a nice low fat sauce from low sodium tomato sauce, or low fat cream soup and enjoy. Just make sure to account for the points on the startch you choose to pair the meatballs with.
