Cool off with this summer soup! So simple to make and full of vegetables. This recipe is quick and easy and requires no cooking. For only 40 calories per cup you can enjoy this soup anytime of day.
Soup is usually something we think of making in the cold winter months. I usually make a different soup every Saturday in the winter and eat it with lunch or dinner throughout the week. Recently I had to make a cold Gazpacho Soup for a dinner club and it occurred to me that I didn’t have to stop having soup just because it was warm outside! Soup is a great way to help you lose or maintain your weight loss. Eating a bowl before meals helps to fill you up so you eat less calories. This particular soup is full of vegetables which is a great way to meet your daily nutritional needs. It’s also low in sodium so no need to worry about your blood pressure going through the roof. So whip up a batch of Gazpacho and enjoy it this week!
