Diet Journal: Baby it's cold outside....
My oh my - those notorious weather guys are predicting a bit of snow for our area tomorrow. Time to pull out all the stops!
It's that perfect time of year for The Diet Soup Patrol. I've got on my shiny badge - and I hope that you'll put yours on too.
I thought that it would be fun to start with a delicious Turkey Noodle Soup recipe that is ultra low in calories AND which can help use up some of those Thanksgiving leftovers in a healthy way.
As with most all soups, this Turkey Noodle Soup recipe is low in calories and low in fat. And it has a perk: it can be made in a snap!
So keep warm - grab a good book and settle in with a cup or two of our Turkey Noodle Soup and relax. As a note, relaxing is as important to weight loss and weight maintenance as activity. The perfect goal is a perfect balance of both combined with a healthy diet. And speaking of healthy - let's get to that tasty low calorie soup recipe!
Turkey Noodle Soup Recipe
2 cups of boned turkey
1 can of mixed vegetables
3-4 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 cup of diced onions
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1 cup of egg noodles - or your favorite noodles
6 cups of water
How to Prepare Our Turkey Noodle Soup Recipe
Saute onion in olive oil in a deep pot. Add water and bring to a boil.
Add bouillon cubes.
Next, add turkey and noodles and cook until noodles are tender. Add drained can of mixed vegetables.
This great thing about this low calorie turkey noodle soup recipe is that almost all the ingredients can be adjusted to suit your personal taste. If you desire a more brothy soup, add more water. If you desire a richer broth - add more bouillon and so forth. In addition, fresh carrots that have been thinly sliced can also be used but they need to be ultra thin so that they cook in conjunction with the noodles. A dash of dried basil also adds a bit of jazz.
This recipe is delicious when served with cornbread. To keep cornbread calories low, use skim milk and melted light margarine in place of oil and/or regular margarine. Egg substitute can also save a few more calories.
