Diet Tip, Serving Suggestions

Soup that is low in caloric values is always a wise choice at meal time. If you enjoy it before the main course, it can assist in making you feel full so that you don't eat as much. Because it's generally served hot, you can take your time while you're eating.

Most soups go extremely well when paired with a sandwich prepared with whole grain bread and lean proteins - and yes, stuffed with healthy vegetables. It's much like enjoying a gourmet salad with your soup - only it is sandwiched between two slices of bread.

Cornbread goes well with this Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe; have you experimented with the stone ground blue variety? This is one way to keep your weight loss plan fresh - keep experimenting with new, healthy foods that can add joy to your weight loss plan.

And a pretty presentation goes a long way in satisfying the appetite and delighting the eyes at meal time.
