A healthier soup
Soups, stews and slow cooked crock pot meals provide comfort when the weather is getting cold. Instead of adding noodles, potatoes or rice to these recipes, DeKay recommends filling up on lower-calorie, nutritious veggies such as chopped kale, cauliflower, turnip, rutabaga, celery root, onion, pearl onions, eggplant, portabella mushrooms.
