This is a quick update on my weight loss journey. My knees feel better now and I have been walking again. I have eliminated bread from my diet completely, but I ate the last Pizza slice from my freezer after walking 5 miles. That's bad, right? Right!
Anyhow, I have discovered skills and hidden talents that I did not know I had since I started this diet. I have discovered the inner chef in me. Chef Gordon Ramsay ain't got nothing....on....me!
I created this spinach and potato soup (pictured above) 2 weeks ago, and I cannot wait to make it again. Soups like this one have a lot of benefits when trying to lose weight:
#1. You get more vitamins and nutrients because you are using mostly fresh vegetables.
#2. They are easier for your body to digest and process because of their liquid form.
#3. They contain less calories than other food like pasta and rice.
You will need:
- Ground beef burger patty (ies)
- Cooked brown rice
- Cooking oil
- Salt & pepper
- Goya seasoning, and 1 chicken bouillon cube*
You don't have to use all the ingredients that I used. As you can see, I substituted burger patties for meatballs. You can substitute cooked brown rice for wheat elbow macaroni pasta if you want. I hope your soup turns out healthy and tasty as mine did.
