Low Calorie Vegetable Soup

Well bonjour and good eeeeeevening.

You probably noticed in my post yesterday that veggies seemed to have eluded a lot of my plates this weekend. Sure I enjoy indulging, but I am an everything in moderation kinda gal, and I didn’t completely snub my veggies.

Yesterday I made crock pot vegetable soup for dinner and it was pretty darn yummy, and it is practically calorie-free.

In that mix is:

  • half of one of those huge bags of carrots (probably about 10), chopped
  • 8 stalks celery (almost an entire bunch), chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • pack of Knorr vegetable soup mix
  • 1 (900ml) carton low-sodium beef broth (about 6 cups)
  • 2 cups water

I put it in my crock pot in the am and let it cook allllll day long on low. It was veggie-packed and seriously delicious. Also perfect for lunch again today.

Pretty sure I will be eating it all week, because it made a ton. Definitely a good way to sneak in a bunch of veggies if you are sick of salad (which I am not, but I like to switch it up).

Workout

I took my gym’s 7:30 BodyPump class tonight, and man, I am finding the most recent release pretty hard. I have done it a couple of times now, and I am continually struggling at the end of squats, triceps and lunges. Squats especially, I felt like the track went on forevaaaa. Definitely a good workout though, and one that I will be feeling tomorrow.

This post is on the short side and a little on the lackluster side, but it is late (school night late, not weekend late) and I am off to get ready for bed.

Have a great night!
