Veggistrone Veggie-Packed Vegetable Soup #Recipe


When it comes to eating vegetables, I like the idea of making either soups or salads ahead, so I don’t have to spend night after night in the kitchen chopping and cooking. There are three servings of vegetables in a mega- 2 cup serving of this minestrone soup recipe that I found over at EatingWell.

This is yet another soup inspired by the Weight Watchers vegetable soup recipe. I say yet another, because I posted a different recipe here.

Over the past year, I’ve lost 20 lbs. on Weight Watchers. I’ve since switched to watching calories, because #1 WW would faithfully deduct that $20 out of my Pay Pal account whether I logging in or not! #2 I felt I wasn’t getting enough fat into my diet on WW and would sabotage myself by overeating. Maybe I’m just sick of dieting in general – but I do know that eating vegetables is a must for a healthy diet. Don’t be surprised if I am following WW next week. Honestly, I am all over the place. Hey, doesn’t WW continuously change their own plan??? Can anyone else relate to this?

According to Weight Watchers, many people that follow the program say that the WW soup is the secret to their weight-loss success.

This soup isn’t zero points. It’s got some healthy oil in it and some protein (kidney or pinto beans). It is low calorie and is satisfying! There are free WW Pointsplus calculators out there.  A two cup serving of this soup is 4 PointsPlus, likewise a 1 cup serving has 2 Pointsplus.

    Oh it looks so hearty and delicious! I love a good vegetable soup, and I love minstrone, so the combination is just perfect! I also love the addition of spinach in this one! As well as the garlic and basil! Just the different aromas and tastes that can come from such a mixture is wonderful! I’ll have to keep this recipe in my memories for sure! Thanks for sharing!

    This recipe looks yummy. I like to make huge batches of soup. I will portion a couple of containers to keep in the refrigerator and portion more to put in the freezer. In that way, I rotate eating several varieties of healthy soups and don’t get tired of eating the same one all the time.
