Hot, Hearty Soups. Yum!!!

It's getting to be that time of year. At least it's trying to get there here in Florida. I keep waiting. Anyway, my thoughts have turned toward making soup. There's nothing better that a hot, hearty soup to warm you up.

Soups are know for their healthy contents. After all, they are filled to the brim with vegetables. What a better way to lose weight than by eating delicious soups. By making sure they are low fat, low cholesterol, and low sodium you make it even easier to shed the weight. So get busy and start making those soups.

      It's snowing here again in Indiana...perfect timing to pull up these recipes! Love soups--so good with crusty bread and fruit, and easy to freeze servings for later. Thanks for sharing!

      Your soups sound good. My husband was out of town last night so I just opened some chicken broth threw in some chicken strips and but it in microwave. Voted up.
