Soup Calendar: 8/20 – 8/24

Tortillini Soup Tawdry Tortellini Soup!  Its so good, it’s sinful (yet far healthier than a restaurant version).  Of course it’s filled with love, but I’ll keep us in calorie-control with cheese-filled tortellini, chicken kielbasa, peas, and spinach.  Treat yourself, it’s still less than 250 cals per serving.

Tomato Cucumber

Tomato Cucumber Salad!   We tested this in early July and it was a HUGE SUCCESS.  So get on the bandwagon and try it out.  Similar to a Capri Salad without the diary.  This delight includes grape tomatoes, persian cucumber, red onion, chopped basil and parsley, marinated in a sweet n tart vinaigrette.  Inputs from Marti – thank you!  Less than 100 cals/serving.


Broccoli Floret SoupBroccoli Floret Soup!  Be brave.  Your body will thank you.  This is a yummy soup that I have not made in awhile. Did you know that broccoli is a great source of calcium and protein?  This soup is creamy without any dairy.  The surprise is the broccoli remains in florets instead of being pureed.  It has greens, celery, garlic, and herb tastes with broccoli florets and chickpeas (for even more protein).  A serving is about 150 calories with 8 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber.

Mexican Quinoa Salad Mexican Quinoa Salad! I love this deli-side –  it’s light, zippy, and filled with good proteins!  It’s naturally sweet from the corn, filled-with protein from the quinoa, and a slight spiciness from the chili powder, cilantro, lime juice, cumin, and sunflower seeds.  It’s dense with nutrition at 200 cals/serving.

Spicy Hummus  w/ Celery Stix!  Hand-crafted never tasted better.  Lemon, garlic, cumin, a ton of spice (jalepeno, red pepper, chipolte) and home-cooked chickpeas.  Served with a stack of celery, it makes for a flavorful and healthy snack filled with fiber, protein and joy.

 Italiano Salad Italiano Salad! Our BIG green salads are fresh, seasonal, and diversified with a variety of veggies, protein, fiber and flavor!  This week’s salad includes:  slivered almonds, marinated artichoke heart, carrots, beans, peppercinni,  parsley, celery, red onion, black olive, and Parmesan cheese, with a home-made Italian dressing. Can be customized with No Cheese, if requested by Saturday.   (less than 220 calories/container).

Natural Protein Bars!
  Our next adventure will be Lemon/Blueberry Bars!  I will let you know when we cook up the next batch!

Our protein bars are getting rave reviews.  Handy, tasty, healthy, and chemical/preservative-free (so much better than the commercial ones that stay on the grocery shelf for a year!).  Each bar contains 16 grams of protein and only 180 calories.  This is a great snack/breakfast solution for busy day.

This week flavor:  Pumpkin Spice Bar or Banana/Berry Bar .
