Today's lunch is a butternut squash soup with chickpeas.

I did make a big batch of lentil soup yesterday (onions, garlic, carrots, celery, large can of crushed tomatoes, some veggie broth and 2 cups of uncooked lentils). It is really good.

chicken soup:
chicken breast boiled and broth skimmed.
1 can of cream of mushroom soups( healthy version)
1 can of cream of celery( healthy version)
1/2 bag of no yoke egg noodles
mix with the broth to the consitency you want..i like it thin..my kids like it thick.
I tend to eat less of the noodles and more broth.
I have added celery, mushroom, and carrots to it.

Just tried this the other day and it is so quick and easy and relatively low cal

Tomato/Tortilla Soup
whirl in a food processer: 1 onion (chopped), 2 cloves garlic (chopped), 1 can whole tomatoes

then put it on the stove and cook it for about 10-15 minutes to get the onion bits tender

add about 6-8 cups of chicken broth, some spice (I used ground chili), and some herbs (I used basil but you could use cilantro)

Simmer for as much time as you have and waaa laaaaa!

I added a little shredded cheddar for garnish which was tasty. Depending upon how many calories you were willing to add, you could add all kinds of garnishes (sour cream, tortilla strips) but to me, it was nice and satisfying just on its own.

I am making Taco Soup tonight:

Brown 1 lb of extra lean (96% lean) beef or ground turkey with one chopped onion.
1 can pinto beans, rinsed
1 can kidney beans, rinsed
1 can chili beans & sauce
8oz can of Rotel Mexican tomatoes
8oz can of diced tomatoes
1 c water
1 oz taco seasoning (1 packet)
1 oz Ranch seasoning (1 packet)

Simmer 1 hour.

Sometimes I add a can of corn, drained. Or a couple of zucchinis, cubed small.

The kids top it with light sour cream, corn chips and grated cheese.
