Low Calorie Leek and Potato Soup For A Quick Dinner

We're not talking about cabbage soup, chicken soup or any other diet soups. You can eat any kind of soup you want! The secret is to eat only clear soup, so make sure you remove the veggies.

When you eat soup, you feel full faster, which stops you from consuming other foods. More than that, eating soup improves your digestion and hydrates your body.

You won't feel hungry at all after eating plenty of soup, that's for sure!

 

LEEK AND POTATO SOUP:

(210 calories) recipe for one portion

1 small stack of leeks (120g)
1 potato (approx. 150g)
1 teaspoon of olive oil
500 ml of vegetable stock
salt, pepper, chives for seasoning

Wash the leeks and slice the stack into small rings. Peel and cut the potato into small cubes. Put the olive oil into a pan and heat the potatoes and leeks until glazy. Then ad the vegetable stock, ad seasoning to taste and slowly cook for about 15 minutes. Take the soup of the cooker and puree the vegetable soup. Season again if necessary and ad chives when serving the soup. For extra flavour you could ad a dot of sour cream or creme fraiche, which will bring the calorie count up just a little.

100 Star Foods for Super Health!

100 Star Foods for Super Health!

To facilitate the myriad of biochemical processes that go on inside us each and every day we all need a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. To get these nutrients we need to eat a wide variety of different kinds of food, but, alarmingly, many of us eat a very restricted diet in which we repeatedly choose our favourite meals. In contrast, in Japan people eat a far more varied diet, often consuming around 100 different varieties of food each week. Is it any wonder, therefore, that the United Kingdom finds itself at Number 37 in the world rankings for life expectancy, while Japan finds itself at Number 3?
