Veggie, Veggie Soup Baby!
1 64 ounces can of V8
32 oz of peas (frozen or canned, your choice)
32 oz of corn (I prefer frozen)
4 diced potatoes
48 oz of green beans
24 oz of cole slaw mix (one bag and half of another, I like lots of cabbage!)
Carrots (as much or little as you like)
Spices: basil, thyme, crushed red pepper and rosemary (use to your taste)
~Pour the V8 juice into your crock pot on the high temp setting, I add all my spices except red pepper in at this time.
~Cabbage mix goes in first, cook for two and a half hours on high
~Then add potatoes and carrots, cook for another hour and a half
~Then add in the rest of your veggies and the crushed red pepper and cook until everything is nice and tender
Really easy and really delicious and super healthy. A serving which is about 2 cups is about 180 calories!! I have made it with other veggies too, like squash and zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower. Sometimes I leave the potato out completely. Make it the way you like it and eat up. Its a wonderful way to get your veggies, feel full and kick your metabolism into overdrive!
~~Remember that you should be eating other, low calorie protein filled food (like skim string cheese) to get the protein you need for building and repairing muscle.~~
