Cold weather blues call for comfort foods that aren’t always so healthy. This can be overtime very uncomfortable for your fitness goals.
Solution: Homemade soups made with healthy hand picked ingredients! Forget “cuffing season” and searching for a winter swolemate, get in the kitchen because it’s “Souping Season!”
My first concoction of the season: Tuna & Veggie Egg Drop Soup with a touch of Indian spices for fun flavor!
Before you get all bug eyed. Here’s the ingredients list:
3 – 4 oz. Chopped Yellow fin tuna steaks
4 cups Frozen Cut broccoli florets
1 – bushel fresh Chopped kale
13.5 oz. Cooked 100% liquid egg white
Indian inspired broth:
1/2 Gallon Water
Tumeric root powder
Toss everything in a crockpot on medium to high heat overnight about 6 to 8 hours and it’s ready to go for tomorrow’s winter lunch or even dinner. Heck if you just don’t feel like fixing anything else to eat you can eat it all day. It’s low calorie, low fat, low carb, low sodium, and high protein and high in essential nutrients. Feel free to add additional veggies of your liking, just note that the nutritional data will vary. Below are the nutritional fact for the batch I made from the above ingredients. It yields about six 8 oz. servings. Essentially a cup of soup.
Optional toppings for serving can be about 15 to 30 grams fresh avocado or a half ounce of reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Of course you’ll have to account for the extra nutritional data here as well. Use these optional fatty toppings sparingly for a more robust and tummy filling experience.
Plus the aroma of the Indian spices in the air while it cooks gives a warming holiday healing calm to a cold winter night. Similar to the wholesome aroma of kitchadi an Indian healing soup I learned how to make when I was in yoga school.
So get your cups and spoons ready. ..it’s “Souping Season”
Until next time. …. I AM CANDICE MARIA
