Everything Soup

Not sure what to make for dinner tonight?  Make Everything Soup!  It has a little bit of everything and is a great way to get some vegetables and protein in your diet.

Start out with...vegetables!  I used carrots, zucchini, onions, potatoes and celery.  I boiled them until they were soft in low fat/low sodium chicken broth.  I then threw in some potatoes, corn, chickpeas, dried barley, diced tomatoes and seasoning and let it simmer until the barley was cooked.  If your soup gets too thick, add some water.  If the water flattens the flavor, add some chicken bouillon.

This is delicious served with homemade bread!  Get creative and add your favorite veggies and seasoning. 

Combine with an exercise partner.  Call up a friend, family member or get that spouse of yours to exercise with you.  Exercise brings you closer together and you may find yourself working harder to impress the other guy!  Bribe them with homemade soup!
