All Your Vegetables Soup

Click here for the Health Tip link.

The Triple Whammy Food Plan focuses on eating a wide variety of nutrient-packed fruits and veggies. Carbohydrate timing using complex carbs is at the heart of eating the Triple Whammy way, to help your body generate feel-good serotonin all day, keeping energy and mood up.

If your holiday experience includes encountering food everywhere–much of it cookies and candy–you’re definitely not alone.

This month we’re featuring nutritious soups and a chili to make when time permits and then freeze in portions that will serve you and your family. Defrost when you need a quick and healthy meal, and serve with a nice spinach salad and some whole-grain bread brushed with olive oil.

You can easily double this soup recipe by doubling the ingredients. A cup makes an excellent mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack that boosts your feel-good serotonin and keeps hunger pangs from magnetically pulling you toward that cookie plate.

1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
2 cups red bell pepper, chopped
2 cups potato, chopped (peel on for more nutrition, peel off for a more elegant presentation)
4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
2 T red salsa

How to make it:
Into a large soup pot put everything but the salsa.
Bring to a boil over high heat and then reduce heat and simmer, partly covered, for about 25 minutes.
Test the vegetables by inserting a fork. When they’re soft, turn off the heat, remove the lid to let the steam escape, and stir in the salsa.
Cool a bit and then purée in batches in a blender or food processor, being careful to let any steam escape.
