Weight Watchers Fresh Vegetable Soup

I love vegetables, but in the winter I don’t want to eat them in a delicious salad. A goal of mine was to make a vegetable soup, so i could get the nutrients I wanted in a different way. What better than a warm soup on a cold winter day! Here’s a completely guilt free way of eating a filling snack or meal (paired with half a sandwich)! I also paired it with a crunchy Wasa cracker. This is now another prepped meal I make on Sunday to eat for lunch throughout the week. Some of the vegetables last from one week to the next. This past weekend, my son was very sick so I made my own variation of the recipe by getting a lot of pre cut veggies from Wegmans. I couldn’t spend much time in the kitchen. Some of the vegetables I grab from the freezer section in the grocery store like the cauliflower and broccoli. Enjoy! Melissa
