Low Calorie and Low Sodium Vegetable Soup


Need to hit the reset button after the long Holiday weekend?  Try this delicious vegetable soup.  I love soups in the Fall and Winter, but most of the ones I find in a restaurant or pick up to go somewhere are so overloaded with salt that they leave me feeling and looking so bloated.  This recipe uses low-sodium broth, no-salt added diced tomatoes and takes advantage of seasonings like turmeric instead of salt to add flavor.  This soup has everything you need to nourish and fuel your body and nothing that you don’t.
