I’ve been doing really well with cutting a lot of carbs from my diet. And when I say really well, I mean over 18 lbs. lost in just 7 weeks. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good piece of homemade bread and a slice of pie as much as the next person. But the truth is that I needed to shed a few pounds. For me, one of the quickest ways is to cut out the carbs.
Being a carb lover and a soup lover, I really missed a good bowl of homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese…it seriously doesn’t get any more comforting than that. I knew I could say goodbye to the sandwich, but not my soup. So I can up with this low carb low calorie tomato soup that is as good, if not better, than my regular tomatoes which (which is pretty darn good too).
