Daily detox soup – leftover roast vegetable soup

We had a lovely roast chicken lunch with potatoes, broccoli, parsnips, carrots and red onion (which was in the baking tray soaking up all chicken juice). We had made too many vegetables and couldn’t eat them all so bunged them in a pan with some chicken stock and whizzed it up with a handheld blender when hot. Wow – this was an unexpected success. The roasted red onion really came through and it was probably one of the best soups so far!

An update on the weight loss. I can now take off two pairs of jeans without undoing the buttons and zip, and a suit which I had to breathe right in so I could do up the top button, is dangerously dangling on the precipice of my hips.

It feels great to fit into those jeans without the muffin top and the deep breathe to do up the button. My goal of wearing my white slim-fit shirt without it looking like the buttons will pop out is looking better everyday!!

Suggest a soup recipe for me to try @jelly_wobbler or in the comments below.

Daily detox soup – leek and potato

I’ve followed my smoothie – lunch – soup diet for about three weeks now. I’ve seriously cut down on my sugar/chocolate/cake intake, and I’ve lost about half a stone already. My trousers are feeling looser and my shirts aren’t so tight around the middle. Something is definitely working!

The next soup is an old favourite – leek and potato. Following on from the chunky chicken soup, I didn’t blizt the vegetables after cooking, so I had something more to chewy on. Really lovely, and really whomesome. Yum!
