I offer you my breakfast soup. This soup is stock full of protein, beans, whole grains, vegetable choices, and light on the stomach. Keeping our food portions light, enables the body to heal appropriately. Heavy, laden food fare causes our digestive system to work overtime and makes it difficult to reduce toxic waste that has accumluated in our joints and connective tissue. Try this delightful soup and consume it each day in the morning. Over the next few months your mornings will take on a whole new meaning of feeling fit again.
You may change grains and beans depending on your desired food type. I make this each Sunday and have enough for the week. Skip the bread in the morning.
