Today I would like to share a recipe with you that I think the girls will especially like! This Chunky Vegetable Soup recipe has been in my family for a long time. To help you understand, I have to tell you a little about my mother.
Yes, my one and only, friend forever, super devoted mother who had me when she was about 36. This is a particularly challenging time for a woman to give birth, since it gets more difficult as you get older (they say), but with not even a whim; my mother had an absolutely normal and natural birth – for the fourth time. After my years as a baby and toddler, my mother would battle with the baby weight she left over after her pregnancy.
Please keep in mind that I was a 4.2 kg baby… Yeah.
After my toddler years, I went on to primary school and quickly started realizing what woman do after they turn 40. They diet. She was constantly and always searching for the best diet to lose those unwanted kilos.
My only memory of the diet journey she has been on for most part of my childhood years was this divine vegetable soup that she would cook and would swear by! It was counted as (apparently) a ‘free vegetable’ and that basically means that she could have bowls and bowls full of this delicious soup and wouldn’t pick up an ounce.
A healthy soup for summer or winter.
This Chunky Vegetable Soup recipe is absolutely guilt free and wholesome, vegan friendly and low carb. So there you go girls! This Chunky Vegetable Soup is a great recipe to try when you are feeling a little claustrophobic in those skinny jeans of yours. Best off all – it freezes like a dream and is super easy to make.
