Are you participating in or interested in a Whole Diet Plan that involves the 7-Day Basic Vegetable Soup from Good Housekeeping?

It's really interesting how this one soup recipe can be completely different just by adding a few additional ingredients.

You Got It!

This soup recipe is awesome, but when you make it into Minestrone soup, Mexican Chicken soup, Greek Fish Stew, and Southwest Chili just by adding new ingredients, it becomes even better.

We'll get to those another time, but in the mean time, check out this recipe and give it a try. In fact, I think you would enjoy the entire diet plan! I know I certainly am!
