I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do! The entire whole foods diet plan is wonderfully delicious.
Have you ever wished you could prepare a week's worth of dinners at once?
That is the great thing about this diet plan!
It takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to prepare the “Basic Vegetable Soup” recipe.
To keep it fresh, I put 2 cups of the soup in individual containers and stacked them up in the freezer, thawing them out as needed.
Each day, dinner taste completely different just by adding a few ingredients, making it a unique soup.
Here are some soups you can expect to see;
- Thai Shrimp Soup
- Mexican chicken Soup
- Southwest Chili
- Greek Fish Stew
- Red Beans & Rice Stew

Best of health,
Beautiful website. I love the soup ideas. I, too, make soup and freeze them. I never thought of making a soup base that I could add other ingredients to, so I can have a variety of flavors. I just made one kind and froze it. What a great idea!
It makes me so happy to read messages such as this! I’m glad you enjoyed my website and these soup ideas. When Good Housekeeping published this Amazing Soup Diet in the year 2000, they had the right idea!
Making a base soup in large quantities to freeze and then adding new ingredients to it each time you have soup makes dinner so much easier and less boring, especially when dieting.
I have to admit, as of right now the Minestrone soup is still my favorite.
Thanks for your feedback and compliments! I look forward to hearing back from you!
Best of health,
