I’m sticking loosely to the cleanse this week to get beach body ready and pairing it with lots of Pure Barre, of course. The hubs and I are super excited to be going down to a friend’s beach place this weekend for Memorial Day. I’m pretty sure if Eric had a nickel for every time I said “I’m so excited for the beach!” he’d be a rich man by now.
This recipe is my loose version of Clean Eating friendly by getting whole wheat macaroni noodles and including lots of veggies. This recipe does involve a lot of chopping and dicing of veggies so I usually cut up the veggies the night before and then get the soup together the next day so it doesn’t take a large chunk out of my afternoon.
Here’s what the cleanse booklet has to say about this soup, “This soup is intended as a supplement to your diet. It can be eaten any time of the day and virtually in unlimited quantities. It is cholesterol free and virtually fat free.” Recipe yields 16 servings at 1 cup each and has 158 cals per serving.
