This recipe inspired in part or in whole from here


  1. tried the soup, however i just used yellow and green squash, 2 large carrots and 1/4 of an onion and some chicken broth low sodium and it was really good.. you don’t need to used all the ingredients just do it your own way without adding extra calories…

  2. Hey everyone, I’m a little confused – in one of my shopping list/recipe calendars, it says “Light Vegetable Soup; chicken” for one of the dinner recipes. Where/how does the chicken come into play with this recipe?

    1. Nathaniel – The chicken comes into play this way. We ask you to prepare chicken in the beginning of the week so you can add it to certain meals and snacks throughout the week to add more protein. This chicken can be added to your serving of soup for this meal – heated up in the pot with it – or it can just be eaten on the side. Sorry for the confusion – we’ll try to word it differently in the future!
