I have been eating nonstop in the last three weeks. There is nothing wrong in eating all the kinds of food that you crave as long as they are taken moderately. I simply believe that if you are capable in balancing your diet and healthy lifestyle then you are doing just great! Once a week I try to make something beyond healthy; cleansing food and tastes delicious. This soup is an excellent source of healthful nutrients and fiber! You can enjoy this soup for lunch or dinner that will fill you up leave you feeling satisfied.
