Healthy Lunch: Spicy Veggie Soup


As a part of my change in lifestyle I've been trying to come up with healthy recipes for meals. This is the first one I came up with. It's a spicy soup. I made it spicy because it makes me eat the soup slower so that I feel full once I'm finished eating. And the molecules that make it spicy are good for blood vessels and a myriad of other health benefits.

What's in it?

Chicken broth, garlic, pepper, shredded carrots, jalapeno pepper, onion, yellow squash, wide egg noodles, mushrooms and spinach.

How did it taste? 

Amazing! The baby liked it so much she ate it with me. Even with the kick of spice, it was a very pleasant lunch. I feel full and satiated.
