Hamburger Soup

Healthy eating is not about sticking to strict nutrition philosophies, or staying away from foods you like. Its about eating smart. It’s about what and how you eat. Watch for lower fat and higher fiber content. Portion control is important! Remember there is a lag time (about 20 minutes) between your stomach being full and your brain knowing it.

This is a healthy, hearty soup that is sure to please your taste buds and fill you up.
