Use this easy weight loss vegetable soup recipe as your secret weapon to help shed those unwanted pounds. Keep it on hand for healthy lunches and snacks!

Once or twice every year, I make up my mind that not only do I need to eat healthier, but I also need to lose a few, unwanted pounds. When I’m in that mode, some days it’s fairly easy, while other days it is next to impossible.

The one thing that helps me the most is having healthy choices on hand. Clearly this is a no-brainer, but nevertheless, many times I fail at this very simple thing. When I go to the grocery store, I stock up on fruits and vegetables, plus a few other items that hopefully will help me get through the day. I also make this easy weight loss vegetable soup recipe.

Why This Recipe Works

This recipe is definitely a keeper for three reasons. First, it’s healthy. Second, it’s super easy and very quick to make. Third, you can basically use whatever you have on hand to make it!

NOTE:
Sometimes life happens. I had planned to take the photos for this post on a particular day, but that morning I discovered I didn’t have any green beans. What I thought were green beans were actually peas! I had no time to run to the grocery, and when I looked at my calendar, there was no other available day to take the pictures. So I forged ahead, used the peas, and finished the post. Yes…green beans are the better choice for weight loss, but the peas were a good swap, and they were delicious!

Cooking Instructions

  • Prepare and measure carrots, celery, onion, peas, corn, and sweet potato.
  • Pour olive oil into a large soup pot.
  • On medium high heat, add all the vegetables including the sweet potato and can of tomatoes.
  • Add salt and pepper.
  • Cook for five minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add chicken broth and tomato juice. Stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low.
  • Cover and simmer about 30 minutes.

TIPS

  • When making this weight loss vegetable soup, the chopping step only takes a few minutes. I don’t mind chopping…I actually think it’s very therapeutic. Chopping included, you can have the soup simmering on the stove in less than 20 minutes.
  • The total calories are calculated in the printable recipe card below. One serving of this delicious soup is 100 calories! If you left out the olive oil and used nonstick spray, the calorie count would be slightly less.

Frequently Asked Questions

This weight loss vegetable soup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Yes! It’s best to freeze it in serving size containers so you can pull it out when you need a quick lunch.

My “healthy eating” plan consists of oatmeal or a smoothie for breakfast, and a cup of soup for lunch, along with some fruit. If I feel the need for protein at lunch, I add cottage cheese, yogurt, or a slice of turkey. Dinner is a salad with extra fruits and vegetables, and chicken, fish, or lean beef.

I do know how to eat healthy…in fact I am very good at it. My issue is actually making the choice to eat the healthy food over the not-so-healthy food. That is my constant struggle.

Yes! Try these healthy honey + bran cookies, or this homemade angel food cake.
