Low Calorie Vegetable Soup

Well bonjour and good eeeeeevening.

You probably noticed in my post yesterday that veggies seemed to have eluded a lot of my plates this weekend. Sure I enjoy indulging, but I am an everything in moderation kinda gal, and I didn’t completely snub my veggies.

Yesterday I made crock pot vegetable soup for dinner and it was pretty darn yummy, and it is practically calorie-free.

In that mix is:

  • half of one of those huge bags of carrots (probably about 10), chopped
  • 8 stalks celery (almost an entire bunch), chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • pack of Knorr vegetable soup mix
  • 1 (900ml) carton low-sodium beef broth (about 6 cups)
  • 2 cups water

I put it in my crock pot in the am and let it cook allllll day long on low. It was veggie-packed and seriously delicious. Also perfect for lunch again today.

Pretty sure I will be eating it all week, because it made a ton. Definitely a good way to sneak in a bunch of veggies if you are sick of salad (which I am not, but I like to switch it up).


I took my gym’s 7:30 BodyPump class tonight, and man, I am finding the most recent release pretty hard. I have done it a couple of times now, and I am continually struggling at the end of squats, triceps and lunges. Squats especially, I felt like the track went on forevaaaa. Definitely a good workout though, and one that I will be feeling tomorrow.

This post is on the short side and a little on the lackluster side, but it is late (school night late, not weekend late) and I am off to get ready for bed.

Have a great night!

    I love making huge batches of veggie-heavy soup that fills me up for calories that don't even count.
    Beef broth would taste goooood. I want to try that!

  2. Vegetable soup is a great thing to have on hand! I like to make big batches of it during the cold weather months to freeze and then bust out it out as a healthy accompaniment to dinner. Thank you for the recipe!

  3. I made veggie soup last night too – its a shame there was actual stirring involved instead of just crock-potting though 😦 Yours looks so easy!

  4. Oh yum that soup sounds great!! I LOVE vegetable soup. It’s perfect in the colder months for getting the veggies in!

  5. I need to go get a new crockpot asap. i miss it, especially the part where dinne is already ready for me when i get home! yay!
    and the mixture of repetitive squats and lunges gets me everytime, like i feel like i would die if i kept going. but its good for us right?

  6. I just wanted to congratulate you for being the top google search result for “happy or hungry”! I am sure you already knew that, but I still think it is pretty exciting.

    Kitten the Cat is at number 3, which is pretty exciting for me since I slack so much!

    I still remember the days when my blog didn’t come up in a Google search at all

  7. I freaking love my crock pot. Probably one of my favorite things ever invented, hah.

  8. I have to say that looks nearly identical to the veggie soup I made the last time. I was right outta the hospital and wanted to ingest as many vitamins as possible with as little torture on my stomach as possible… perfect! I love your blog, too, keep up the great posts! Found you through Love Life Project

  9. I made my first crockpot meal last week! I was inspired by you and your crockpotting. I made lentils and sausage soup with broccoli and cauliflower. Yum! Your soup looks great!
    Body pump sounds hard.
