I am always searching for soup recipes that are low cal and healthy. I have yet to find one, that my family would all like, and eat. I need recipe because I am not good at making homemade soup. Please share you if you have some favorite ones you use.

I'm not much of a soup person except in the winter. I love chicken soup but I don't follow a specific recipe. Usually it's chicken, carrots, celery, maybe some onion, with a bit of basil, thyme, and pepper. Sometimes I'll throw in a couple of potatoes but that's rare - potatoes are mostly for beef stew IMHO. I never add salt due to blood pressure issues - everyone can add salt after the fact. After every thing is cooked up I throw in some rice to both add a more substance and thicken it up a bit.

I've made turkey soup following the same general recipe just with turkey instead. Some people use egg noodles instead of rice. I'm not a big fan of that.

I have used jello on my toast, instead of jam.
also can make milkshake using low fat milk, and a bit of jello powder mixed . I find the light jello mixes in better. I don't use it ,because I am allergic to low cal sweeteners except Stevia.

I think whole wheat chicken wrap would be low cal, and filling to eat, lots of lettuce and tomato and grilled chicken some sliced peppers, red onion. Or a lean roast beef wrap, could even have a turkey bacon BLT wrap. Now look , what I have done . I am hungry and its only mid afternoon. :D
