Weight Watchers Simply Filling Slow Cooker Bean & Cabbage Soup

Simple Weight Watchers Cabbage Bean Soup

I love soup.

Eating a bowl of soup for lunch and/or dinner several times a week is one of my favorite strategies for staying slim.

Studies show that people who eat a broth-based soup as part of a meal, especially a chunky one, eat less at the next meal, and fewer total calories throughout the day. Probably because broth based vegetable soups are packed with lots of water and fiber, so you feel satisfied with relatively few calories.

After all the indulgences of the past few weeks, I actually find myself craving basic soups, like this super simple slow cooker bean and cabbage soup that also works with the Simply Filling Technique.

The Skinny on Weight Watchers Simply Filling Slow Cooker Bean & Cabbage Soup

I adapted it for the slow cooker from Weight Watchers Momentum Healthy Cooking Basics, a great healthy cooking reference book filled with 175 delicious recipes and 10 essential cooking techniques.

(This Weight Watchers cookbook is from 2008, so it gives Points instead of PointsPlus values, but complete nutritional information is provided so you can easily calculate the PointsPlus for every recipe.)

Each Serving has 198 calories and *5 Weight Watchers Points Plus.

This slow cooker bean and cabbage soup is easy, healthy and satisfying. Why not make a big batch this weekend to enjoy all week long?

    I added Trader Joe’s frozen brown and black rice since rice and beans make a complete protein. I also added a heaping Tbs. of coconut oil as some nutrients need fat to be absorbed. I also used a can of low sodium black beans and a can of Amy’s Refried Black Beans that are vegetarian. The soup came out really good.
