WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Bean and Cabbage Soup
(196 calories | 4 0 0 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Today I'm sharing a recipe for WW Simply Filling Slow Cooker Bean & Cabbage 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. (So much so, I wrote a best-selling eCookbook of Slimming WW friendly soup recipes!
Did you know that 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. Great news for Weight Watchers!
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 old WW Simply Filling Technique.
It's the easiest, tastiest, most nourishing way I know to get back on plan.
