loving soup at the moment

So I've gone soup crazy I made tomato lentil and now mushroom and sweet potato and I'm loving it last year when I did sw I got slimmer of the week when I did weeks where I had soup for lunch. I think it really helps not sure why though lol anyone else get great success with soup?

I'm exactly the same. I've been making several large pots of soup every week and have a bowl for lunch most days.

I used to think that you couldn't have soup without at least one slice of bread, but now I find I don't miss the bread at all. I fill the soup full of lots of speed veggies and then blitz it using the hand blender til it's nice and smooth. It is so filling and satisfying.

I'm not a soup lover but saw lots of pins on Pinterest about super speed soup, so had my first go ever at making soup a couple of weeks back. It turned out ok and actually I loved it, I was nervous of not being full and needing bread. But like Thistle I haven't had any bread and find it realy filling, dinner today and tomorrow is the last two tubs from the freezer so I will be back in the kitchen again on the weekend to make some more.

I managed a 2.5lb loss last week, weighing in tonight so fingers crossed the soup has worked some more magic

Not sure whether to go with super speed or try something new?

I have the SW Soup recipe book, but can't say I've tried a lot of them.
There are plenty of great ideas in there though. I really like the minestrone one

I made this soup last week http://www.hummusapien.com/hearty-le...e-potato-soup/

Syn free with fry light not olive oil and definitely filling enough to not need bread.

I meant to try the carrot and ginger from the sw soup book but my carrots were all mouldy
