Gumbo Soup (Low Cal) Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

12 cup water
6 tsp vegetable bouillon granules
4 tomatoes, fresh or 1-lb can
1/2 cup corn, fresh or canned
1 celery rib, diced
1 onion, diced
1/2 cup okra, cut
1/4 cup rice, white or brown
1/8 tsp tabasco sauce (optional)
1 cup shredded cabbage (optional)

Recipe Preparation

Directions: Place all ingredients in a large pot, bring to boil,
cover and simmer about 20 minutes until all vegetables are done.
1-l/2 C serving equals about
35 calories.

NOTE: I use Uncle Ben's Converted Rice as it seems to hold its shape
better in long cooking periods. Any rice will work if this soup is
not reheated several times, but it usually is!

This is a thin soup, I sometimes add shredded cabbage, chard, bok
choy, or other green vegetable to it. The greens make it thicker and
more filling, but add few calories. This doesn't resemble the real
Cajun Gumbo, but is good for those days when you feel you've
over-indulged and need to cut back. I keep in it the fridge and use
it as a snack when I just have to have something else. You can also
add herbs, hot pepper, it is very versatile, and a good starting

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The argument against low carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Most of the unpleasant side-effects claimed, like general tiredness, bowel disorders, or bad headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Whilst there is considerable evidence that suggests that reduced carb diets may help with your diet, some of this anecdotal evidence has resulted in much debate between nutrition gurus, and their safety record has been the cause of great debate
Cruciferous vegetables, Superfoods that also help your Your diet
(includes Cauliflower, Fresh green beans, Mizuna and Rutabaga)
Members of the brassica family have large amounts of vitamins (eg.folate), minerals (selenium and potassium, for example), fibre, chlorophyll, antioxidents, isothiocyanates, and indole-3-carbinol.

Over and above their many other healthy effects, some of these nutrients are believed to help reduce the cancer risk in those prone to it..
