Asian Weight Loss Soup: Miso Soup with Watercress and Shiitake
If you want to lose weight fast, the one of the best strategies is to always have healthy soups at hand and not pre-packaged (those have dangerous chemicals).
This is my favorite.
It is low in calories, very satisfying, easy to make and it tastes excellent! It is also loaded with antioxidants and is very high in nutrient density.
Make a big batch of this and keep it in your refrigerator. You can also put it into a thermos to take to work.
This recipe makes six mouth watering bowls’ you can make more if you like:
