I watched your show for the first time, and I loved this soup so much, how simple ii was to make, such that I wanted to try it myself. I am losing weight so that i will not get diabetes from taking steroids for a long period of time (since 2007 - I am a Lupus patient). I am a health and wellness freak! Thanks for the help in showing us simple, healthy recipes.
