Gazpacho Soup – The Secret to Preventing Overeating
Do you ever need a little low-calorie something to take the edge off your hunger? This gazpacho soup recipe, courtesy of a former client of mine, Sarah Maslow, is going to be the perfect fix for you. Sarah finds that making a light meal of this soup before eating out fills her up just the right amount- enough to prevent overeating without completely taking away her appetite. It’s also perfect for those I-shouldn’t-be-hungry-but-I-am-anyways moments (and we all have those) 😉 .
Here’s the Recipe:
1 jar mild salsa
1 bottle V8 juice or tomato juice
1/2 cup chopped mango and/or peaches (can use frozen)
1 Tbsp brown sugar or 1/2 Tbsp Splenda brown sugar
4 frozen garlic cubes or grated fresh garlic
2 tsp hot sauce or more, depending on how spicy you like it
Optional: Can blend 2 cucumbers & 2 tomatoes and add to mixture if you want a thicker consistency
Mix all ingredients thoroughly and chill. Serve with garlic croutons.
