Turn Your Stir Fry Into A Soup!

by Kathy Smith

As the holiday party season arrives, lose weight (and warm up) with this healthy recipe…with a twist. Next time you’re left roaming the fridge for a hunger-satisfying meal, but all you find are miscellaneous veggies, it’s the perfect time to pull out the wok.

Once you’ve completed your stir fry (recipes below), add low-sodium chicken broth and additional seasoning to punch up the flavor. This hearty option is packed with protein, fiber and antioxidants and the warming effect will keep you satisfied all winter long.
