Famous Fat Flush Soup



So, I ran into this recipe recently while scouring the internet for low calorie dishes.  This recipe first appeared in Woman's World magazine last year and some of the reviews I have read on it SWEARS by the soup.  One lady claiming she was stuck at a certain weight for weeks, started eating this soup and dropped 1.4 pounds over night.  Well, I have been eating it for a couple of days and have not gotten such results but I can tell you one thing.  This soup is delicious!!!  And by looking at the ingredients, really healthy for you as well.  I did tweak a couple of things from the original recipe because of personal preferences, such as it calls for mushrooms and I despise mushrooms!  So, here is the recipe:

Ingredients
2 tsp.Olive Oil
1 1/4 lbs. of lean ground turkey (or chicken)
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 bell pepper (seeded and chopped)
4 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 jalapeno (chopped)
1 (14oz) can of crushes tomatoes
1 (32oz) bottle of reduced sodium spicy tomato juice
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 (14 oz) can rinsed and drained black beans (navy or pinto can also be used)
1 Tbs. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)

Directions
1.  Heat olive oil and brown ground turkey/poultry.  Drain and set aside.
2.  Saute onion, garlic and peppers until soft (about 5 minutes).
3.  Stir in all remaining ingredients (except cilantro) and cover and simmer for 20 minutes.  
4.  Stir in cilantro and cover and simmer for 10 minutes longer.  

Makes 12-14 cups.
1 serving = 3 cups. 

Let me know how it works for you.  I would love to hear some feed back!

    1. I'm glad you found me too! :) If you like this then you will also love the crock pot turkey chili as well. I make one of them every Sunday and store in containers to have a quick "go to" meal throughout the week.

  9. I made this recipe yesterday and loved it. Having it for lunch today. I didnt see the low-sodium spicey veg. juice @ kroger so i got the regular low-sodium kind and added some hot pepper flakes to it, it was a little to hot so next time will add less pepper or none since the canin pepper was in it. This will be a regular for me. Thanks so much for a delicious soup. Wish i knew how many calories are in it. 2 thumbs up : )

  11. First of all, YOU LOOK AMAZING! I've been eating this soup for a while and I do change it up a little so I don't get bored with it. Sometimes I use a poblano pepper in place of the bell pepper for a more Mexican meal taste. Other times I skip the cumin and use basil for an Italian flavor. I love soup and never get tired of making it. I found the recipe in a magazine too, but mine is slightly different than this one. I love celery and sometimes add some to the soup.

  12. I calculated the WW points to be 8 PPV for 3 cups. Soup is delicious although I use lime instead of lemon.

  13. I just finished making a cabbage soup: Lots of cut up cabbage, tomatoes (In the summer, I use all fresh, but today I used ones that we canned as well as petite diced tomatoes and some tomato puree. In addition to the two main ingredients, I added carrots, celery, onion, brown rice, garlic, water, and cut up cooked chicken. To make it a little healthier, I took a can of black beans and put them in the blender with some water and then added them to the soup. It darkened the color a bit, but tasted great! I didn't think I could eat black beans in the soup, so that was why I pulverized them so that they would mix with the tomatoes as the broth and no one would know that they were there. I plan to have this for lunch all week, so I am hoping it will help me lose some weight.
