This soup is amazing regardless of what your goals are!  I always have a huge batch of soup in the fridge so I have a quick and easy go to lunch or snack.   This soup is loaded with veggies and a little bit of rice for a delicious (21 day fix approved) lunch!

This soup also makes a great base for your leftovers!  If you have any leftovers you can them to this soup for a quick and hearty meal.  Meat, ground turkey or quinoa are perfect additions!

If you haven’t heard of the 21 day Fix, it’s a weight loss program based on healthy eating (of real food), portion control and exercise (more information here). Since it’s January I have decided to kick off the new year with healthy eating and I will be sharing some of the 21 Day Fix program approved meals I am making!

I count this as 1 Green and 1 yellow for a lunch that really fills me up!

Note: I sometimes add 1 tablespoon of tomato paste to boost up the flavor. It’s not technically 21 day fix approved however each serving would have 3/4 teaspoon which is approx 8 calories and 1.5g carbs.

    1. If you are cooking this in the slow cooker, I would suggest using uncooked rice. Add all ingredients and cook on high for 4-5 hours or until vegetables and rice are tender. Add the broccoli/zucchini in the last 60 minutes to keep it from getting mushy.

  1. I think I’m missing something! Instructions say to add beans but I don’t see beans in the ingredients?cant wait to try this- what beans should I add though? Thanks!

  2. Does this freeze well? I am wanting to make some extra to freeze for winter. Wondering if I need to change anything in order to freeze the soup.

  3. Will it taste the same with vegetable broth? I want to make this for my sister but shes a vegetarian

  4. This is my kind of comfort food! Seriously all I want to eat right now is soup and this looks like the perfect way for me to get my cozy food fix! :)

  5. I cannot WAIT to make this! My coach does 21 day fix and raves about it – maybe it’s time to try it out!

  6. This reminds me of your Weight Loss Soup and I loved that one and love this one too! I always have soup in the fridge during the winter that I can heat up for an instant warm and healthy snack!
