This morning I had the privilege to sample Marianne's recent creation:  her take on the New Basic Slimming Soup featured in For Women First Magazine.  Because it seemed so popular among Listener Friends and Townsquare Media employees, I decided to write up a quick review on it.

Advertised as a soup that is delicious AND can help to lose up to 10 pounds in 3 days (by eating twice a day), the New Basic Slimming Soup seemed too good to be true.  Marianne brought in a sample after her and Bob gave it rave reviews.  With high expectations, I threw it in the microwave and went to town.

Before I even took it out of the microwave, the office kitchen was already filled with yummy aromas of onions, peppers and spices.  My first taste had a nice, delicious kick to it - almost like a chilli flavor.  Marianne used ground turkey as her meat and it was a good choice - and also helped to keep it lean.  Among other ingredients, she used mushrooms, squash and garbanzo beans - not exactly my regular diet - but they came together with the red pepper and other foods to give it a nice consistent flavor.

The soup tasted even better considering I ate it on the coldest day of the season and needed a nice hot meal to warm me up.  I can't speak on the weight-loss claims - but I do know that I could definitely eat this on a consistent basis - and I didn't feel like a slug afterward that usually follows a heavy soup or chilli.  In fact, I felt energized and ready to continue my workday.


Overall I give the New Basic Slimming Soup 9 out of 10 squashes - very tasty and plenty of room to add your own creative twists.  Check out the full recipe HERE and discover other unique ideas from For Women Magazine.
