So, I have had a few requests for ‘on plan’ soup recipes, so I decided to play around with one of my favorites. The hard thing with soups is being able to devide servings evenly. I think that if I had to do this recipe over, I would add in my turkey AFTER I serve up my bowl. That way I am sure to get the correct protein amount.
I weighed every item (including water), and then figured out the calories per 100 grams. I was shocked that I was able to have a hearty bowlful and it was only around 100 calories. Obviously, I then added more protein to my serving to ensure I had enough.
1 lb (448g) 99% fat free ground turkey
1 LG (46oz/1394g) 100% tomato juice
1 sm can (305g) 98% ff Cream of Celery Soup
700g Shredded Carrots
4 cups (900g) Water
Total in grams: 4295
Per 100 grams= approx 43 servings

A bowlful was around 100 calories. YUMMY!!
