Low Carb "Skinny Soup"

Easy low carb crockpot "Skinny Soup"

When the weather starts getting colder, I immediately start to crave warm and comforting foods. I love crockpot soups especially. The convenience, but also the intense flavor from cooking something all day or all night long. I started making this soup a few months ago when I needed to use my zucchini before it went bad, but didn't have much else to work with. Just 4 more simple ingredients and 12 hours later, "Skinny Soup" became my favorite low carb soup!
Now I make a big pot of this at least twice a month so I can have a healthy low carb lunch or dinner ready in a flash. I call it "skinny soup" because it's low carb, low calorie, low fat, but best of all it's healthy for you!

Ready for the easiest soup ever?!

Ingredients
3 Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast
Chopped Zucchini or Cabbage
Chicken Broth 
Chopped Onion 
*Seasoning of your choice (I used Tony Chachere's)

Directions
In a large crockpot place your chicken breast, a bunch of chopped zucchini or cabbage (your choice), chopped onion and the seasoning of your choice. Then simply fill the rest of the crockpot with chicken broth. Cook on low for 8 hours or more. 


Tips and Suggestions

* I usually leave it cooking on low for 8 to 12 hours.

*I use organic/low sodium chicken broth-usually Swanson.

*Always check labels, but most chicken broth is very low carb, low fat, and low calorie. 

*Don't worry much about the amounts of each ingredient, just put as much or as little of everything as you'd like.  

*When it comes to seasoning, just choose something to your liking and use a few tablespoons. I've tried Italian seasoning, Mexican seasoning, and I always go back to Tony Chachere's, but I'm a spicy foods lover. Season to your taste! 

*You can use either chopped zucchini, a head of chopped cabbage, or even kale if you'd like. I've tried all 3, but zucchini has always been my favorite. It makes a more substantial soup.

    1. I doubt she does. It's in the crock pot for several hours so it'll cook in there. I imagine she shredded it after cooking & before serving.

    2. No I don't. It has lots of time to cook within the 8+ hours and it basically falls apart after so I just easily break it up with a fork.

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
