Eating a fibre-rich diet helps to lose weight and keep your already healthy body size right where it is.  Fibre has the ability to create a sense of satiety after meals, aka fullness, without the calories of more processed or animal-based meals.

An easy way to incorporate more fibre with low calories is to eat vegetable soup, especially great in the colder winter months

Here is a simple recipe to get you going.

Vegetable soup

1 cup of sweet potato chopped
2 red onions chopped
1/2 cup red capsicum chopped
1 cup of chopped broccoli
1 cup kale chopped
2 celery sticks chopped
10 cherry tomatoes
4 tbsp miso paste
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tbsp crushed garlic
1 tbsp diced onion
1 tbsp thyme
1 tbsp rosemary
1 litre of water
Lemon juice to taste

Place all ingredients in large pot. Add the water, miso, herbs and spices.

Cook over medium-high heat for 5 -10 minutes. Reduce heat and cook another 20 minutes or until ready. 

Use hand blender if you desire smoother texture

Add lemon juice just before serving.
