I’m not a happy camper but I have no one to blame but myself. I’m ok because I lost the weight before and the holidays were a minor set back. With being sick, work stress, kids being sick, awesome Yule food and mead combined with little to no treadmill time I thought it would be worse. I’m just really hard on myself. This year I would like to reach my goal weight. So new year, new back on track. I have more than enough to keep me busy so I will start all over from here. I did, however, manage to make pea soup and with a little improvement, it could be one to keep in my freezer.
- 1oz bag frozen peas (or whatever size you have one hand)
- Chicken broth (I used at least 3 cups of fat-free)
- 1 yellow onion chopped
- salt and pepper to taste (please do this after-I added too much)
I topped mine with plain non-fat Greek yogurt but you could use sour cream
Boil everything together until the onions are tender. Blend and season to taste. My serving size was 1 cup and I had a pita sandwich on the side and it was SO yummy! If you try this let me know if there are any changes that you made and what you thought of it. Here’s to a more strict and productive week.

Happy Thursday everyone!
