Diet Day 21 – the Soup Swap!

One great thing about the diet is how I have had to focus on finding fun, tasty and exciting soups to regularly replace my lunchtime ritual of Quinoa and Chicken.  I have found some great recipes, Spicy Parsnip and Pear, Carrot and Coriander, and Hot and Sour Chicken to name but a few of the more recent ones.  In addition,  I have been dreaming for a while of starting a Soup Swop here in Belgium, and have decided, now is the time (after all tomorrow, the 22nd Jan, is the fifth National Soup Swop day in the US!).

We’ve set the date for Brussels ……. Friday 4th February.  We’ve started working on the invites and postings, the location, and the theme, so it’s time to get the witches cauldrons out (Helene!) and start brewing.

More soup information to follow this weekend, in the meantime, if you’re local mark the diary and get the cook books out!  If you’re not, I will post more this weekend about how to do it in your area.  Start creating your super soup!

    A nice soup specially in winter. Bit difficult to eat with all streaks of leak and chicken but really nice. Even better after a day or two.
