First, the Soup: Healthy Soup, Stew, and Chili Recipes

Cooking, Food & Wine

Author: Joan Holcomb

First, the Soup: Healthy Soup, Stew, and Chili Recipes (a Scrumptious Low-Calorie Recipes Cookbook)

Several studies have shown that people who consume soup before a meal eat measurably fewer calories during the meal than those who have nothing prior to mealtime. Soup can be filling and satisfying without having an excess of calories. It can, in itself, be a meal (or a snack).

This cookbook has soup recipes which are generally lower in calories than their full-calorie counterparts. Avoiding fillers such as cornstarch and including healthy ingredients makes them more nutritious and less fattening. Even better, the recipes taste great, too! Time after time I’ve received compliments on these recipes from people who are watching their weight, and people who aren’t (and seem surprised that they’re eating a lower-calorie recipe).

My Alien Self: My Journey Back to Me

If I told you I’d been to twenty-four Countries (twenty-one by the time I was twenty-two), that I’d worked in Japan for nine months, toured Australia for six months, enjoyed seven months in Thailand and met and campaigned for the Orangutan in Borneo, you might think that I was pretty lucky. But if I added to that a mix of child rape, mental health problems, promiscuity, drug taking, alcohol abuse, eating disorders, self-harm, violence, mood swings, obsession, jealousy, loss of self worth, being raised by a mentally ill mother, bankruptcy, thyroid and gastro problems and public masturbation in school at age nine, then I am not sure what you’d think.

This is my life, my story; my journey back to me from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD and Borderline Personality Disorder – mental illness which manifested during my life and came out ‘to it’s peak’ in my thirties.
