    Can we make our own homemade soup for lunchtimes? I know on the 1200 (?) you can have a low cal cup a soup (70 cals) but to me they are a bit no descript!

    Could you make say a tomato soup - basically just tomatos and a bit of flavouring - no salt tho? I have seen quite a lot of low cal soup recipes and was just wondering.

    I foudnd this one..... what do you think?? obviously leaving out the salt!

    It sounds lovely! I'm sure it would be OK as long as the veg amounts fit in with the allowances for the 1200 step.

    (Might try it tonite! :D :eating:)
