Kale soupI had never tasted kale, then my daughter made AMAZING SOUP for me from “Eat Yourself Skinny.” It’s not only good for you, but also delicious! It’s great for dinner if you’re working late and need something filling yet low in calories and fat.  And it goes well with low-fat, whole wheat crackers.

Here is the recipe below. Try it – you’ll love it!

1 medium onion, diced

Pinch of sea salt

2-3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes

7 cups vegetable broth
