If you're looking at Spring with a few extra lbs, I found a recipe from Trisha Sprouse that will help you get to where you need to be and banish belly bloat in a hurry! Filling, healthy, and very tasty. This soup will leave you feeling content and satisfied for hours without the calories. And all you have to do is throw all the ingredients into one pot?
Add the onion, garlic, celery, carrots, lentils and cauliflower to the crock-pot. Stir in the turmeric, ginger, coriander, cumin, bay leaves, thyme and vegetable broth. Set the crock to high, and allow the soup to cook for 6 hours until the lentils are soft.
After 6 hrs remove the bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Use a potato masher, stick blender or the back of a ladle to mash up about half of the lentils in the crock-pot. This will thicken the soup.
Add the baby kale or spinach to the crockpot and mix the greens into the soup until wilted. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper, garnish with chopped parsley and serve!
Full of protein, fiber and lots of anti-inflammatory ingredients, you'll be saying buh-bye to that belly bloat in no time.
