Eat This: Lose 50 pounds.

transformation soup cover2.jpgOur Lady of Weight Loss and I were thumbing through old recipes, looking for inspiration, when she remembered that I used to whip up huge batches of Gazpacho during my early weight loss days. Without a doubt, these recipes helped me to permanently remove over 50 pounds.
Whether you are grilling this coming July 4th / Independence Day weekend or not, make Gazpacho apart of your weekend plans. You know, so that you have something on hand that you can fill up on – that makes you all happy – that helps you to stay aligned with your goals.
Gazpacho is a cold, healthy, absolutely delightful, delicious and guilt-free Spanish soup that is popular in the summer months. It’s loaded with antioxidant rich foods that help burn fat!
Where is all began …
Its origins are from ancient Andalusia. At that time, Gazpacho was basically a mixture of stale bread, olive oil, garlic, salt and vinegar – a kind of cold bread soup.
Happy accident …
Tomatoes and bell peppers weren’t added until Christopher Columbus serendipitously stumbled upon these veggies, when he discovered America in 1492. He brought these brightly colored foods back to Europe with him, whereupon they were summarily tossed into cold salads. As Emeril would say, “Bam!”
Join with me as I whip up big batches of these fat-burning cold and refreshing summer soups!
