I take a rotisserie chicken from the market, strip the meat (discard bones and skin and fat) and cube it. Add a can of salsa, a box of (or homemade!) chicken broth, 2 cups of water, the juice from a lime, salt and pepper. I put in a can of black beans, but if you're doing low-carb you can skip it. Everything is cooked, so just warm it up and let the flavors meld a bit. Fast and delicious. I serve it with a fresh salad.

I use the rotiserie chickens too! I buy one every week and strip it to have in the fridge when I have no time. Make quesidillas using low carb tortillas, top salad, chicken salad and lettuce wraps and on and on. Yes it is better to cook my own chicken but I have little time so it's a great backup when time is short. Great for the kids on busy nights as well.

For a quick low carb soup...I take a cup of college inn ff and low sodium broth, add some chopped carrots and celery (buy the ready to go stuff too) and once the carrots are al dente I add in some dice chicken and warm through. Using 3 oz of chicken (mixed white and dark) and a 1/4 cup veggies comes to 215 cals, 24g protein and 1.7 net carbs and is very filling. Of course it's even healthier to use cooked chicken breast. When I think ahead I make up about 4 servings using a couple large chicken breasts. Then you can play with it once out of induction. I'll add spinach, beans, etc...

I never thought of egg drop soup !! what a great idea. I ended up on cabbage and sausage soup minus the potato I usually add just bc I have all the ingredients. Going to go with the rotisserie chicken tomorrow. There is enough left over for dinner with a side salad. Can wait. !!

I personally like the boring broth soup with cheese and pickle on the side. Had it for lunch today as a matter of fact.

I'm going to try this one tonight: Mexican Style Soup http://fatsecret.com/recipes/mexican-style-soup/Default.aspx

Also, I really like this one from Linda's Low Carb site: Texas Chili http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/texas_chili.html. I know it says "chili" but it's more of a tomato broth base than a thick chili.

And: "Split Pea" Soup (It's bizarre in that instead of split peas it's made with frozen cauliflower and green beans but you really can't taste the difference!) http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/split_pea_soup.html

for the past few weeks I have been making brocoli & cauliflower soup.

Just boil a heap of brocoli, cauliflower and garlic.
Once soft blend it all up.
Then I taste test it and add herbs and spices to taste. I always add heaps of chilli because I love it and it's so great for weight loss
Start weight 20/04/2013 = 240kg Goal weight 120kg (total loss 120kg)

It won't happen over night, but if you don't give up it WILL happen.
