Lemon Rice Soup Recipe

If you’re dieting in the new year, whatever diet you’re following probably has some soup suggestions for you. And you’re probably thinking that soups for weight loss might just be another common factor of fad diets.


The truth is the composition of soup is mostly liquid which helps you feel fuller faster, thereby reducing your appetite for more food or reducing your caloric intake all together. And when you load that soup up with vegetables, it’s a win/win situation!

The zing in the Lemon Rice Soup is the lemon. The lemon is very refreshing and an appetite stimulant (hello diet-friendly soup!), making that zucchini, carrots and celery taste even better.
