Isn’t this soup pretty? I love all of the colors of red, orange, green, yellow, black and white. If color is an indication of a healthy recipe, this soup is a winner. This healthy eating challenge for me has been pretty difficult I have to admit. I tend to have a battle in my mind every night when I am deciding what to make for dinner. Everything creamy, cheesy and fattening tends to be what always sounds the best. Tonight I had to talk myself into creating something healthy and I was actually surprised when I loved this soup–without any cream and fat. I had several vegetables needing to be used up and the combination ended up being a perfect compliment to each other. The sweetness of the corn, the tender zucchini, creaminess of the avocado, brightness from the lime, the variety of beans and texture. The whole thing was deliciously healthy! If you need a low calorie, low fat meal this soup will give you that without missing any of the flavor you are craving!
