Is this a Medifast recipe for a L&G meal? Sounds yummy!..
It is in the L&G cookbook from MF. It was VERY good, and I have three more servings for the craziness before Thanksgiving!..
Do you buy the Book here online? New at this!..
Please post the recipe or is this a plus for the book......
I will post the recipe tonight when I get home!..
Thank you so much.... looking forward to it. soup is something I really love, esp. this time of year, comfort food ya know?.
Thanks Eva I would love it too! I have never thought of having soup for my L&G. I LOVE soup but think I need to chew? for my L&G. Is it just as satisfying? I guess it is or you wouldn't have it! lol. Thanks in advance!..
Anyone have this recipe? I would love it and I know alot of others would too..
I have my own that I've posted on the boards before. Chicken soup is one of the easiest things to make. This is for 1 serving. You can adjust as needed..

2 C low fat/sodium chicken broth or stock.
1/4 onion (1 large chunk for flavor only-remove before eating).
1-2 whole garlic cloves.
1 1/2 C chopped veggies (Celery, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans whatever you like that is OP).
6 oz cubed cooked chicken..
Bring the stock and the veggie to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the veggies are tender. Add in the chicken and simmer an additional 10 minutes..
You can play around with the broth. 1/2 broth, 1/2 water, bullion, whatever you like).
Easy, filling and great for chilly nights...
Thanks for your recipe De, but why isn't anyone posting the recipe from the Medifast book? is it not allowed ?? I mean, even on amazon you can look at books and even recipe books show some recipes in them. It may encourage people, who can, pick up the book....
Where oh where is the Medifast hearty chicken vegetable soup recipe???..
This sounds really good. I might just dump my chicken salad in some hot broth today..
What? It should be great! Grilled chicken, fresh tomatoes, and spring greens tossed in as it comes off the stove so they're barely wilted...
Well, since no one is going to post the hearty chicken vegetable soup recipe, and others have kindly given their ideas, maybe I will just have to make my own... I dug into my freezer, found some spinach, celery in the fridge, zucchini, tomatoes, veggie stock in a carton....maybe give that a try. BUT I still would LOVE to checkout that recipe from MF......
Kayhill - I can't imagine that the recipe in the book would be much different than the suggestions made on this thread. There just really isn't much to making a good chicken soup except different variations on the veggies...
Mine was delicious, BTW. A little soy sauce, seasoned salt, in the broth. Simmered the chicken for a while, the fresh tomatoes for a short while, and then poured it over baby spring greens in the bowl. Yummy!!!..
Here is the recipe for the Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup. I meant to post it yesterday, but didn't have time. Enjoy!!!.
2 lbs raw skinless chicken breast cut into 1" pieces.
4 cups reduced sodium, ff broth.
2 cups mushrooms, cut in quarters.
2 cups celery, thinly diced.
1 cup red pepper.
1 cup yellow pepper.
1 cup green pepper.
1/2 cup scallions shopped.
2 Tbsp. cream.
2 Tbsp. dried parsley.
4 tsp. canola or olive oil.
1/2 tsp. thyme leaves.
1/4 tsp. ground pepper.
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced.
Trim all visible fat from chicken and cut into 1 " pieces. Clean and cut mushrooms, bell peppers, celery and scallions. Heal oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and chicken, cook until no longer pink, about 5 min. Add bell peppers, celery and mushrooms. Cook until veggies are tender, about 7 min.
Simmer until ready to serve...
Thank you !!!!.... everyone for posting your recipes.....
I thought having some 'comfort' foods might help my moods. maybe it's the holidays, (I never was a fan of thanksgiving... I think it's just about food and as someone who has fought with food her entire life, it just makes "the walls" go up for me... ya know, like I have to 'fight the battle'...etc.... that is depressing..
I just ordered alot of food and now, today I am thinking of stopping again. I dont know what is the problem with me. I use to love to exericse.. and now I cannot get my butt up to do anything.....
I need to do a major overall of my program... cut down on coffee, up my water, measure my L & G.... UGH.... anyway.....
Thanks for the recipes everyone.... heres hoping I can stay the course... seems like it's two steps forward, on back lately... sigh...
Kayhamil, some of your overhaul sounds great - upping the water and measuring the L&G, definitely. Cutting down on coffee you don't have to do unless you want to, assuming you drink it black (or with Medifast shake/pudding as creamer/sweetener). And for exercise - skip it if you're tired. Especially at first, Medifast is freakin' hard. Exercising on top of a calorie deficit diet, 900 calories a day, is tough and not right for everyone. I have chosen to be strict about the diet and casual about exercise, and it's worked great for me...
Don't give up Kay!! This is a hard thing and we all go through hard times, but don't ever give up!! what is the alternative? Your mind is messing with you but it just because our bodies go through so much. Just keep pluggin away!!..
I plan to make turkey soup with my leftover turkey. Once I measure out the number of servings of turkey, I'll add the appropriate amount of veggies.
Dee, I love the idea of placing an onion in for flavoring and then removing!..
Soup for dinner it is then! Thanks for the suggestions!..
I have a copy of the Medifast cookbook, and I have to say I'm totally not impressed with it. The recipes here in the forums are better and free. Not to mention, I've found a bunch of errors in calculating things like condiments and fats which annoys the heck out of me! Seriously, if you're going to publish, it should be accurate!! Big peeve of mine, sorry.
So if you get it, do your own calculations, just like you need to with recipes here. And yes, I know I'm as guilty of this as others are..
