I am down another pound today! I hope it keeps going down at this quick rate, but I know I will see a slow down pretty soon since I just recommitted myself. I have been adding 40 minutes of walking on the treadmill with an incline every other day so I hope that will help my weight loss too. I actually look forward to working out now which I never thought I would ever say that :) Yay!
I just kind of threw this dish together at the last minute. The beef, cheese, and bacon remind me of a bacon cheeseburger so just throw in some beef broth and a laughing cow cheese wedge to make it a bit more creamier and you have Bacon Cheeseburger Soup! I used 2.5 oz cooked ground beef and 1/2 cup of cheese, but you could use a leaner beef if you like. No need to add any additional spices. The beef broth adds enough sodium and the laughing cow cheese adds some flavor. Also, you may have noticed I used light laughing cow cheese as a condiment rather than a healthy fat. I had asked Nutrition Support if it was okay to use one wedge as a condiment since I was using a lean meat that did not require a healthy fat and they said yes. The light laughing cow garlic and herb cheese is only 1 gram of carb so it fits the criteria of being 1 condiment. I paired it with 2 cups of lettuce and Walden Farms creamy bacon dressing as an additional condiment. Very good soup, especially on those cold days coming up soon! I just love those chunks of diced tomatoes! Enjoy!
