Curried Lentil Soup With Pita

400 Calories

Stir 1⁄4 teaspoon curry powder into 1 1⁄2 cups low-sodium lentil soup (such as Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup-Light in Sodium), and heat in microwave. Top with 2 tablespoons low-fat Greek yogurt; serve with 1 whole-grain pita, cut into triangles. Enjoy 1⁄2 cup grapes on the side.

Skinny secret! Start your meal with soup, and you’ll eat 20 percent fewer total calories than you would if you skipped the soup. Why? Soup fills you up. (It could translate into a 10- to 15-pound loss in a year.)
