Skinny Stuffed Pepper Soup

Skinny Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe - The Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms - This soup is a yummy way to keep on track for your fitness goals.

This is a  tweaked version of a classic Weight Watchers recipe. One cup is about 130 calories if prepared with all extra lean ground beef. If you switch out half of the ground beef for extra lean ground turkey, the calorie count goes down to about 120 and you save on saturated fat. But be careful with ground turkey because not all varieties are necessarily healthier. The 85/15 fat content ground turkey actually has more calories than the 96/4 variety of hamburger. So if you are not using extra lean, skip it.

Another tip: I also highly recommend using Classico spaghetti sauce. It has lower calories than Prego and some Ragu varieties.

Most of the time I try to make a double batch because it freezes very well. This soup is a delicious and satisfying way to keep you on the right track for your fitness goals.
