The Best of January

No surprise that a veggie-loving cook follows the four seasons. Fresh tomatoes in winter? No way. Butternut squash in summer? Not on your life.

Still, January warrants special thought when picking the month's favorites, the one soup and the one vegetable that together simply shout winter and holler holiday letdown. And sure enough, they do.

Weight Watchers Zero Points Vegetable Soup
  • Easy to make.
  • Easy on the holiday-gorged palate.
  • Life-giving vegetables.
  • Low-carb and low-calorie.
  • Zero points or one point in the Weight Watchers world, depending on how you count.
Yup: perfect for January.

Girds the winter soul for the remaining months of cold and snow. (In Missouri, where it's been in the 50s to the 70s in January, for heavens sake, northern sorts like me still live in hope.)

January perfect.

  1. I don't see any trolls here.

    What? Am I the only guy with a troll?

  2. This is amazing--I've been meaning to try that soup ever since you posted it! I will definitely put it on the short list now!

    And I'll try the turnips, too. As soon as I am able to differentiate them from rutabagas (which I hate).

    And about that proposition, I WILL email you soon, AK. It's just been an incredibly very bad busy week. :-)
