On a diet to try to figure out if some of the fibro is related to food additives, also to lower BP and yes, lose weight! Anyway, right now it is really strict, only so much protein, veg, fruit and breadsticks. NO sugars whatsoever. Doing ok so far...fresh foods taste really great, btw. After a couple more weeks to stabilize, I will slowly add things back in to see how I react to them. My goal is to cut out sugars and processed food additives. Ok, I won't cut out sugars forEVER, but I don't want to be eating sugar that's hidden in food (which is nearly everything. Gawds.) If I do have a sweet in a few weeks, I'll know it's the only sweet I am eating. So there, food industry. I thwart you!

Stevia is allowed though. I *heart* stevia.

So I was looking around for different ideas (no oils, fats or butter allowed, no starches) so it calls for creativeness sometimes to jazz things up, and I found this. I am SO happy because it fulfilled my need for something creamy. Posting now to add to my recipe memories, because I will have this even after!!

Extremely Easy Cream of Chicken Soup


allotted amount of chicken, cut up. (4.5 oz in my case)
1 - 2 cups water
1 C celery, cut up
1 T dehydrated onions or 1/2 T onion powder
3 garlic cloves or 1/2 T garlic powder
fresh basil
fresh parsley
fresh chives
white pepper
salt
Mrs. Dash's garlic herb combo

*all herbs, salt and pepper are to taste


Put all into a pot, boil until celery is tenderish
pop into blender on pulse speed until smooth(ish)
return to stove and simmer 10 min.

OMG so good. I'm like all happyish and shit right now.
