So winter to me means comfort food, and there is nothing more comforting than a big pot of homemade meatball soup. So put down those 100 calories per serving cans of soup and fire up the stove! This is my favourite soup recipe because it stays true to my desire to be fit and healthy. It’s packed with protein and veggies, is hearty, and one pot lasts me all week long.
