Fat cutter soups are becoming popular for their taste, temptation, and the benefits. I hardly eat out, because I like to know what nutrients I am putting in my body. I love cooking for my family and friends. It reminds me of Maya Angelou’s quote — I am just someone who likes cooking and for whom sharing food is a form of expression.
When you start cooking be full of love, compassionate and caring. You are going to prepare meals for your family to whom you love the most. Your spouse is your love and the children are your life. Keeping that bond in mind, be a little creative; put little sincere effort and mix ingredients thoroughly with faith. Blend it with a little tenderness, bring in a little sunshine and sprinkle your love abundantly. While serving food, forget whom you are serving! May it be your spouse, child, a family member, neighbor or an unknown person in the church or a homeless and believe at your heart that you are serving a SOUL, not the BODY. When your children would grow, they will never forget your true love. They will pay you back all your love with interest when you will need. While helping your children and spouse every day, make your home a heaven – a real living paradise. This life is too short and very precious; we have only one life – nothing else.

If you cook soup in a pressure cooker, read manufacturer’s instructions carefully. When it whistles, cook for one minute only and turn off the heat. Let it sit and cool for ten minutes before you open the lid. Soup is ready. Toss away the bay leaves. This is the No. 1 fat cutter soup. Enjoy a large bowl of sizzling hot soup many times a day.
SPECIAL NOTES: The best thing about fat cutter soup is, that you can consume this as much as you wish. It is high in nutrition and low on calories. Rather the more you consume, the more it will cleanse your system and help protect you from the disease. My mom insisted me to consume this Cabbage, Onion Skinny Soup and said, “This skinny soup will make you skinny if you eat it every day”. I was chubby when I was young and my sisters were thin. Now, I am a senior, with perfect health and weight, and I miss my mom!
