Soups and broths are among some of the most popular weight loss recipes because they are easy to prepare and filling.
Packed with fibre, vitamins and minerals, this Healthy Soba Noodle and Vegetable Broth can be included in your healthy eating plan regularly.
Made from buckwheat flour and containing less calories and fat than many other noodle varieties, soba noodles can be found in the Asian section of most mainstream grocery stores.
On another note, buckwheat is naturally gluten-free, so buckwheat noodles are a good option for those with gluten-intolerance.
This simple recipe is a good option for lunch or dinner, and can be adapted to suit different tastes. Just add your favourite vegetables or low-calorie condiments and simmer!
