The Saddest Soup Ever

What do you eat when you are lonely, busy, hungry and trying to follow the 1972 Retro WW Program?

The answer is: Quick Soup for One.

If you think the recipe title is depressing, just wait until you hear the ingredients:

6 ounces tomato juice
1 envelope instant broth mix
French Style string beans

Bring tomato juice to a boil. Add other ingredients, heat and serve immediately.


Before you start crying in your Pyrex bowl, just remember - you are not alone. There are lots of other Retro WW ladies out there who are just like you. It's going to be okay.

So even as you eat your Quick Soup for One - just imagine you are sharing that hot bowl of tomato juice & beans with a coast-to-coast network of weight loss buddies.

Kinda gives you the warm fuzzies, doesn't it?

Seems like it's at least a good BASE to a soup. But I'm no soup aficionado, so I could be very, very wrong here lol

Ooooh, yuk! I have no love for this soup, and i doubt it has much love for me either!!

I think I would substitute canned asparagus for the beans...

I can see this as a good base for a soup. I did the WW program in the '70s but don't remember how we counted veggies. The good news is we are no longer in the '70s and our knowledge about food and nutrition has improved. I am a Lifetime member who just interviewed to be a leader. I would take this soup and add no point veggies to it and we might have a terrific 0 Point Plus soup!

It could be worse... you could have made a sad sandwich with a "twofer" bread slice and some cottage cheese...

I think I would rename it Lazy Ass soup because you have to be the laziest ass going to make it on a regular basis! Why not save some effort and open up a can of Campbell's?

Ah, but if you don't serve immediately, you can experience the joy of LUKEWARM soup for one!

I don't think this is such a bad dish, but I would add some other veggies to it. And @Pam, sometimes a person is pushed for time. That doesn't make him or her lazy
