Notes:  I couldn't find "low-sodium" veggie broth so I just bought regular.  Same for the Black-Eyed "low-sodium".

Reviews:  I ate this by myself and I actually really liked it.  I thought it would be boring, but I finished my whole bowl and wasn't hungry afterwards.  I chose to chop the greens in small pieces because the thought of big pieces of greens grossed me out, haha!  This would be great for lunch as well.  I'll post pics of this as well!!  (found pic online!)
BF Review:  He liked it!  He needed something else with it because it just wasn't enough for dinner...maybe better as a lunch meal. 

Here is the link to this recipe...I didn't realize it was online as well!

This was very good especially when I got home last night after Toning & Zumba and needed to eat something healthy. It filled me up but didn't make me feel over full. Just what I needed.
