Expert Tips

*To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350º oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

“I eat a broth-based soup every single day, even weekends, because it fills me up and I can eat a lot. This turkey soup, being low-fat and low in calories and carbs, is great!” Nancy D.

Soy milk is a great alternative to regular milk because it gives you many of the same nutrients, and studies show that soy protein, when eaten in the context of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
