Light Spinach Egg Drop Soup

This Spinach Egg Drop Soup is my kind of soup for the warm weather, light, super healthy and low in calories. And not only war weather, but also all year round.

I must have said it before, if not, I will say it out loud now: I do not believe in diets. Not at all, not for a single second. Yes, there are loads of diets out there that claim to make you slim and supermodel-looking in no time. Yeah, right! What a joke!

I honestly think that diets only mess up with one’s body and trick you into thinking that you are on the right path, but what really happens is that your body is deprieved of essential nutriets and fat that are vital for a good functiong.

Honestly, if you eat a balanced meal and make sure you keep active, rather than being a couch potato, the results will be even more impressive and quick than if you follow the so called miraculous diets. Well, at least that is my view on this matter.

Fresh spinach to make spinach egg drop soup

This soup, for example, is loaded with all the nature’s goodness, fresh spinach, spring onions, a few other veggies and an egg, and you get a super healthy soup that can boast your immune system and fully hydrate you on a hot day.

You can even eat it cold, since there is no fat in it. How simple is that! Frozen spinach can be used instead of the fresh one, the soup will be as nutritious.

But since I am enjoying my holiday in Romania, I get to use fresh veggies straight from mum’s veggie garden. How I love life in the countryside! I know that you have to work so hard, but then it is so worth it.

If you love spinach as much as I do, I also have these seriously delicious Spanakopita Triangles or Spinach Roll Ups with Ham and Cream Cheese. Or Pasta with Shrimp and Spinach. And the list is rather long.
