I like to cook. I also like to eat healthy.

However, I have moments where I can barely be bothered to chop vegetables, let alone whip together a whole meal.

On those nights, I usually reach for soup and call it a day. BUT – the thing is that store bought canned soups are often lurking with dangerous ingredients, such as added sodium (and possibly MSG), BPA and GMO’s.

Therefore, it is easier – and better – to throw together a pot of soup and freeze the leftovers for days the that you don’t feel like cooking.

This lentil soup is packed with nutrients, suitable for vegans, easy to digest and will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
