All these soups are sounding delicious, Janiece! I may have to try one or two in the next couple of weeks. Right now I'm working on eating seasonally (a.k.a. soups and stews in the winter and salads and/or raw veggies in the summer). I LOVE the stew my brother makes but can only eat it so many times in one week!
I always crave soup in the winter. We are having very cold weather here now so it really hits the spot. Let me know if you try one and if you like it.
Avocado is a fruit. My brother thinks it's because it has its own seeds (which makes sense for a tomato, too). Not being a part of WW, if I find something healthy I'll post it but won't know the points value.
We can help you with that, LizBeth.
