low fat celery soup

Low fat celery soup

today some fresh celery was sent to me from the farm and i made a very low fat celery soup.....Low In Calories
Not all versions of celery soup are low in calories. Opt for one made with broth rather than one made with creamor butter. This will dramatically reduce the number of calories you take in when you eat celery soup. One large stalk of celery has only 10 calories, making it a good addition to soup when you are trying to lose weight. Combine celery with other vegetables to create a filling bowl of soup that is low in calories, but high in nutrients
i made a very simple low fat celery soup but it was delicious!!here goes the recipe..
teaspoons butter
2 cups diced celery
