He got used to it because I love soup! I could eat it for lunch or dinner most nights of the week. I don't always make him eat soup, today I made him a pasta dish as well so he had a choice.
Here is the soup I made today:
Chicken and vegetable soup
1 lb cooked smoked chicken- shredded
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup fat free Italian dressing
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can pinto beans
1 tbl better than bullion chicken
4-6 cups water
In Dutch oven or large pot put dressing and bring to a boil. Add chopped veggies. Cook until tender. Add remaining ingredients and bring back to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.

I try to get 20g of protein at each main meal and this not only makes my tummy happy but it also gives me the protein I need.
The dietitian told me to go up to 900 calories so my body doesn't go into starvation mode. I'm trying, it's not an overnight process.
Next up for me will be Italian wedding soup with fresh spinach and mini meatballs. Mmmm I'll post the recipe when I make it.
