"I shall content myself with merely declaring my firm conviction that, for the seeker who would live in fear of God and who would see Him face to face, restraint in diet both as to quantity and quality is as essential as restraint in thought and speech." -Mahatma Gandhi

When it's cold out, this is my favorite meal to make. Guys don't eat soup...but they do eat soup that is full of everything! This has got your veggies, carbs, and protein and it tastes soooo good!
