I did add in some barley, but you can swap it out for rice, pasta, or eliminate it all together. But I find a well balanced soup will keep you full longer, while burning more fat.

You can easily lower sodium by getting “no salt added” beans and by getting low sodium vegetable broth.

I’d also recommend eliminating the salt all together if it is a problem for you. A good squeeze of fresh lemon juice will give it the zing you need.
