Low Fat Celery Soup

Not all versions of celery soup are low in calories. Opt for one made with broth. 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.
