Chicken and corn chowder
Wanting a hearty meal with some healthy carbs but avoiding gluten-containing grains? A soup made with starchy tubers and corn will satisfy and you won’t be searching for that piece of toast or bread roll. The chicken in the soup adds valuable protein to trigger satiety so your hunger will disappear along with the soup. If on a weightloss regime, just stick to a cup of soup and enjoy with a mixed salad.
