soups on !

I've been making a big pot of soup every week since I started losing weight. Usually considered no points by weight watchers.. but this morning I added a piece of left over chicken, a handful of corn and 1/2 cup of rice.. so now, I probably should count it as 1 point a bowl.
so whats in here?
large box of college inn 95% fat free chicken broth.. (plus 1 can of fat free chicken broth.. needed more broth!)
15 oz can of diced tomatos
1/2 large onion chopped,
celery stalk chopped
3 small carrots chopped
1/2 large red pepper chopped
about 1 cup chopped fresh cabbage
3/4 cup of frozen peas
3/4 cup of frozen spinich
3/4 cup of frozen green beans
1/2 cup of frozen corn
1 left over cooked chicken breast
1/2 cup rice
fresh chopped parsley
poultry seasoning

I think thats everything! I just chop up and throw in what ever I have in the house. Its better after a couple days, But I start eating it right away.
A perfect low points lunch for me is a big bowl of this, about a cup of sugar free jello and fat free coolwhip beat together. a ww cheese stick, a bag of jolly time 1 pt microwave popcorn and a 1 pt weight watchers cookie! 4 points for a big lunch! And, I always have unsweetended icetea. or sometimes a diet pepsi.
This will probably be my lunch everyday this week!
Beautiful outside today.. going for a long walk later!

YUMMY!! YUMMY!! I will make some of your Veggie soup BUT without the onions. I'm allergic to them. They make my throat and tongue swell. Not Good!! :-)
Thanks for your soup recipe.
Can't wait to make it.
