I promised you I would find some soup recipes that are low-fat and low in sodium.  My friend from school has a superb book with TONS of recipes if you're a soup lover:  Cooking Light Soup.  I'm going to ask for this for Christmas because I love to eat warm things during the wintertime. Here's one that I can't wait to try: Baked Potato and Bacon Soup (237 cal, 7.8g fat, 394mg sodium).

5 1/4 lbs. baked potatoes

7 slices turkey bacon

4 1/2 cups chopped onion

1 tsp. salt

1 bay leaf

5 garlic cloves, minced

7 1/2 cups fat-free milk

3/4 tsp. black pepper

3 cups fat-free, less sodium chicken broth

1/3 cup chopped parsley

1 1/4 cup green onions chopped

1 1/4 cup shredded reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook potatoes for 1 hour.  Partially mash them with skins.  Crisp the bacon in a skillet.  Crumble.  Set aside.  Add onion to bacon pan and saute for 5 minutes.  Add salt, garlic, and bay leaf.   Saute 2 mins.  Add, potato, milk, broth, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, simmer 2 minutes.  Stir in parsley.  Top with bacon, green onions, and cheese.  (Yields about 18 servings: about 1 cup of soup, 1 teaspoon bacon, 1 tablespoon of cheese).
