Why not use zoodles in place of regular noodles in your favorite veggie soup?! They can be a delicious, healthy way to consume more vegetables in your diet. Studies show when people consume a soup as an appetizer before a main meal they eat less calories over the course of the meal, and the soup eaters also have greater weight loss success. This soup is also Reboot-friendly, so you can enjoy this in your transition in or out phase of your Reboot AND during the eating and juicing days of your Reboot program!
- 1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
- 1 large brown onion, chopped

- Add in the turmeric, carrots and pumpkin and stir for a few minutes.
- Add the remaining ingredients (except zucchini) and bring to the boil then turn down the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
- Use a spiralizer to cut the zucchini into small noodles or use a mandolin to slice finely into ribbons then chop longways.
- Add in the zoodles and mix through the soup for a few minutes then serve immediately.
