Layering Paint for an Antiqued Effect

Skinny Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup

This Skinny Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup is the perfect way 
to warm your tummy...without adding inches to it! 

Skinny Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup | Only 4 Weight Watchers Points per 1 1/2 cup serving
I love Minestrone. My high school pal's dad owned an Italian restaurant within walking distance of our school that we frequented back in those days. I always had the Minetrone Soup {plus, like twelve breadsticks...God bless a high schooler's metabolism}. Their restaurant closed a few years later and I was left scouring my mom's red & white checked cookbooks for a good Minestrone Soup recipe because I wasn't through with my Minestrone obsession {we're talking pre-Pinterest, pre-Google days, people...it was borderline archaic}. After perfecting my own little recipe {and my hair flip...ahem, I was the queen of the hair flip and collar pop in the 90s. It was scary, really.}, I ate it all the ding-dang time. Since starting my healthy plan {I really just want to type diet, y'all...but I've been on it for 18 months, so surely we all know I'm committed by now, right?}, I've missed good ol' Minestrone and started working on a skinnier version. Check out my lightened up version of this classic below...it's easy to throw it all in the slow cooker and walk away.
