*Spicy Veggie Steak Soup* (Diabetic Recipe)

Today is a soup for the diabetics. It's low carb, low fat, but seems to be a little high in sodium. Its not to bad, I checked my nutrition calculator and discovered it doesn't have information on low sodium beef broth. So I believe that's why it calculated so much sodium. This soup is really tasty. A nice salad will go good with this and maybe some sugar-free jello for desert. Enjoy. I will be looking into getting updates on my nutrition data base.
