  1. All these 5:2 diet recipes are making me feel soooo guilty, I really should give it another go. I didn't work for me a couple of times I tried last year but I didn't really try for long enough. Soups are definitely the way forward on it though!

  6. So many broccoli soups are loaded up with cheese and cream - this is refreshing to find a soup without either that still satisfies and nourishes!
