Points Breakdown: 0 Points
You can add any of the vegetables (or foods) from the Zero Point Food List into your soup and keep it a zero point soup. This doesn’t mean you should eat bowls and bowls (and bowls… guilty) of it, but don’t feel guilty if you go back for seconds.
Ingredients Weight Watchers Zero Point Vegetable Soup
3 cups vegetable broth
Garlic, pepper, any seasonings you like
1 head of broccoli (and/or cauliflower)

Directions Weight Watchers Zero Point Vegetable Soup
Combine ingredients on stove or in slow cooker and cook until vegetables are to the tenderness you prefer. I boiled mine on the stove and it cooked in under 30 minutes, but I’ve also cooked it in the slow cooker low and slow for about 2 hours.

Tips for detoxing other parts of your life
Drink Alcohol in Moderation
If you plan on ringing into 2019 with a few glasses of bubbly, Dr. Manish Shah, a Denver board certified plastic surgeon recommends moderating your alcohol consumption leading up to the big day. He explains, “Alcohol can dehydrate the skin and cause it to appear less fresh and vibrant, which can certainly hinder your skin care efforts.”
Cleanse your Face Every Night- You have just arrived home at 2 am from a holiday Party. It may be tempting to flop into bed without washing your face. Don’t do it! Dr. Shah says that, “Sun damage isn’t the only environmental factor you have to worry about. Small micro particles from air pollutants might just hurt your skin, too. Play it safe by remembering to take a minute to cleanse your face to remove debris that could be weakening your skin. In addition, that foundation and pressed powder you have been wearing all night can clog your pores and cause breakouts.”
Want brighter, younger-looking skin? It starts with a great at home exfoliator! Dr. Shah explains that, “As your skin replenishes itself, dead skin cells start to build up on the top layer, leaving you looking dull. Exfoliating regularly removes this layer, revealing fresh, healthy skin. Regular exfoliation also allows your moisturizer and other topical products to penetrate more deeply, making them more effective.”
Clean Your Makeup Brushes
You would not eat food on dirty dishes, would you? Applying makeup with dirty brushes is not so different. Not only will dirty brushes give you a spotty application, but they can harbor bacteria, dirt and oil, leading to acne and breakouts which necessitates piling on even more makeup to cover it up.
Add vitamin C to your routine.
Dr. Shah suggests applying several drops of vitamin C serum underneath SPF each morning to target free radical damage, help lighten brown spots, and even out your skin tone.
It may seem obvious, but when it comes to dewy, glowing skin, moisturizing is essential. “When your skin is dry, it looks dull, so hydrating ingredients can help bring back that glow,” says Dr. Shah. For skin types already prone to shine, adding moisture may seem like the last thing you need, but an oil-free hydrator with ingredients like hyaluronic acid could actually help reduce your sebum production and even out slickness into a sleek glow.

Yum. Yum! This looks like a soup my Grandma used to make! So hearty, warm and comforting. Perfect any day of the week.
I do not moisturize enough, I admit it. I do however take good care to wash my makeup brushes. I started doing that years ago and it does make a quality difference.
