Am I the only one that LOVES eating huge plates of food? What can I say? I love to eat. If you’re like me, you’ll love high volume low calorie foods because you can eat a huge plate and still have calories left for dessert 😉

Soup is one of my favorite high volume, low calorie foods. A big bowl of this Parmesan tomato soup is just 140 calories, which means you can totally add a grilled cheese sandwich.
