“This recipe is basically a Borscht adapted from the CHIP (Coronary Health Improvement Project) Optimal Diet Cookbook. I kicked it up a notch and turned into into more of a stew than a soup but it still fits well within the guidelines of the CHIP program. If you are at all interested in lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and weight - do check into this very affordable program out of Loma Linda. **Beeflike seasoning is a vegetable based "beef" flavoured boullion - I recommend one from a health food store as they are much lower in sodium than the brands you find at the grocer. Braggs is like a soy sauce but much lower in sodium. Also found in health food stores.”
