Default Soup, Salad, & 2 mini Mex Pizza w/photos & recipes

Here is one of my favorite meals. I like to eat my dinner leisurely- soup, then relax until I am hungry again, then the salad, and maybe another hour later the main course. I usually eat two servings of the soup and salad, so I say this one is under 500, the way I eat it.

Put oil in pan, dice and saute garlic and onion. Sprinkle desired amt of red pepper flakes. Add diced chayote, and half of cilantro. Cover with 2 cups of chicken or veggie broth, and simmer until soft. Use immersion blender or upright, then salt and pepper to taste.
