The onion suspect

So I was excercising in September and basically quit after my birthday. Didn't loose any weight but had a better looking ass. Then some how lost weight on the cruise to Vegas to a nice 120ish can't remember. Then being in Vancouver for about week gain massive 8-10 lb
*super sigh*
I don't know when I started to loose weight recently but I think it maybe from living at BB house for two ish weeks. During that time we ate sukiyaki that we made almost every night with lots of vegetable/frozen tofu and half or entire box of thinly sliced beef and a few fish balls, i recently started to like thinly chopped cabbage cooked in sukiyaki sauce and a pat of butter. Not to complete softness but with some crunchy ness too. Of course also half a onion thinly sliced.

So recently been craving French onion soup from Tim hortens except every time I go there they don't have it. I went to 4 different Tim hortens to finally get it. Finally just fed up with it. Which conveniently marked the day I learn to make French onion soup!!
Recipe from ???? Altered by viki

Onions are very good for you! High in fibre and nutrients. As well gives you lots of energy therefor keeps hungry pains away
Only 60 cal too
Search good things about onions and why onions could help you loose weight.

Only the fresh organic ingredients will make this soup super awesome
You could use canned condense stock which I've been using
But tonight going to get freshly made stock!!
Well made baguette gives plus point too so don't cheap out on only a dollar because a bread with lots of air pockets inside isn't bread at all
