Healthy No-Cream Corn Chowder: Recipe

Corn Chowder is a great, hearty dish but can be higher in calories than desired. As the cooler months start to set in, I start becoming more conscious about creating healthy meals which satisfy my desire for warmth without making my jeans tighter. This dish is a quick healthy soup you can make on a rainy day or after work when all you want to do is hibernate.
