Hearty & Healthy Slow Cooker Soup

I haven’t posted a lot of recipes but this one is a keeper so I thought I’d pass it along.
I found the original version of this recipe about four years ago but have altered it a bit. So, you get the Sonya version! 
Hearty & Healthy Soup
1 lb ground turkey
1 lb turkey sausage
1 onion finely chopped 
1 tsp garlic or garlic powder
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
5 cups tomato juice
2 – 14.5oz cans French style green beans, drained
1 to 2 cans sliced mushrooms, drained
1 lg can petite diced tomato
2.5 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp dried crushed basil
2 tsp dried crushed oregano
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 to 2 bay leaves
In a large skillet, cook turkey, turkey sausage, onion and garlic until meat is done. (Carrots and celery can be added to skillet and cooked with meat if preferred.) Drain. Add meat mixture to slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on low heat for 6 hours. *Remove and discard bay leaf.
This recipe is just as delicious made using the stove top and a large soup pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 2 hours or until vegetables are tender.  Again, don’t forget to remove the bay leaf. 
This is a delicious, hearty soup perfect for cold winter evenings! Leftovers freeze well, also. Enjoy!
