So I was looking for a jump-start diet to cleans and detox my body as well as help me drop some weight FAST! I tried many different fad diets and found 1 amazing solution to my problems…. The Cabbage Soup Diet. Not only is this diet fast and effective but let me tell you, it taste great, and the key to losing the most weight is to eat as much as possible…. Now I can do that!
Believe it or not this soup taste as good as it looks!
Here Is How It Works:
The Cabbage Soup Diet helps you to beat the bloat so your belly feels flatter and smoother, by ridding our bodies of sodium.Most of us tend to eat thousands of milligrams of sodium per day – sodium makes us retain water, and our bellies feel bloated.
Here Is How You Make It:
You Will Need:
- 6 large green onions (also called “spring” onions)
- 2 green peppers
- 1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
- 3 carrots
- 1 container (10 oz. or so) mushrooms
- 1 bunch of celery
- half a head of cabbage
- 1 package spice only soup mix (In the US, Liptons is a good choice)
- 1 or 2 cubes of bouillon (optional)
- 1 48oz can Low Sodium V8 juice (optional)
- Season to taste with pepper, parsley, curry, garlic powder, etc. (Little to NO SALT!)
Slice green onions, put in a pot on medium heat and start to sauté with cooking spray. Do this until the onions are whiter/clearer in color (about 4-6 minutes).
- Cut green pepper stem end off, then cut pepper in half to take out the seeds and membrane. Cut the green pepper into bite size pieces and add to pot.Take the outer leafs layers off the cabbage, cut into bite size pieces, add to pot.Clean carrots, mushrooms, and celery, cut into bite size pieces and toss them in. Add tomatoes now, too.If you would like a spicy soup, add a small amount of curry or cayenne pepper now.For seasonings, you can use a spice soup packet of your choice (no noodles!) or use beef or chicken bouillon cubes. These cubes are optional, and you can add spices you like instead (make sure not to add much salt, if any at all).
