Fact of the matter is I FAILED that one big time.
Today my co-worker gave me another detox diet that sounds more like my style... Cause there is actual FOOD involved.
Plan B: The CABBAGE SOUP detox "diet"
So many things I already like about it and I haven't even started... So I figured I would share the recipe and my experience in making it all happen this evening.
CABBAGE SOUP RECIPE goes a little something like this-
*6 large green onions
*2 green peppers
*1 or 2 cans/jars of tomatoes (diced or whole)
*1 container (10oz. or so) mushrooms
*1 bunch of celery
*half a head of cabbage
*1 package spice only soup mix (liptons is a good choice)
*Season to taste with pepper, parsley, curry, garlic powder, etc. (Little to NO SALT)
Slice green onions, put in a HUGE pot on medium heat and start to saute' with cooking spray. Do this until the onions are whiter/clearer in color (about 4-6 minutes).
|Saute' green onions... Yum!|
|Green Bell Peppers fresh from my local Albertsons.lol|
|Saute' onions and peppers.|
As you can see I used a whole cabbage... I heart cabbage, so I wanted extra in my soup.
|I used a whole cabbage fresh from the produce at Albertsons too.|
|Cabbage added... Yum!|
|Added carrots,mushrooms, celery and canned tomatoes.|
Use about 12 cups of water, cover and put heat on low. Let soup simmer for a long time- about 2 hours or until veggies are tender.
|Cabbage soup smelling wonderful as it simmers.|
|My lunch/dinner for the next 7 days.|
|My beverages for the my everyday life.|
