Detox Cabbage Soup Recipe

Somehow the new year seems to go hand in hand with being more mindful of our eating habits. It’s no secret that I adore food…but I need my knuckles wrapped because my 1st choice is rarely one that’s nutritious. That’s saying it very nicely. Given a choice the last thing I’d reach for is a vegetable, especially if there’s bread, cheese or meat around. So this finds me feeling very bloated and gross right about now. Feeling like this is not something I can bear so my husband and I are focused on detoxing our bodies and one of the recipes which is our GO-TO when we do this is a Detox Cabbage Soup.

This is a simple way to jam in some veggies in a quick bowl of soup which also happens to be delicious. This is also low calorie which means I eat it all day long which keeps me feeling fuller longer and yet speeds up my digestion in a very good way.

As I mentioned, once I’ve made a batch I keep this soup in the fridge and have it daily as a snack or a side with meals. Assuming you serve it into 8 portions it is only 71 calories so go ahead, have a bowl or two and get those veggies in!

    This sounds great :) It talks about peppers in the #2 for prep? I am guessing that is an option to add bell peppers?
