Tomorrow is turkey, stuffing, pie, taters, and more. Whew yum whew!
This post is a lifesaver of sorts. Well, to me it is! Since we’re in the see it and eat it phase of the natural year (ha!) I decided I wanted to be making smart decisions about food I choose to fuel my body up with when I’m no where near a turkey dinner, Christmas celebration, dinner with friends, or creamed potatoes.
I decided I wanted an ultra low calorie, high fiber, go to meal to eat throughout November, December, and January to keep myself in line. It would only be a major PLUS for it to also be anti-inflammatory and totally heart healthy.
Guess what? The soup is pretty diabetic friendly too.
CCK Detox Veggie Soup
1/2 a small head of cabbage chopped
2 chopped yellow onions
1 bell pepper chopped
8-10 baby carrots (or three regular carrots) chopped
1 bunch of celery chopped
1 can of no salt added green beans, drained
1 can of diced tomatoes, no salt added
1 quart of V8 reduced sodium tomato juice
8 oz of chicken or beef broth (you can skip this if it doesn’t fit your lifestyle)
This is easy –
After you have chopped all your vegetables add them to your stock pot. Pour in your onion soup mix packet. Next pour in your liquids. Add water to continue the process of covering up your solids. Cook on medium low until the vegetables of cooked.
Everyone in my family likes this soup except the five year old who is chicken noodle of die.
This soup has extremely low caloric value, a good dose of fiber/vitamins/and minerals. It is heart healthy and waistline happy too.
