The new cabbage soup diet can help you to jump start a healthy diet plan and shed a few ponds at the same time. However the new cabbage soup diet should not be followed for more than 7 days at a time due to the small amount of calories present.
The new cabbage soup diet plan can be found right here on this site and one may eat as much of the soup as they like.
The new cabbage soup diet recipe is as follows:
6 large green onions
2 green peppers
1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
3 Carrots 1 Container (10 oz. or so) Mushrooms
1 bunch celery
1/2 head cabbage
1 package Lipton soup mix
1or2 cubes bouillon (optional)
1 48oz can V8 juice (optional) Season to taste with salt, pepper, parsley, garlic powder, etc.
Slice the green onions, put in pot and sauté with cooking spray.
Cut green pepper stem end off and cut in half, remove seeds and membrane.
Cut the green-pepper into bite size pieces and put in pot.
Remove the outer leaf layers from the cabbage and discard, cut the remaining cabbage into bite size pieces, put in pot.
Clean carrots cut into bite size pieces put in pot.
Slice Mushrooms into thick slices (otherwise they will disappear in the soup). Put in pot.
If you would like a spicy soup, add a small amount of cayenne pepper (red pepper) now (1/3 teaspoon is quite a bit as the soup will get spicier as it cooks further).
You can use beef or chicken bouillon cubes for seasonings. They have all the salt and flavors you will need. Use about 12 cups of water (or 8 cups and the V8 juice), cover and put heat on low.
Let soup simmer until vegetables are tender. (two hours works well). Taste and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
Always check with your doctor before beginning any diet and don’t follow the cabbage soup diet for more than 7 days in a row.
