Cabbage Detox Chicken Soup
No, I’m not suggesting that you should eat nothing but cabbage soup for the next week.
I’m just sharing a recipe that contains all the good stuff in terms of adding tons of nutrients, and fiber into your diet while also being super satisfying/filling and low calorie to boot! (Who doesn’t NEED these things during this upcoming swim season!??) Each of the ingredients in this soup were selected because they contain incredible healing, digestive, weight loss, and disease fighting capabilities in my opinion.
Cabbage is the star of this particular soup.
Cabbage is a very underrated vegetable.
In terms of price per cup, a report by the Department of Agriculture (USDA) has shown cabbage to be the second most economical cooked vegetable in terms of price per edible cup. Yes! Grab you some.
Most people don’t know what a powerhouse of a food cabbage really is. I’ve been eating it on the regular for the past 6 years…both in soups and roasted?
Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that increases the production of antioxidant and detoxification enzymes, and stimulates the production of liver cleansing; it actually helps your liver break down toxins so they can be more easily expelled, and it also has diuretic properties help rid your body of excess liquid, carrying toxins along with it… makes 5-6 servings
