Dude. I've been eating a lot of food lately. And we're going away for spring break. To swim.
Which means swimsuits.
Not forever. Just for a few days.
I've made the cabbage soup from the cabbage soup diet a bunch of times----I know there's a lot of controversy about it. I don't follow the whole "eat as many bananas on day whatever" that the "original" diet tells you to do.
I just drink the soup for a few days to clean out and somewhat detoxify. Cabbage is supposed to be helpful in reducing water retention, and by all means, I'm up for some of that right about now.
--small head of cabbage
--handful of baby carrots
--bunch of celery
--1 red bell pepper
--2 green onions
--1 t minced garlic
--1 t of your favorite seasoning blend
--1/4 t red pepper flakes (optional)
--4 cups vegetable broth
--4 cups water
--chop all vegetables into bite-sized chunks and plop into crockpot
--cover with liquid
cook on low for 8-10 hours
This doesn't taste very good. It's bland.
I've added onion soup mix or a can of tomatoes in the past--but that doesn't really do much either.
But I'm feeling vain, so I'm going to eat it for lunch for a few days anyway.
