Tomato Cabbage Soup

Remember the fad Cabbage Soup Diet? It was popular a few years ago, and like most fads, it pretty much just faded. The essence of the diet was eating cabbage soup 2-3 time a day along with a lot of other fruits and vegetables and an allotted list of foods added each day, like brown rice and chicken. People loved this diet when it came out because it was a great way to lose weight easily in a short amount of time. This Tomato Cabbage Soup recipe is inspired by that diet soup.

Now the downhill of the diet, is that the weight stops going downhill eventually. That’s because most people end up missing the food groups they’ve excluded from their diet. And that’s the worst way to lose weight. In my experience, what happens after a few days is you realize your body is missing key nutrients to stay healthy, and it leaves you craving the foods you’ve avoided >> then the weight piles on again.

When I heard about this a few years ago, I also tried it and created my version of the soup with this Tomato Cabbage Soup. Well, I never actually followed the diet more than one day, but I fell in love with the soup, so I still make it often!

This Vegan Detox Cabbage Tomato Soup is an easy, low-calorie, healthy soup that is perfect for anyone dieting, cleansing or detoxing, without a sacrifice of flavor!

Yes, the tomato cabbage soup is low in protein, low in complex carbs and low in fats, so it may leave you craving something more satisfying. But I think it works wonderfully as a soup for lunch or an appetizer at dinner when you want something light or want to detox after a weekend of heavy eating. But you need to make sure to get key nutrients in the other foods you eat through the day.

I really hate any diet that limits any food group, so I am not a proponent of the cabbage soup diet, but I am 100% proponent of my tomato cabbage soup.

I hope you love this healthy-ish feelgood Tomato Cabbage Soup recipe. If you make it, please leave me a comment telling me how you like it, or use hashtag #feelgoodfoodie on Instagram so I can see your recreations.

    This was so delicious. Thank you for a perfect recipe! I added chickpeas/garbanzo beans because I wanted to add more texture to chew, but I understand that then it no longer is a light, detox soup.
