anyone use the cabbage soup diet recipe on DD?

I hate veggies and I know I am not getting enough. Was thinking of making the cabbage soup recipe for DD to help me get some veggies down. It's about 71 calories per cup. I'm not really into variety so much on DD as I am bang for the calorie. Anyone else try this? Potential problems?

I love a bowl of warm cabbage soup with some bacon and lots of butter - ANY day, especially right now with the cooler weather. I don't know what recipe you use, but I make a cajun cabbage soup that has 40 cals and 4g net carb per 1.5 cups before the butter or bacon..

Oh. My. Goodness.
Cabbage Soup has transformed my JUDDD WOE!
I started the cabbage soup about a month ago (posted here)
I was really struggling with hunger and food choices on DDs. It was stressing me out to try to find the foods that would satisfy. I had heard people saying they eat lots of veggies on DD, but the idea of just munching on raw veggies just didn't appeal to me.

So I made a huge pot of cabbage soup. I figured up the calories at ~50/cup.
Now, I don't even think about what to eat on DD. I just eat soup, all day. I usually end up eating about 5 cups of it and hunger has become a non-issue.
The side benefit is that I'm getting LOTS of veggies!

Here is what I made this morning:
1 large head of cabbage chopped/or coarsely shredded
1/2 bunch of Kale with stems removed (sometimes I use a box of frozen spinach)
2 med onions chopped
2 green peppers chopped
10 carrots sliced
2 Zucchini
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 bag of frozen green beans
1 64 oz bottle tomato juice
1 small can tomato paste
1 pk Lipton Onion Soup mix
dash of Worcestershire
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook it all, adding the zucchini towards the end.
This makes a huge pot (my biggest stockpot) but I eat over about a week, freezing more than that amount in ~ 2 quart portions.

I love it with a generous whop of Tabasco!

You could put some kidney beans in for some more substance (and great fiber source), but I haven't felt the need to and don't want to worry about the additional starch.

In fact, my DD are typically ~350 since starting this - and I don't feel deprived at all.

Thanks for the recipe

I think that I have all the ingredients.
Will put a pot on this morning. It's gray and drizzly and just
right for a pot of DD soup.

I'm stuck here without a car, my dd just texted that she's working 3 more hours..
And I have no onions or tomato juice!
Otherwise the pot is ready to go - and I'm getting really hungry!!!

This is perfect! I'm stalling your recipe! So I'm not crazy! Glad you thought of it too :-)

It's not mine at all. There are so many variations - that's just what's on my stove right now, and what I've measured and counted.
I think any variation would stay around 50 calories a cup as long as you use the low starch veggies.

You want stall by stealing that I'm sure.

I love homemade veggie soups especially now the cooler weather is here I'll be making many more.

Cabbage Soup

Made it yesterday, I didn't put a large amount of carrots in my soup,
probably doubled the green beans. It turned out good and I'm having
it tomorrow on my DD. Thanks for reminding us of how filling and
good this soup is.

I love cabbage soup and am making a batch tomorrow. My recipe is very simple and easy -

Knorrs veg stock (in the little tubs)
Large can of diced tomatoes
Onions
Carrots
Celery
Cabbage
Water

The amounts of everything just depend on how big a pot I'm making and whats on hand. I've used the Swanson's vegetable stock also and it's just fine. No S&P or any other seasonings, I prefer to add it at the table. Very low carb and low cal. And Yummo!!

Have to throw my two cents in...I get the slaw mix in produce aisle when marked down,close to the use by date and make my soup with this..It's quick,cheap and no waste...add other veggies as desired..Voila

I was wondering if that could be used, or if the strands would be too thin to hold up well in soup. Thanks!

I have used the bag stuff before, but it just tasted off to me, I liked it better with the whole head cabbage, and I could cut it up in larger pieces.

This week, I used my Kitchen Aid attachment to "shred" the cabbage. I thought it was still fine, but now that I'm eating it, I think I'd rather have larger pieces.
But if I came across a marked down bag, I'd use it just for the convenience!
