Growing up, Cabbage wasn’t part of my favourite vegetables despite its many benefits. I wouldn’t touch it with a long pole, let alone make a soup out of it.
After my third pregnancy, I got desperate about losing postpartum weight. I wanted to shed baby fat so badly, so I started to research on the best way to achieve that.
From my findings, I read that Keto diet is one of the fastest ways to lose weight even with minimal exercise. Keto requires consuming low carbs on a daily basis and cabbage contains low carbs.
Due to my desperation, I decided to try cabbage dishes. I embraced cabbage wholeheartedly until it became my favourite vegetable.
Now, I can boast of different cabbage recipes for weight loss.
Is Cabbage Soup Good For Body Detox?
It serves as a detox soup and a very good choice to lose weight faster. You can include it with tons of diets. It’s very low in calories and the carbs in 100 g of cabbage are just 6 grams.
Since l fell in love with cabbage, cabbage soup has been my favourite dish so far, alongside cabbage stir fry.
It’s so delicious and healthy, I never get tired of it and I eat as much as I want without guilt. You’ll love it more if it’s well garnished with mixed herbs and pepper of your choice.
I included carrots in this recipe but if you’re considering this recipe for keto and you’re on less than 30 grams per day, you can take it out.
Either way, you’re still going to get the same taste.
A pot of warm cabbage soup makes a satisfying meal any day anytime.
