    The holidays have passed and if you’re anything like me, you’re probably feeling a bit bloated and like you may need to lose a few pounds. I mean, if you were able to get through the holidays without indulging…my hat is off to you. But that was definitely not me.

    It’s also the time of the year when everyone becomes obsessed with the latest fad diets or the quickest ways to lose all that holiday weight. I’m sure we’ve all heard of the cabbage soup diet, where you eat nothing but soup for 10 days.

    While I’m not a fan of fad diets, I figured there might actually be something to incorporating a healthy vegetable soup into my meals so I decided to give my own version of weightloss wonder soup a try.

    I am not going to sit here and WOW you claiming this to be “the best soup recipe ever!” Because it is not. Let’s get that out of the way. It is a diet cabbage soup.

    This means that many of the pieces that traditionally make soup so yummy are big no-nos. No cheese, no cream, no protein, no beans. Nada. Just broth and veggies. What I will claim with confidence is that this is the best diet cabbage soup!

    Why? I’ll tell ya! First of all, I add parsnips. Why are parsnips so underutilized? They are the sweet cousin of the carrot and should be treated with respect. Put them in your soup!

    I also brighten the broth with the addition of lemon juice. Most soups will brighten significantly with the addition of an acid. One tablespoon of vinegar or citrus to any soup will add another layer of sophistication.

    And lastly, chili powder, which is why my broth has a red hue. It needs more flavor, foodie friends! Vegetables boiled in water is pretty bland, but a little bit of chili powder gives it some much needed heat.

    I don’t suggest you eat nothing but this soup for 10 days. I am not into fad diets, not even the cabbage soup diet that inspired this soup. However, I will say if you are going to eat nothing but vegetable soup for 10 days, this is the one to eat! Let me know if you lose those 10 pounds.
