Miracle Soup day is finally here. Who in their right mind thought that was a good name for what is basically a beef and vegetable (mostly cabbage) soup? Where’s the miracle? Am I missing something?
1 cabbage, 2 peppers, 2 onions, 6 celery stalks, 2 beef cubes, 1 jalapeno, 2 cans of tomatoes, 2 low sodium beef cubes. About 10-12 cups of water.
Boil all the ingredients together. Blend or don’t. (we didn’t because we needed to feel like we were actually eating). Divide into 2 cup portions.
Again I started out with my cross-fit and boxing routine (about 40 minutes), it was a little bit of a daze today. The focus of day 3 was gone. It fled. It left in a hurry! And it wasn’t coming back. COME BACK I SAY! It didn’t.
There’s nothing like having soup for breakfast, nothing like Miracle Soup for breakfast….. and lunch and dinner and that’s all….. THAT’S ALL!!!
We each ate 3 bowls of soup (about 6 cups). A quick calorie count based on the ingredients I used makes each bowl worth about 102 calories! We couldn’t face a fourth bowl. It was a NO from both of us! So we’ve had just over 300 calories today. That’s about the same as eating 3 Tbsps of peanut butter and nothing else!
*2000-2500 calories is suggested to maintain the current weight.*
How do you feel?
Um, kind of like…. I’m not stressed. I feel very mellow, it might be because I’m starving. I did read somewhere when you do these you might feel like that when your body is eating itself! *giggles from the lying down position on the couch*
What are you looking forward to?
Beer! Really want a beer! But right now all I can think about are eggs and chicken!
Do you want to go for a walk?
