Looking to loose a few pesky pounds or get motivated for a big weight loss journey? THIS soup is your NEW BEST FRIEND! I’m telling you it has worked for me and it will your for you. Our weight loss soup recipe is lean, so healthy and rich in flavor. You will be craving it every day for your meals.

HOW DOES THIS WEIGHT LOSS SOUP HELP YOU LOOSE WEIGHT.

Did you know several  vegetables are basically calorie/carb free? Broth is too and by not adding any cheese or creams this soup is basically carb/calorie free also while being full of flavor and spices like garlic and oregano. You can eat an enormous bowl of this soup while consuming minimal calories. It will keep you full for hours and hours. Being full and satisfied will  help you from snacking and craving other foods.

WHAT VEGETABLES ARE ALMOST CALORIE FREE?

  • cabbage
  • celery
  • carrots
  • onion
  • garlic
  • tomatoes
  • zuchinni
  • squash
  • herbs and spices

DO I HAVE TO ADD POTATOES OR BEANS?

NO! if You want to keep this to a zero calorie soup keep out the beans and potatoes. I like the beans for extra fiber and the potatoes for a little more filling food. You can sub the potato for sweet potato too for a little healthier option.

WAYS TO MAKE THIS SOUP:

You are not stuck with only one way to make this soup! You can make it in

  • pressure cooker
  • stove top
  • slow cooker

INGREDIENTS FOR THIS WEIGHT LOSS SOUP:

  • ground beef or turkey
  • celery
  • carrots
  • squash and zucchini
  • onion
  • garlic
  • herbs and spices
  • canned tomatoes
  • beans (optional
  • 1 potato
  • cabbage

HOW TO MAKE THIS CABBAGE SOUP

Start out by browning your meat in a large stock pot. Add garlic and onion and let it sauté until the onions are translucent.

(while these are cooking start prepping your veggies)

PRO TIP: While you can do this step in your pressure cooker on sauté mode, I prefer to get it done on my stove top. It’s a lot faster and I’m not overloading my instant pot. 

Transfer to your instant pot and start adding all your vegetables. Wash and chop them into bite size pieces, unless you prefer them otherwise.

  1. *I love cutting my carrots long and thin.
  2. Cut your squash into 1 inch pieces, evenly.
  3. Add in your celery.
  4. drain and rinse your beans before adding.

Add in your remaining ingredients. 

  1. Do not drain your tomatoes.
  2. Cut your potatoes nice and small, so it goes further.
  3. I 100% recommend you making some homemade bone broth for this soup. It’ll change. your. life.
  4. CABBAGE. You can really use as much or little as you like for this soup. Kadee adds the entire head of cabbage, I prefer about 1/4-1/2 of a head of cabbage sliced thin.
  5. pour in your spices and salt then stir.

6. QUICK RELEASE! When your soup is done cooking in the pressure cooker make sure to quick release the soup, or you run the chance of your veggies over cooking.

HOW DO I SERVE WEIGHT LOSS SOUP?

This soup is so rich in flavor it does not need any additional creams or cheese. You can feel free to add some more salt and pepper, or top with fresh herbs like basil.

HOW DO YOU STORE WEIGHT LOSS SOUP?

Store in an air tight container in the fridge. It will last 2 weeks in the fridge. You can freeze individual servings and they will last 3 months +.

MEAL PLANNING WILL ALSO HELP YOU LOOSE WEIGHT!

I always have a meal plan. This helps me keep from buying unnecessary foods and snack foods. I plan a lunch for myself along with dinners for my family. My two most go-to meals for my lunches are this weight loss soup and this healthy chicken stew. Both are very low calorie and delicious.

When I know I have a delicious lunch at home it also keeps me from eating unhealthy fast food while I’m out and about.

My favorite brand of bullion is 'better than bullion" it has great seasonings and is healthier than many other brands. I often use this instead of buying boxed or canned broth.
