We Tried It: The Last of The Cabbage Soup
Cabbage Soup - The Home Stretch.
We're almost there! The final days of the Cabbage Soup Diet are winding down -- and as I look back - I've definitely learned a few things about my eating habits. I have always considered myself a pretty healthy eater, but while I was on this plan, it occurred to me that I don't eat enough fruits and vegetables. They're usually on my plate, but probably not enough of them. This diet also helped me create different combinations of vegetables cooked in various ways with different spices. I guess when you're stuck eating only veggies for a few days, the creative juices start to flow.
Talking with Karlie, she agreed. More fruits and veggies are the way to go. She made another valid point too. She has learned to be more aware of what she is actually putting into her mouth, and she's making sure to drink more water, something she didn't do before this diet.
So call it a "fad diet" if you will. But it did help the both of us "kick start" some better and healthier eating habits.
After the seven days on the Cabbage Soup Diet we have both lost five pounds -- and as a result we are keeping better track of what we are eating, when we are eating and why and how it is prepared. There are more fruits and vegetables in our diet, lower carbohydrate intake, less sugar and more exercise. I have personally lost another four pounds keeping this healthy lifestyle.

Day 5 - Menu
Beef and Tomatoes Day!
You may have 10-20 ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once today. You may eat broiled or baked skinless chicken instead of beef. If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef. Drink plenty of water and take a multivitamin.
Creative Creations: Using stewed tomatoes can sauce up your chicken or beef. Add some Italian seasonings for a different flavor. For dinner try chicken and tomato kabobs with some different seasonings.
Day 6 - Menu
Beef and Vegetables Day!
Eat all the beef and vegetables you want on this day. You can even have 2 or 3 steaks if you like. Eat a lot of of vegetables, making sure you have a lot of leafy green ones. No Baked Potato. Eat your soup at least once. Drink plenty of water and take a multivitamin.
Creative Creations: There are many ways to make your veggies taste good, on this day try different spices, grill them, boil them, eat them raw. You have endless options. For lunch or dinner you can make steak kabobs with grilled vegetables. Also, try sliced flank steak or grilled chicken over a green salad.
Day 7 - Menu
Brown Rice & Veggie Day!
You can eat as much brown rice and vegetables today. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day. Drink plenty of water and take a multivitamin.
Creative Creations: Lost at what to have for breakfast? Again, using sweet spices like cinnamon or nutmeg can add a different flavor to your brown rice. For lunch or dinner, try sauteing a variety of vegetables and mix in brown rice with low sodium soy sauce in a wok to create a Asian style stir-fry. Remember to drink lots of water and/or unsweetened fruit juices.
Cabbage Soup Diet 7-Day Plan
My Journey through the 7 Day Cabbage Soup Diet
Friday, 22 June 2012
Day 5: Sleepy.
I have to say it was REALLY nice to eat a piece of beef today!! I seasoned it with pepper, garlic powder, paprika, no salt chicken seasoning and a little veggie seasoning, and cooked it with sliced onion, with a little olive oil zero calorie spray. I sauteed some red pepper (also a suggestion to substitute tomato's with) and overall it turned out well, just not used to using so much spices and no sauces or gravy for the beef. I bought 15oz of beef (am allowed up to 20oz) the thin cut strips of center loin, there's a fancy name for it but I forget now.
The Cabbage Soup Diet: Day Five
Diet Day 5: Beef and Tomatoes. Real food!? I am taking full advantage with a special recipe.
- Breakfast: cappuccino
- Lunch: cabbage soup
- Snacks: um… water
- Dinner: cabbage rolls
For dinner, we decided to make Grandma’s famous cabbage rolls, or “halupkes”. We made some healthy edits (which I’m including in a footer note below) and they fit in perfectly with our diet day.
You can substitute today’s beef for chicken or fish, so Kiley and I decided to use ground turkey. It’s just like beef, but much leaner so I think this is the opposite of a cheat … extra brownie points? Ugh, I can’t even think about brownies right now…
Fortunately, it’s almost St. Patty’s so cabbage (which is cheap anyway) was only 7 cents/pound! What a great week to be on the Cabbage Soup Diet.
The cabbage rolls are easy, but not as easy as Grandma makes it seem.
Just start with your meat (traditionally they are made with beef, but we used ground turkey), chopped onion, rice, salt, and pepper. Because we’re on the diet, we used homemade cauliflower rice instead of rice. Instructions on how to make it can be found here.
Leave the cabbage whole and cut out the stem on the bottom (our head of cabbage was already cut in half but you’ll get bigger leaves if you leave it whole). Place the cabbage in boiling water and remove leaves one by one with a fork, placing in a strainer.
Spread a little of your tomato sauce (or soup, depending on your preference) to the bottom of a baking dish. Add your meat mixture and roll it up in a cabbage leaf like a burrito. Place seam-side down in the dish.
When you’ve run out of leaves and meat mixture, bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.
Of course they aren’t as good as Grandma’s, but they never are…
- 1 head of cabbage
- 1 lb ground beef or turkey
- 1 cup rice, cooked and cooled*
- 1 onion, chopped fine
- 1 tsp. salt*
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 can tomato sauce or tomato soup (with water added)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together raw meet, raw onion, cooked rice, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Boil a big pot of water. Remove the center stem of the cabbage with a knife and add head of cabbage to the boiling water. Carefully remove cabbage leaves with a fork, one at a time, and place in a strainer.
Add meat mixture to a cabbage leaf, tuck ends of the lead in and roll (like a burrito). Repeat until all of the meat is gone. (You can freeze them at this stage if you’d like.)
Spread half the can of tomato soup on the bottom of a baking dish. Arrange cabbage rolls in the pan and pour the rest of the soup over top.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until meat is cooked through.
*If on the Cabbage Soup Diet, keep salt to a minimum. Leave out rice or substitute for cauliflower rice.
