cabbage-soupOk, I don’t expect this Cabbage Soup recipe to make the Top 10 All Time recipes on our site, but I did want to share it with you because it really is good.  And for those select few who have never tried cabbage, you can’t go wrong with this soup.

It’s very mild and warm and soft.  It’s just all around yummy in your tummy!

This is very simply a nourishing and easy to make soup, whether you have a cold or you are just getting over the flu, you want something light and easy in your stomach.

Or, on the other hand, if you want to watch your waistline, cabbage soup is a great soup to add to your menu plan.  It is extremely low in calories and high in nutrition!

Word on the street is that this recipe was created by American soldiers, not to lose weight, but instead to ward off scurvy.  It just so happens that cabbage is chock full o’ vitamin C.

But it was in the 1990s that The Cabbage Soup Diet was photocopied and passed around from person to person and, once people could fax and the Internet was invented, the diet became one of the most popular of all time!
