I am allowed to have broth, and I’m allowed to have non starchy vegetables… So is cabbage Soup ok? I am on day 4 of my liver shrink diet and looking for some variety. 🙂

Broths are the liquid from Soups made of vegetables & meat. If you strain the cabbage Soup you’d be having broth but if you’re allowed non starchy vegetables you should be fine to eat it unstrained.

There are stacks of non starchy vegetables you can eat: salad greens, tomatoes, green Beans, mushrooms, cauliflower, capsicum, … Can you have eggs? Make some omelettes. Make a Pasta dish using zucchini noodles & the meat & vegetables you’re allowed.

Check with your dietician if you want to be sure.

Here's the Weight Loss Magic Soup I've been making. It's delicious, filling, and has only 57 calories per cup:

32 oz chicken stock
3 cups V-8 juice (you can use low-sodium V8 or even Tomato juice, homemade or store bought)
2 cans Italian diced tomatoes
1 small onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 package sliced mushrooms
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 zucchini, diced
1 yellow squash, diced
2 cups fresh or frozen green beans
1 can kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
3-4 cups shredded cabbage
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt and Pepper, to taste

In a large frying pan sprayed with cooking spray, sauté garlic, onions, carrots, and mushrooms for about 5 minutes.

In a large crockpot, combine sautéed garlic and vegetables with the remaining ingredients. Cook on high for 2-3 hours, or until vegetables are cooked. (I have made this in a large stock pot on the stove instead of in a crock pot.)

This makes a large batch of Soup. If you would like to freeze portions of it to use later, undercook the vegetables just a little. Pour the soup into freezer Ziplock bags and let as much air out as you can. Lay the bags flat on a cookie sheet and freeze. Once the soup is frozen flat, it is easy to layer in your freezer and won't take up much room. To thaw, place the bag in the fridge for 24 hours and then reheat.

Wow thanks! This reminds me of the old WW Soup recipe that changed depending upon the season and veggies available. I can alter the veggies to suit my stomach and family. Yum

Absolutely, you can mix up the veggies to your own taste and with what is abundant. For example, I like canned "fire roasted" diced tomatoes or even fresh cherry or grape tomatoes. Two cups of this Soup is only 114 calories and very filling for even dinner. 57CDDD12-FF45-2B11-46E0-8FB7843ABA55-5772.thumb.jpeg.507c7301e6615f7db9c8d7007dbcad0a.jpeg

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
