i remember this from when i was a kid, we always had a little lean hamburger in it. might be good with some smoked burger or chicken added, makes enough for a few days and you can add to it to keep it going. might have too much salt for some, but very low calorie wise and lots of vitamins.

    I remember this from the old "Dolly Parton Diet" that was popular in the "70's. One day you ate nothing but fruit, one day all vegetables, etc. The soup was a "free" item. You could lose 10 lbs in one week, if you could suffer through it--but you gained it all back as soon as you went back on a normal diet. I make up a version of the soup now that has only vegetables in it and eat it for lunch. It is very filling and you can suit the vegetables to your own taste. I think I got it from a Weight Watchers forum some time back.

    it actually makes you lighter just because of all the gas you carry around, too.

    we had this all the time as a kid. my dad had some diet where you ate cabbage soup for a week or something.

    I've had it before. Pretty good taste.
    The aftermath can be offensive to some, :huh: those without a sense of humor :woohoo:

    I just made a vegetable beef soup with leftover sirloin roast. What helps to make it GREAT is the can of Frank's sauerkraut- juice and all in this soup. Great flavor and healthy cause the meat is lean to start and fat in the soup can be removed after refrigeration. A little fresh garlic and a frozen bag of home grown tomatoes went into the pot along with water, about a pound of chopped sirloin, then carrot, onion, celery and three bay leaves. I seasoned with salt, pepper and California sweet paprika and dehydrated parsley flakes then simmered all afternoon. Winter survival food that's good for ya.
  • This recipe is tasty. High sodium content may be too much for some, you would have to adjust it according to your needs.
