Day 1

So last night I cooked up a big pot of cabbage soup and put it all into 10 containers. As you can see in the close up picture, there are plenty of non-cabbage ingredients. Celery, carrots, green onions, tomatoes, green pepper. It didn't smell great, but after two hours of simmering, I tried a piece of cabbage and a chunk of green pepper and they weren't bad at all.
I also found a new handy cabbage soup website with meal ideas that answered some questions for me. Yes, I can have coffee. And even a little olive oil is ok for salads and cooking veggies. So I'm excited. But no sweet potatoes. And I don't think I can have green beans either.
Today I eat cabbage soup and whatever kind of fruit I want. I'm more of a veggie girl than a fruit girl so this could be a challenge. Tomorrow is veggie day. The only thing I'm trying to figure out is what to eat for breakfast tomorrow? Maybe some asparagus? This morning I had some pears, a glass of cranberry juice, and I finished off Tommy's container of pear/pineapple blend.
Here goes nothing!


  1. Breakfast on day 2 does suck. I generally get a container of cherry tomatoes and eat them.

  2. BTW - isn't this blogging world fun? so glad we are back in touch!

  3. Me, too Dee!!

    I wish I liked raw tomatoes.. I think I will decide a can of V-8 is breakfast.
