In 2011, I was desperate to lose all the excess fat. In that desperation I stumbled upon the cabbage soup diet, in which you consume a cabbage soup everyday and cycle between fruits, veggies and skim milk every other day. It was a disaster, I did lose the weight, but I also lost my muscle mass because the diet was low in proteins and important minerals! Through the years of researching and experimenting I came up with this soup which is high is proteins and fiber and low in fat. I consume this almost everyday paired with a healthy diet (I’m done with fad diet trends) and it helps me lose a healthy amount of weight and also supports my lean muscle.

Surprise surprise, this soup becomes creamy and frothy without the addition of any dairy! It’s sweet, tangy and feels like a comfortable and cozy soup and can be easily had everyday. You can decrease the amount of mint leaves if you don’t like them as they have a very strong taste, but they work wonders as a detox ingredient.

You can have this the next day after you eat loads of junk food or during that time of the month if you have a problem with water retention. This works great with bloating and gives you a flatter stomach almost instantly! This doesn’t even taste like a diet soup and can easily pass as a comfy spring soup (Spring is here!!!)
