Recipe For the Sacred Heart Cabbage Soup

Looking to start the Sacred Heart diet? It's been a pretty popular one week diet plan for a while now, and can be helpful for people looking to lose weight quickly. For some pros and cons of the diet, check the link at the bottom. The sacred heart soup diet really isn't the best way to lose weight if you want to keep it off, but it's got some good points to it.

Traditional sacred heart soup recipe:

* 6 - Green onions; chopped
* 2 - Diced Bell peppers
* 2 - Cans tomatoes, diced or whole, including the juice
* 2 - Cups of cold water
* 2 - Finely chopped Garlic cloves
* 1/2 Head cabbage chopped in bite size pieces
* 2 - Cubes beef or chicken bouillon that is dissolved in hot water
* 2 - Squash, diced into bite size pieces
* 1 - Zucchini, diced
* 2 - Cups each of sliced carrots, celery and mushrooms
* 2 - Tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley
* Hot Sauce, salt and pepper may be added to your taste

Cooking directions:

Get a pot or a kettle, put all the ingredients in it, and bring it to a boil for about ten minutes. Then reduce the heat and simmer until all ingredients are tender... usually about an hour and a half. The longer you let it simmer, the more flavorful it will be.

You should notice an increase in your energy levels within a few days as you lose weight. Don't live on it though since it doesn't have all the things your body needs to function long term... but it makes a pretty good filler meal. Remember if you're going to do the Sacred Heart Soup Diet, you need to follow the rest of the eating plan too.

Here is another sacred heart soup recipe, one that is a little lighter on the ingredients. Same cooking ingredients as above.

* 1/2 head cabbage

* 1 48 oz. can V8 Juice
* 1 Cup of cold Water
* Salt & pepper to taste

The 7 day Sacred Heart plan to go with the Soup Recipe:

Add this to the sacred heart soup, and you've got a plan that can help you break through some dieting plateaus. No bread, pasta, and alcohol. Leave the soda alone, especially diet soda (it makes food cravings a lot worse). Water, tea, or coffee work fine as long as you don't add too many sweeteners and cream.

* Day 1 - Any fruit you would like to eat except bananas.
* Day 2 - All the fresh vegetables you want, in moderation of course. :)
* Day 3 - Consume as much soup as you wish. Consume plenty of fruits and vegetables.
* Day 4 - No more than six bananas. You may also have some skim milk
* Day 5 - 8 to 12 ounces of lean beef.
* Day 6 - More beef or chicken along with any vegetables you like
* Day 7 - Consume as much unsweetened fruit juices, brown rice and fresh vegetables as you wish.
