January 1st! New year, new goals, here we go! This year is pretty exciting that I get to start it being engaged to Joe! Wedding is in a year + a few months, so this gives me plenty of time to get in the best shape of my life. (Hoping for a little Mexico beach wedding and lots of bikini sun time after!)
So day 1/1/13 starts with a 21 day sugar detox mixed with a whole 30 challenge. All that means is no sugar (that means fruit too) for 21 days and just sticking to whole foods, meat, veggies, nuts, etc. nothing processed and lots of cooking! So I am going to be posting a meal a day for 30 days. Trying to come up with a few new ones this month.
Figured having a huge batch of vegetable soup to have for lunches or snacks would be good to have on hand.
• 48 oz of low sodium V8 juice
• 8-10 cups of water
• bunch of green onions
• purple onion
• a few bell peppers
• package of mushrooms
• can of stewed tomatoes
• 3-4 cut up carrots
• whole cabbage cut in bite sized pieces
• seasoning. You can do a vegetable soup seasoning packet or bouillon cubes, or just some paprika, garlic powder, onion powder.
In a large stock pot sauté the onions until tender. Add in the remaining chopped ingredients and add the V8 and water. Add your seasonings and bring to boil. After boiling turn the heat and keep medium warm for about 2-3 hours.
I put mine in a few Tupperware bowls and put in the fridge to warm up for later anytime I’m hungry and want a healthy quick meal or snack!
