Whenever I feel like Krautwickel or stuffed cabbage rolls, and don’t have the time, I am making a German Cabbage soup
Can be made without the meat for more health benefits and a whole body detox. It satisfies my cravings with little effort
The cabbage family is very large and ranges from Chinese cabbage, Red cabbage, Green cabbage, Savoy cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and Broccoli
Who hasn’t heard of the magic of cabbage or cabbage soup? Leave out the hamburger meat and the ingredients promise a lot. I was told from a medical professional that the vegetarian version of cabbage soup acts like a detox on four levels, the digestive tract, lymphatic, cardiovascular and immune system.
Each ingredient has specific effects. The vegetables detox and purify the intestines with their fibers. The cabbage boosts the metabolism, which means that more fat is burned without starving (due to a high proportion of vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, iron, iodine and zinc). The potassium purifies and strengthens the immune system. Garlic kills bacteria, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Selenium in Cabbage promotes happiness and a good mood, it produces a messenger substance that put you in a happy mood, tryptophan stimulates the formation of serotonin – the happiness hormone. Folic acid and B vitamins act as stress killers and brain food to calm your nerves, it also helps with insomnia. Vitamin A protects the skin, promotes libido and mental power
You could do a 7-day cabbage soup diet. Don’t worry, other foods are also allowed
