If you've been quarantined at home for the past month plus, chances are it's been hard to keep up on your regular exercise routine... or any routine for that matter.
As a result, the weight gain has been real for many people.
So if you want to shed some pounds but want to keep shoving food in your mouth, perhaps the "Peel-a-Pound" soup can help you out.
The plus side of this soup is it has some simple ingredients, is easy to cook, and it doesn't take too long to make.
The uploader of the video explains the recipe is old and is part of a 7-day restrictive diet. Thanks to the fiber-rich ingredients, this soup apparently makes your body burn more calories by chewing and digesting it than there are calories in the soup itself!
From the video description, here's the recipe:
- 1 large can of Stewed or Whole Tomatoes
- 1 Envelope of Onion Soup Mix (optional)
- 4 Cups of Water
- 6-7 Beef Bullion cubes (I now use Better than Bouillon)
- 1 Head of Cabbage
- 1/2 Stalk Celery
- 2 Bell Peppers
- 2 Onions
- 5 Garlic toes
Into a large dutch oven or stock pot, add 1 large can of stewed or whole tomatoes. Add 1 packet of Onion Soup mix.
Add 3-4 Cups water along with 6-7 Beef Bouillon cubes and mix well, then heat mixture over med-high heat until boiling.
While mixture is coming up to a boil, cut up your vegetables and add them to the pot.
Once soup is boiling, turn heat down to med-low for a slow rolling boil and cook with lid on until vegetables are tender (30-90 mins).
