So It happened, didn't it?

You went to your favorite aunt's house for Thanksgiving and between the boxed wine lovely cabernet and the sides you've enoyed since you were a kid, your pants may be fitting a little tighter this week. Whats a girl to do to get back on track?! Well here is my go to detox recipe to get those post holiday pounds off in a flash! DISCLAIMER: This makes A LOT of soup and should last you a week. Feel free to cut the recipe in half and add your own spin on it!



  • 1 head of Cabbage
  • 1 yellow Onion
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper 
  • 3 large Carrots
  • 3-4 stalks of Celery
  • 3-4 cloves of Garlic
  • 1/2 of 1 lemon
  • Fresh Parsley 
  • 64 oz of Chicken bone broth or Vegetable Stock
  • 2 cans of Tomatoes Sauce
  • Pinch of garlic salt 
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Oregano, Thyme or Basil – if you want
  • 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 3 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar (or as much as you would like)  


  • Chop and/or dice all vegetables
  • Heat the olive oil, in a large pot, over medium heat. Add onions, carrots and celery. Sauté for about 5 minutes. Add minced garlic. Stir for about a minute. Add chopped cabbage. Stir.
  • Add bone broth (or veggie stock), tomato sauce, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar. Stir well. Season with desired herbs and chopped fresh parsley. Cover pot and let come to a boil. Once the soup is at a boil, turn heat down to simmer, leaving the lid on until veggies are soft (approximately 30-45 mins). 

    I hope this helps you get back into your skinny jeans for the company holiday Christmas party!
