Homemade Cabbage Soup

It’s fall! Yay! I love fall, it’s just the best season. It’s all about fires, sweaters, walks in the woods, hot apple cider, football and thanksgiving. So, I thought I’d kick off fall by making a large pot of cabbage soup. Cabbage soup is great for you. It’s low calorie, low sugar, high fiber and high vitamin C. I made mine with low sodium V8 and no salt added chicken broth.

I added some white kidney beans for a protein and fiber punch. Enjoy it with a chunk of bread for a full meal.

So, try this recipe out, I am sure you will love it.
