So today is the first day after a cheat day. Ultimately, Ryan and I are both super hungry and tired. From reading other blogs it appears that this is a common occurrence after the massive eating of carbs and sugars that occurs on a cheat day. I am working hard to stay the course and to not cheat!
So far today's main course we are having beef cabbage soup which I adapted from several recipes found on the internet. It really hit the spot. It won't replace the chips and dips we would normally be having on a Super Bowl Sunday, but it is pretty good.
Katy's Slow Carb (4-Hour Body) Beef Cabbage Soup
- 2 lbs grass fed ground beef
- 1 large onion
- 1 head cabbage, chopped
- 2 cups sliced carrots
- 2 cups frozen peas
- 2 boxes of 32 oz beef broth
- 1 - 28 oz can of diced organic tomatoes (I like Murglen)

- 1/2 tsp salt

- tablespoon olive oil
Brown ground beef and onions in the olive oil. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until done, about one hour.
