Cleanse Day 4: Wonder Soup

Cleanse Day Four: Today you will eat as many as eight bananas and drink three glasses of milk. This will be combined with the special Wonder Soup which may be eaten in unlimited quantities.

Gassy.  That’s today’s word of the day.

So today, I started the cleanse off with a banana, a bowl of soup, and a glass of milk.  Weird?  Yes.  I made the soup last night in the crock pot, and set it for 10 hours.  Best decision ever!  Woke up this morning to a hot soup waiting for me to chow down on.  Surprisingly, it filled me up.  Running on a banana, soup, and milk before lunch, I felt full!

Before lunch, I had an intense craving for cupcakes.  Why?  I don’t know.  Maybe it was due to the picture of someone on Facebook with a box of cupcakes?  Maybe.  All I know is later that night, I pinned up a storm of donuts and cupcakes to make later this weekend…

For lunch, I filled an entire tupperware container up with the soup.  Delicious.  Kept me full all day.  It said I could eat an unlimited amount of this soup, but I was so full!

I only ended up eating 3 bowls of soup, 3 glasses of milk, and 2 bananas (Fatima ate them all).

Wonder Soup Ingredients:

This makes a lot of soup!  Filled my crockpot up to the rim.  I’ll be eating this for the rest of the week.  The full recipe is below, but I would cut it in half next time…unless you think you’ll be crazy hungry.

  • 28 oz of water
  • 6 large red onions
  • 2 green peppers
  • Whole tomatoes (I used a 28 oz canned of tomatoes)
  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 4 envelopes of lipton onion soup mix
  • herbs and flavoring for taste

Throw everything into a pot or crock pot and cook!  I preferred the crock pot because it cooked the cabbage through.  I bought a box of lipton onion soup mix and it only had 2 envelopes inside.  I was too lazy to go back out, so I added in some more 0f my own onion seasoning and additional flavoring.  It was very oniony, but oh so good!

When I got home from work, I started to prepare tomorrow’s feast…looks like I’ll be having filet mignon for breakfast!
