HCg P2 Chicken, Cabbage Soup

This is a P2/P3 friendly meal.  With winter here and it being cold outside, I am a soup champion and can have it every day.  This is a basic soup...Ingrediants are:

Chicken Breast 100 grams or 3.2 oz with no bones or skin.  
Chopped Cabbage.  100 grams
Braggs Amino Acid to spray the cabbage while cooking
Cilantro or parsley for granish
One wedge of lemon or lime
Sambal Oelek Ground Fresh Chili Paste, 1 tbsp (optional)
Kitchen Basic Chicken Broth

*Please not that if you are using beef as your protein you can use Beef broth but please check the ingrediants.  I only use Kitchen basics and not others on the market because I do check ingrediants.  Also the Kitchen Basics Vegetable Broth contains sugar.

I normally cook my chicken in a pan and I use 2 Tbsp's of Broth in the pan and steam cook it.  Once complete, I chop it into small peices so that I can have chicken in each bite of soup.  Once the chicken is cooked, I remove the chicken and place it in the Broth that has been boiling on low.  Then in the same pan with a little more chicken broth, I cook 100 grams of chopped cabbage placing in any spices that you want to use.  Once cooked, I add the cabbage to the broth and chicken and bring to a boil.  As soon as it comes to a boil, I place in a bolw, garnish, add lemon and chili and I am ready to warm my Belly!

Bon Appetit

This diet is called HCg and has been around as long as the Adkins Diet.  I like the Phase system on this diet.  I like the idea of short periods of dieting with breaks to eat what you want at the end.  That is the prize and the gift is the loss.  I know when I start and I know when I finish.  500 calories in phase 2 for 21 days or 41 days depending if your doing a long or short round.  Phase 3 is 1500-1800 calories with no sugars or starches for 3 weeks until you stablize and then Phase 4 is maintenance for life eating anything you want and if you gain more than 2 pounds you immediately correct it by having a high protein day.  Oh My, steak and eggs is really a nice correction day.  I just got to remember to stay away from heavy carbs, sugars and starches have more protein.  I could never do the 500 calorie a day if not for the HCg.  It really does a good job fighting the hunger.  In fact, I do not remember the last time I was hungry in any phase since September of last year.  Its funny, I don't get hungry but I do have cravings...but I can deal with that.

Sorry for the late response margy, but carbs are carbs.  I guess as a product of the 60's I may have used the word Heavy...Lol.

Opp's...not Amino Acid...it's Braggs Liquid Amino which is a substitute for soy sauce with less salt and no extra ingrediants.  It really gives the cabbage a better flavor.

Soup looks great! I've been currently dieting but really following no "plan" I've already lost 17lbs, hopefully more when i weigh myself tommorow. This is quite interesting and i'm glad u have posted. I saw mention of this hcg diet but never looked into it, I am very interested and think I will give it a serious look over. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I love cabbage and I love chicken.

Sounds really good and I just found out that chicken broth only has 15 calories. Not bad, not bad at all! Thanks for the super mouth watering soup
