My Detox Soup

I have type 2 Diabetes.  It has been a long journey for me & it hasn’t been an easy journey.  My entire world revolves around food & how often I eat. This recipe helps me to detoxify my system.  When I was first diagnosed, the doctors do what they usually do, put me on expensive pills & constant warnings that if I don’t get this under control, I would need to use insulin.  To top it all off, they said that my cholesterol & blood pressure were too high.  I was going broke & there didn’t seem to be a way out.

That’s when I went to my chiropractor, who does everything naturally, and asked him if there was a natural way to lower my numbers.  He put me on The Page Fundamental Diet.  Basically, the diet is, If God didn’t make it, don’t eat it.  The diet is in 2 phases.  My soup is made from the items that I can have in phase 1.

I am now off all of my pills & my numbers are in the ‘good’ range.  What they don’t tell you is that the diabetic diet keeps you diabetic.  They also don’t tell you that carbohydrates raise your sugar levels.  I must admit, sometimes I fall off the wagon & once you start to eat carbs, you crave them.  The only way I can get rid of the cravings is to make my ‘Detox Soup’.  I eat it for most meals for about a week.  By the end of the week, I’m no longer craving carbs.  I tend to make 2 pots of this soup in a week.

This is how I make it:

Spaghetti Pie

Spaghetti Pie is one of those recipes that I’ve had in my recipe box for years.  What does it taste like?  Spaghetti pie is a cross between Pizza, Spaghetti & Lasagna all rolled up in one.  It’s an easy meal to make & tastes just as good reheated as it did on the day you made it.  It has become one of my son’s favorites and he asks to have it packed for his lunch to take to work.  I hope you like it… we do.

Stuffed Green Peppers

Like I said before, I’ve been going through some of my old recipe cards.  I haven’t made a lot of these meals for over 20 years.  The first meal that I made from going through the old cards was my Mama’s Beefaroni.  My son loved it, so I’m making more of the meals.  The next recipe I made was Stuffed Green Peppers.  I hadn’t made those for at least 10 years,  Well, these were a hit with my son & I can’t wait to make some more recipes from that old recipe box.  (and this is the girl who hates to cook)
