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:

Hubby’s Favorite Home Fries

One of my hubby’s favorite meals is breakfast.  Give him a couple of eggs, bacon, toast & a side dish of home fries, and he’s as happy as can be.  Years ago, when he was at the ‘strip’ in Pittsburgh, he had breakfast in a diner.  (you’ve all heard about how good diner food is, I’m sure)  He loved the home fries so much that he asked the cook how to make them.  I make them for him quite often, and he loves them so much that they even get packed in his lunch.

This is the recipe that the cook gave him:
