Healing Cabbage Soup

Healing cabbage soup is a vegetable-based soup that helps with digestion and is simple to make.

Cabbage soup has a long-standing reputation as a healing soup. Traditionally used as an aid for digestive health, this humble vegetable soup is now known to provide an array of health benefits.

This delicious, nutritious soup helps to boost immunity, improve digestion, and reduce inflammation.

I personally love adding cabbage to my meals because it is a cruciferous vegetable so it is good for balancing hormones and is rich in fiber.

Since cabbage vegetable soup is a simple soup you can add more vegetables, noodles, and protein to it if you want a more hearty soup.

Toss in a handful of spinach, fresh or frozen, some sausage, lentils, etc.

This cabbage soup is low carb since it doesn’t contain any starches or noodles.
