Hello friends! Welcome to this week’s Real Food Recipe Roundup, a collaboration between Sassy Moms in the City and Musings of a Housewife.


After last week’s hiatus I’m feeling much more inspired and like it’s time to detox. Being on an extended vacation since June I can’t say my eating habits have been always so healthy. My body is starting to rebel.

For some odd reason Ive been craving cabbage in every form – stir fried, sauerkraut, sautéed and in soup. Did you ever do the Cabbage Soup Detox Diet? I did once in my twenties and lost 5 pounds.

I found a new version of the soup which looks like it is healthier and more flavorful. This week I’m going to give it a try but use as a detox tool rather than weight loss. The meal plan below is filled with new recipes but for the most part I’ll be using the Cabbage Soup as my vegetable source for each meal.

This week Musings of a Housewife is hosting the Inlinkz widget. Head there to link up your own recent healthy recipe or meal plan from your blog. We simply request you link back to one of us, and that the recipes you share use primarily real, whole foods.
