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.
Don’t forget to enter to win using the Rafflecopter widget below. You can tweet daily to increase your chances of winning!
What are you cooking this week?
Sunday: Cabbage Soup Detox
Monday: Baked Pesto Chicken by Kalyn’s Kitchen (omitting the mozzarella cheese) + Cabbage Soup
Thursday: Paleo Tex Mex Casserole by Popular Paleo (I found “skinny” version of this recipe that used several cans of soup I knew there had to be a clean version out there. Just remember SKINNY doesn’t = HEALTHY)

Since arriving in Florida this summer we are hitting the pool and beach almost daily. My number one concern is keeping my kids safe from sun damage. My youngest has very fair skin and burns easily – so much that she has to wear a rash guard t-shirt and gets loaded down with chemical-free sunscreen.
Dr. Linda Miles, D.O.M, Co-founder and Chief Formulator at derma e® shares her sun safety tips for you and your family.
Can you believe we’re already receiving back to school promotions to share with you? It feels like the kids just went off to summer camp!
And according to a survey by the National Retail Federation, 24% of Americans last year started shopping for back-to-school products two months before the school season- hello that means JULY! And this year that number is expected to grow.
Hi friends! Welcome to this week’s Real Food Recipe Roundup, a collaboration between Sassy Moms in the City and Musings of a Housewife. This week I’ll be taking a hiatus from meal planning as we’ve had a lot going on. Between my mom getting pneumonia and I’m suffering from digestive issues, the thought of food is not at the top of my list. Read the rest of this entry “
