The Chicken Soup Fad Diet works on a very simple idea. You eat 1 breakfast each day (see breakfast choices listed below) and as much chicken soup as you want during the day.
Here is the recipe for the chicken soup:
2 Tbs. oil, best if you use olive oil
4 parsnips cut into 1/2 inch pieces (this is about 1 lb. of parsnips)
4 ribs celery sliced
1 turnip cut into 1/2 inch pieces (3/4 of a pound)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 Tbs. chopped garlic
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
16 cups reduced fat, low sodium, chicken broth
7 cans (5 oz. each) of chicken, or 5 cups (1 1/2 lbs) fresh chicken (cooked)
1 bag (16 oz.) frozen carrots
1 box (10 oz.) frozen broccoli florets
1 box (10 oz.) frozen chopped collard greens
1 1/2 cups frozen chopped onions
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill or 1 tbs dried dill.
Using a large pot, heat the oil over a medium head. Add the parsnips, celery, turnip, jalapeno peppper, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper. Cook all the vegetables until the are crisp-tender...this should take about 15 minutes. Add the broth, chicken, carrots, broccoli, collard greens, onions, lemon juice and dill. Brink it to a boil, reduce heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
This will make 26 cups of soup.
On the chicken soup fad diet you are allowed one breakfast a day. Try to mix it up a bit by trying more than one of the following choices:
1 cup vanilla nonfat yogurt combined with 1/2 cup chopped fruit salad and sprinkled with wheat germ.
1 cup ricotta cheese combined with 1/2 tsp. of sugar and a dash of cinnamon.
2 pieces while-grain bread, toasted
3 dried figs
1 1/2 cups Total cereal
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1/2 cup calcium enriched orange juice
1/2 cup prune juice
1 small whole-wheat bagel, topped with 1 oz of fat-free cheddar cheese melted.
1 1/2 cups cooked Wheatena Cereal
1/2 cup nonfat milk
Now remember, you have one of these breakfast dishes every day and then as much of the chicken soup as you want.
