I made quite a few changes to this recipe to come up with mine.  It’s not a meat night for me tonight, so my soup doesn’t have the beef, and then I made some other changes – SO YUMMY!  The two main ingredients of my soup are tomatoes and cabbage, giving this soup the following health highlights.

Tomatoes

  • Contains lots of vitamins A and C giving them great anti-oxidant benefits
  • all that vitamin A also make tomatoes great for eye health
  • Due to the potassium and B vitamins, tomatoes help to lower blood pressure and to lower high cholesterol levels.
  • Heart healthy
  • Tomatoes contain lycopene, which can actually help to stop the growth of cancer cells
  • reduces the risk of kidney stones and gall stones

Cabbage

  • prevents cancer growth
  • treats peptic ulcers
  • boosts immune system
  • anti-inflammatory
  • relieves muscle soreness
  • reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s
