Detox pseudo-botox re-oxidation cabbage and vegie soup

After a week of excess wine, food and chocolate mudcake, I needed a simple vegie soup to recalibrate the system. This was inspired by a soup my Norwegian sister-in-law made last week, and it was very delicious. I ate three bowlfuls and it was probably many fewer calories than any one of the slices of the communal birthday cake I ate last week. Simply potatoes, onions, carrots and lotsa garlic, tossed into the slow cooker to simmer all day long with chicken stock. Cabbage and olive oil were added in the last hour.

OMG!!! I'm already planning our DETOX diet for our return to the US. My kids have been eating so much white flour --YUCK! Lot's of white flour bagels, chinese pastries, white pasta, and tons of white flour french bread.
