Sacred Heart Diet – Day One

 

Day 1 – Sunday, April 29th

Eat any fruit (except bananas). Eat only soup and fruit today. (link here for full the Sacred Heart Diet Guidelines)

Today I started with my favorite breakfast, minus the toast. I also made the first batch of soup right before lunch and enjoyed a fresh bowl topped with parsley. My version of the soup is adapted from this recipe and was made as follows:

Soup Recipe

  • 1  can diced tomatoes & 1 can of stewed tomatoes
  • 3 plus large green onions
  • 1 large can of beef broth (no fat)
  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 2 handfuls green beans, cut to bit size
  • 2 lbs. Carrots
  • 2 Green Peppers
  • 1 – 2 tbsp olive oil

Pour olive oil in large stock pot, heat on medium/high, add green peppers, carrots, celery, and onions, cook approx 3 minutes. Add seasonings (I use 2 tbsp VE Sun-dried tomato & herb dip mix, 1 tbsp VE Louisiana Hot & Spicy, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper, instead of the lipton soup mix).  Stir to coat veggies, add beef broth and tomatoes.  Bring to a boil for 5 minutes and add green beans.  Reduce head to medium/low and simmer until vegetables are cooked to your liking.

The soup can be eaten at any time.

A break down of my day:

Breakfast – a half of an orange and a whole grapefruit (segments & juice in one bowl mixed together) & coffee

Snack – Unsweetened Apple Sauce

Lunch – Soup

Snack – Mixed Berry Smoothie (3/4 cup frozen mixed berries, 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce, top with water or unsweetened juice & blend)

Supper – Soup

Snack – fruit salad (grapes, oranges, apples, pears, grapefruit, pineapple)

Tea – I have several glasses of herbal tea throughout the day.

 

I feel really good.  If I am hunger I always have fruit near by.
