Diet celery soup for weight loss and sugar normalization Pinterest

I start the series of true diabetic recipes with a very healthy soup. Diet celery soup is rich in magnesium and potassium, which work together by improving the work of the pancreas and normalization of sugar level.

I must mention that only the root of celery contains magnesium. The green stems have a lot of vitamin C, but none of the magnesium. This is why diabetics should use the celery root in the preparation of dishes. In this recipe, we use one celery root. Usually, it weighs about 21 oz. 3,5 oz. of celery contains 0,001 oz. of magnesium. Meaning, one serving of dish will have about 0,007 oz. of magnesium. And this doesn’t include the beans, cabbage, and carrot. The daily norm for a middle-aged person is 0,01 oz. That is, after having buckwheat for breakfast (the richest source of magnesium), and this kind of soup for lunch, you don’t have to worry about a daily norm.

What You Need

  • Celery root 1
  • Medium-size cabbage 1
  • Carrots 4
  • Onions 4
  • Bell peppers 2
  • Green beans 14 oz.
  • Tomatoes 5
  • Tomato juice 17,5 oz.
  • Garlic, salt, and pepper at your taste
  • Water (optional)

How to make

Peel and finely chop all the veggies.

Take the skin off the tomatoes.

Shred the cabbage.

Place all the veggies into the pot and pour tomato juice over them. If the veggies aren’t fully covered by juice, add some water.

Add salt and pepper. You can add some garlic if you like. Cook the soup until veggies get tender, which is about 15 minutes after it starts boiling. To make the soup more appealing, mix it with a blender. You will get an excellent pure vegetable soup.

Such simple and healthy soup should be in any diabetic’s diet. It has many useful substances, while it’s very low in carbohydrates.

Eat for lunch only healthy dishes. Don’t forget to count the bread units and take into consideration the glycemic index.
