Comforting Ketogenic Cabbage and Bacon Soup
Prep time: 18 minutesCook time: 35 minutes
- 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/2 pound silverbeet, leafy green part and stems separated, trimmed and chopped
- 1/2 pound green cabbage, shredded
- 1/4 pound rindless bacon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 6 cups organic chicken broth
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 large handful of flat-leaf parsley leaves
- Melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for five minutes, or until softened. Stir in the garlic, silverbeet stems and cabbage and cook for five minutes, or until softened.
- Melt the remaining oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook until lightly golden, about four minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel.
- Chop the bacon into 1-inch pieces and stir into the cooked cabbage mixture, then add the turmeric and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
- Stir in the leafy green part of the silverbeet and cook for another five minutes until wilted. Season with salt and pepper. To finish, stir in the parsley leaves and serve.
Don’t Underestimate the Health Benefits of Cabbage
Many people simply pass by and ignore cabbage when they see it in the produce section, not knowing that it actually offers a barrage of benefits. This humble cruciferous vegetable comes loaded with powerful antioxidants like vitamins A and C, as well as phytonutrients sulforaphane, lutein, zeaxanthin and thiocyanates. These nutrients not only stimulate detoxifying enzymes, but they also provide protective effects against certain cancers like breast, colon and prostate.
You can also help reduce inflammation by adding cabbage to your meals, as it offers a wealth of anti-inflammatory nutrients like anthocyanins. You can also get your fair share of B vitamins, including folate, B6, B1 and B5. These B vitamins not only help boost your energy levels, but also help slow shrinkage in brain regions that are impacted by Alzheimer’s disease by as much as sevenfold.
Another wonderful thing about cabbage is that it offers variety; red, green and Savoy are some examples that you can enjoy, each with its own wealth of nutrients. Although best eaten raw, such as in coleslaw, it wouldn’t hurt to add cabbage to your cooked meals every once in a while. If you’re an avid gardener, you can also try growing cabbage at home. This vegetable has a long growing season and can thrive in both warm and cold-weather climates. Check out my article “All About Growing Cabbage” for more helpful tips.
Have You Heard of ‘Silverbeets’ Before?
You’ll probably answer “no,” but you’ll be surprised to know that silverbeet is actually just another name for Swiss chard. While not as popular as other greens like spinach and broccoli, this leafy vegetable offers its own array of benefits, thanks to its impressive nutrient profile. It’s a good source of vitamin C that help fight free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), as well as phytonutrients that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Silverbeet offers vitamins K and A, and antioxidants like alpha carotene, beta carotene, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin. And just like cabbage, it’s rich in B vitamins like folate, B6, thiamin, niacin and pantothenic acid.1
Can Bacon Actually Be Healthy for You?
While it’s true that most processed meats like hotdogs, sausages and salami can wreak havoc on your well-being, I believe that the devil’s in the details. Bacon, for example, can be potentially healthy but only if it is prepared properly and the meat is acquired from high-quality sources.
Bacon from pasture raised pigs provides good amounts of healthy saturated and monounsaturated fat, mainly oleic acid, which is also found in olive oil.2It also offers palmitoleic acid, which has antimicrobial properties, phosphatidylcholine that possesses antioxidant activity superior to vitamin E and fat-soluble vitamin D.
However, do not buy processed bacon sold in supermarkets or groceries, as that is likely loaded with health-harming preservatives. Instead, I advise getting bacon that has been prepared using time-tested traditional methods, so you can ensure that no unhealthy additives are added to the meat. See if your local farmer who raises pastured pigs offers this type of meat.
Be Sure to Use High-Quality Ingredients When Cooking This Dish
To maximize the flavor and the nutrients you can obtain from this recipe, be sure to use organic ingredients, especially for the bone marrow, spices and vegetables. This also ensures that you’re minimizing your risk of ingesting harmful toxins, antibiotics and other pollutants that are lurking inside the ingredients. Similarly, the eggs should be sourced from local, organic, free-range farms to guarantee that you’re consuming high-quality poultry products.
11 pounds in 22 days?
Is it REALLY possible to lose 11 lbs. of fat in 22 days? Actually yes… BUT only when you’re a level 4 fat burner. Unfortunately, most people are stuck as level 1 fat burners. So, how do you become a level 4 fat burner to lose up to 11 lbs. in 22 days? Simply eat these foods daily:
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!
--> Grab your FREE copy of this groundbreaking soft cover book today (while supplies still last.)
To begin, I apologize for the dark nature of today's email.
However I promise what you'll discover today will be completely worth it.
Imagine a rotting corpse draped over your body from head to toe...
...suffocating tissue, restricting blood flow, damaging joints and infecting your healthy cells.
Shockingly, that nightmare is a reality for most:
64% of women and 74% of men carry too much body fat according to the National Institutes of Health.
It's choking their organs, assaulting their metabolism and sucking their energy dry.
But here's the worst part:
For most, this bodyfat has become "calorie-resistant":
It's completely unaffected by even the strictest diets... and most intense exercises.
This zombie fat is essentially... "dead tissue".
That's important for those who have 10, 25 or 50 or more pounds to lose...
AND for those who aren't technically overweight, but have what's called "pocket obesity"...
...unsightly patches of fat that cling to specific places, like:
just above your hips, lower belly, where your butt and legs meet... and even arms, neck and face.
However, there's good news:
Obesity researchers have now discovered a "metabolic jumper cable":
It jolts dead bodyfat back to life.
This allows your metabolism to burn it as calories and re-energize your entire body.
First though, here's the #1 reason why bodyfat becomes calorie-resistant:
It lacks blood flow. This has 3 effects:
- Not enough oxygen or nutrients reach fat cells, so they become unresponsive..
- Released fat can't be sent to other tissues to be burned, so fat cells suck it back in...
- 3) Metabolic hormones carrying the "burn calories" message don't reach the fat cell...
All this means one thing:
Your body can't transform into energy, the 135,000+ of calories the average person stores as fat!
You become a metabolic zombie: NO energy to think. NO energy to move. NO energy to motivate.
Update: calorie-resistant bodyfat can be now removed...
The discovery of this "metabolic jumper cable" can now reverse this process:
- It wakes up un-responsive bodyfat with a powerful calorie-burning hormonal jolt....
- It pops open fat cells, sucks out the fat, sending it off before its yanked back in...
- It shuttles fat to your brain, heart, lungs, kidneys - even your bones - to be burned as energy.
Not only do those layers of "zombie fat" start coming off, but your entire body just works better.
Plus, as your whole body burns more calories, those patches of pocket obesity whittle away.
This "metabolic jumper cable" isn't any exercise, machine or pill.
It's a little-known, calorie-burning hormone we all have... just waiting for the right spark to come alive.
It's not thyroid, leptin, ghrelin, insulin, adiponectin, HGH or any other "fat loss" hormone you may know.
And on this next page, you'll find out precisely how to unleash its calorie-burning power:
PS - Studies show that not only can healthy levels of this powerful calorie-burning hormone devour bodyfat and fortify soft muscle, but it can also reduce your risk of diabetes by 53.7%, a heart attack by 83.3% and stroke by 51.4%. Here's more of the scientific proof...
I bet you can’t guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat.
This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
If this “hidden” most powerful primal muscle is healthy, we are healthy.

Is Bread Really the Staff of Life… or the Stuff of Disease?
For most us, there are few foods more comforting than bread.
Fluffy biscuits, crusty baguettes, flaky croissants… even a simple slice of toast topped with melted butter can taste like heaven.
And that smell… few scents are quite as pleasant as fresh bread baking in the oven.
But there is a lot of confusion as to where bread fits into a healthy diet.
The Bible practically commands followers to eat it: “Give us this day our daily bread…” The government put it at the base of the food pyramid. And for centuries, it has been called “the staff of life.”
Of course, there are some who disagree…
Well-known cardiologist, Dr. William Davis, calls wheat “the perfect chronic poison.”
And for a poison, we sure eat lots of it…
The average American consumes 55 pounds of wheat flour every year, making refined flour the #1 source of calories in the American Diet – a situation that nutrition expert Chris Kresser describes as, “a public health catastrophe.”
So, what is the truth about bread and wheat?
- Is it the perfect poison… or an essential daily food?
- Is “gluten-free” bread better for you than regular bread?
- And can you still eat bread… while maintaining a lean body and optimal health?
The answers to these questions may surprise you!

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works.
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

In the years that I've been working on this website project I've come across some amazing resources by some very special people. I'd like to share them with you here.
NOTE: I update these links often so please check back to see what's new!
1) Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy right? Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this story…
2) Forget what you've read about 10-day lemonade cleanses, 7-day detoxes with green juices and Gwyneth's gruel. All you need to do, and this is perfect for Saturday or or anytime really, is a simple 1-day cleanse.
3) This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
4) I thought it was virtually impossible for a website to be able to tell me anything even a little bit insightful after only submitting my name and date of birth... I was wrong!
5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
