There is only one recipe used by the Sacred Heart diet and that is the soup that is eaten on every day of the diet, which contains tomatoes, green onions, beef broth, chicken noodle soup mix, green peppers, green beans, celery and carrots. This soup can be eaten as much as the dieter wants during the 7-day period of the diet.
This soup is very simple to fix and has a very short cooking time, which is just until the vegetables are tender after approximately 10 minutes of boiling. The beef broth can be substituted for chicken broth and any type of fat-free soup mix can be traded out for the chicken soup mix. Another version of the soup includes chicken noodle soup, celery, string beans, carrots, potatoes, green peppers and onions.
The Sacred Heart diet is a very unstructured and liberal on how much someone can eat. The main rule is that people need to eat mostly the soup. There are other rules for each day of the diet. The first day allows the dieter to eat any fruit they want, except bananas, and all the soup they want. The instructions change from day to day and gradually let dieters eat more and more types of food. Restrictions change and the most sugar-filled and carbohydrate-filled items, such as bananas and potatoes, get the most limitations during the diet, but are never fully excluded from the list of foods that a person can eat.
