Nutritional values

This classic Greek soup is low in calories, while the whole wheat noodles in it provide complex carbohydrates. The cabbage also provides some bioactive plant substances, and plenty of satiating fiber.

If you have a little time, prepare the chicken stock yourself, so you can season to your personal preferences. You can also increase the protein content of the meal with diced chicken.
