Special thanks to my friends at Southern Breeze Sweet Tea for sponsoring this delicious and diet friendly post! All opinions are my own.
GOOD AFTERNOON! I’m sitting at my desk looking out on trees with new-green leaves and blooms on my hydrangeas. The birds are chirping in my little corner of the world and the smell of rain still hangs in the spring air. It’s as if the earth feels refreshed, and that makes me feel refreshed, too! With that in mind, I just popped a cold brew Sweet Tea bag into my glass of water and in a few minutes I’ll add some ice and start sipping. Raspberry is my starting flavor most days, but I eventually make my way to all of them. I have been keeping a little basket of Sweet Tea bags on my desk (photo right) so I just switch flavors throughout the day and keep on sippin’ while I work! No hot water needed, just add the bag to room temp water, wait about five minutes, and add ice for perfectly sweetened no calorie tea, smooth as a Southern Breeze. I LOVE their fruit flavored teas and this allows me to switch up flavors throughout the day without having to stop and brew a whole pitcher. They are also perfect to toss in your purse and take on the go.
Today I’m sharing an easy breezy recipe for supper that is delicious and friendly to a multitude of diets including but not limited to: Keto, Atkins, Low Carb, Weight Watchers, Paleo, and more. It’s also something new you can do with cabbage for those of you who may have been cabbaged out (because it is such a great veggie!). But my favorite part is that it all cooks up together on one sheet pan so you can have time for more worthy pursuits – like sipping sweet tea on your back porch.
Speaking of back porches, in Alabama it is finally warm enough to spend time on ours again. Sure, it’s been a little rainy but I’ve found many a sunny patch peeping out from those rainclouds. I like to take little breaks throughout my day to step out there, slow down my thoughts a bit, and consider my blessings. Goodness knows we spend a good bit of our day considering our stressors – and I’ve learned that giving blessings equal (or more) time is the key to balance and happiness. It’s simply a matter of taking time to focus on the goodness of life.
Like family suppers. Let’s get cooking!
Begin by mixing up the spices. This is my personal little blend that I’m sharing today and I just love it. It’s perfect for steak, chicken, veggies, or just as a seasoning topping on the table.
Then, cut your cabbage into thick slices about 1 inch thick. Drizzle olive oil on a large baking sheet and add cabbage slices on top. Add steak tips.
Drizzle more olive oil over steak tips and cabbage and toss both a bit to coat them. Sprinkle spice mixture liberally over all.
Note: See the parchment? I was feeling all organized that day. It makes cleanup easier but is not required 😉
Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes, or until cabbage steaks or lightly browned and steak is desired doneness.
Enjoy this healthy meal with a tall glass of zero calorie guilt free sweet tea!

Disclosure: I love Southern Breeze Sweet Tea but I have been compensated for this post. I am not an employee of Southern Breeze or Harris Tea Company but an independent website owner and all opinions are my own. In fact, I drank three glasses of tea while writing this very post. My opinion right now is that Raspberry is the best, but that is just because I am drinking it. The cold brew flavors are kind of like children, we can’t really choose a favorite because we love them all! Have a wonderful day. 🙂
