A 3-Day Soup Cleanse For A Warming Detox
When you think of detox, think of easy-to-digest, nutrient-rich foods.Detox is as much about nourishing your body as it is releasing toxins from it. In addition to juicing, there’s another, warmer way to detox and replenish: the soup cleanse.This soup is loaded with the nutrients and minerals you need for cell regeneration.Drink soup six times a day,which I recommend doing for three days…..yes three days,you can do it!
Being a health and fitness coach I always tell my clients to listen to their bodies. If you need to add clean sources of protein (either plant-based or not) to your soup, please do. Detox is not about deprivation or calorie counting, but rather about nourishing your body with the nutrients it needs to rebuild and recharge.
How To Soup Cleanse: Use bone or vegetable broth as your base. Chop desired vegetables and add them to your broth in a saucepan. Vegetables that are wonderful for nourishing in the winter are: garlic,onions, beets, carrots, cauliflower, spinach and any dark leafy greens.Bring to a boil, turn down heat and let simmer until vegetables are tender. Then, using an immersion blender or high-powered blender, puree until soup is smooth and creamy. Pureed Soups are easier to digest, hence making your detox highly effective.
If you feel dehydrated during your soup cleanse, consume 20 ounces of water with 1/8 teaspoon sea salt, the juice of ½ a lemon, and a teaspoon of honey or 4 ounces of coconut water to replenish minerals.
