We’re all fans of the occasional detox. Unfortunately, not all detoxes are created equal.
In the case of our soup cleanse, however, you can rest assured that work is occurring naturally, improving the performance of your gut, kidneys, liver, lymphatic system, and skin, as well as rebooting your digestive system and boosting your immune system.
In particular, we recommend first only doing the soup cleanse for one day, then a month later, do a three-day soup cleanse.
You can, and should, easily eat five or six bowls of soup each day while on the cleanse, in addition to lots of water – as a rule of thumb, we suggest half your weight in ounces daily.
Without any further ado, enjoy our recipe tips below:
