Detox Veggie Soup

December 15, 2021

If you’re looking for a way to detox without starving yourself, this soup is for you. It’s one of the best detox veggie soup we’ve ever tasted. It’s loaded with root vegetables and cleansing greens that are pureed to a creamy texture, and full of flavor with spices to help increase metabolism like paprika, cinnamon, and cayenne. It’s the perfect dish any time you feel the need to cleanse as it’s nutrient dense and will keep you full. This recipe makes a lot of soup, so you can either cut the recipe in half, freeze some of it, or consume it throughout the week (since it is a great detox meal). This is an easy and delicious way to get your greens in and doesn’t take long to prepare.

Tip: To make things even easier, pre-chop your veggies the night before preparing the soup
