What Does a Detox Soup Do?

At Get Healthy U, we’re not big on “detox diets” in the way of companies selling cleanses that promise a six-pack using pills and potions. Instead we believe in aiding the body’s already existing detoxification processes naturally. Making healthy soupd like this detox vegetable soup is a great way to do that.

The liver, kidney and colon function as elimination organs and when functioning properly, naturally rid the body of toxins and waste. Eating real food and eliminating processed foods is going to be the best way to ensure that they can carry out their functions most efficiently.

This healthy vegetable soup is a great way to achieve that goal. Containing eight different vegetables, this soup packs a major nutrition punch and gives your body exactly what it needs to naturally detoxify.

What is the Best Soup For Weight Loss?

Soup can also be a great choice for weight loss. You just need to know what to load it up with.

For a weight loss soup, you’re going to want to steer clear of higher calorie ingredients like heavy cream, cheese and sausage for example.

Instead look for a healthy base like vegetable broth or chicken stock, load up on the veggies (who has ever gained weight from eating too many veggies?!), and give it some added flavor boost through fresh and/or dried herbs. All of these ingredients are not only helpful aids for weight loss, but are super healthy and delicious.

This soup is delicious! I will definitely make again. I left out the bell pepper and parsley, and I added cabbage, broccoli and mushrooms. Two thumbs up.

    My husband and I spent an hour looking for the instructions on how to make this...after buying all the ingredients....very frustrating! We never found it either.
