What does a detox soup do? It adds a TON of nutrient-packed vegetablesto your meal. It detoxes your body in a way that is gentle and nourishing. Detox soups have anti-inflammatory ingredients which can help reduce pain and inflammation you may have in your body.

What soups help you lose weight? Detoxifying soups that you have during a soup cleanse like this detox soup recipe can help you lose weight by replacing the heavier, cream-based soups. The great thing is that this soup tastes delicious! The cabbage soup diet from the 80’s it’s not. A soup detox doesn’t have to feel punishing.

  • olive oil

How to Make Detox Soup

Other than the chopping of the veggies, this soup is very easy.

First, chop up the usual suspects of onions, celery, and carrots.

The bonus vegetable in this soup is sweet potato! Sweet potatoes are an abundant source of beta-carotene, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential in helping the body fight off infections, and remain resistant to any further infections.

The secret ingredient that ties this soup together is smoked paprika.

It goes well with the flavor of the sweet potato and is so warm and comforting.

Next, I use beans for some added protein and I like the taste of them with the smoky paprika.

Finally, stir it all together with vegetable broth and simmer it all in your big soup pot on the stove. Have a couple of cups water on hand to add in bit by bit so it doesn’t reduce too much.

Even the broth will be bursting with vitamins and minerals after simmering with the veggies.

Serving Suggestions and Substitutions:

  • Serve with shredded chicken if you would like added protein.
  • Add a teaspoon of cleansing spices such as ginger, rosemary, oregano, and turmeric.
  • Substitute broccoli for the sweet potatoes.
  • Swap in quinoa instead of the beans.
  • Substitute cilantro or fresh basil for the parsley.
  • Squeeze in a tablespoon of fresh lime or lemon juice.

My New Years Cleanse Routine:

This time of year is especially indulgent. I read a statistic the other day that the average person gains three to five pounds over the holidays.

It doesn’t sound like that much, but if you don’t lose it those pounds can add up. Three pounds times ten years is THIRTY extra pounds. Yikes. Sneaky sneaky. It can creep up so slowly.

Now, you can see why a detox is such a timely idea after Christmas/New Years’. I would estimate that the extra three to five will disappear in about twelve days. ?

I also like to think of it as more of a reset than a new years diet. A 10 day detox is meant to reintroduce a ton of vegetables and homemade meals and snacks back into your routine. To remind you of how good it feels to fuel your body with the food it loves.

FULL DISCLOSURE! I’m not a doctor. Shocking, I know. If you have any medical conditions or have never done any kind of cleanse, please run things past your GP. I am not giving medical advice and don’t know your individual situation. Again, speak to YOUR doctor.

Secondly, this is a recounting of my experience. Some may think it’s too little food, others may think too much, etc. We are all unique and what works for me might not work for you. Use my detox routine as a guideline and modify it to suit your own needs/goals.

Here are the rules I follow for my cleanse:

  • no dairy
  • no caffeine
  • eliminate processed sugar
  • no alcohol
  • lots of veggies, fruit, and healthy fats are the staples

This is a typical day:

I start every day with hot water and lemon. I sprinkle in some cayenne pepper for good measure (it helps to naturally heat your body which is said to aid in detoxification ) but it’s totally optional.

Stock up on those lemons!

Next, comes a piece or two of fruit.

‘Tis the season for clementines! Yum yum.

About half an hour after the fruit it’s smoothie time.

I like hydrating green smoothies like this – Detox Green Smoothie

Maybe an hour or two after my breakfast I’ll have a handful of almonds and another clementine.

This keps me going while I get the preparations underway for this amazing fat-flushing detoxifying vegetable soup.

I will have a generous bowl of this detox soup for lunch and dinner. It is so satisfying!

The broth is rich and warm and I love the smokiness from the paprika.

Another bowl of veggie soup for dinner and I was good until my evening snack.

For my snack I thoroughly enjoyed my Cinnamon Apple Snacks smothered in almond butter and practically licked my plate. I adore this snack.

Throughout the day I drink lots of water and herbal tea. I like peppermint tea and green tea with a squeeze of lemon.
