Detoxification is based, in principle, on feeding your body, while releasing the toxins accumulated in it. Here’s a simple and extremely effective way, nutritionists say, to detoxify your body: detox with soup! We have gathered some useful information about how it’s done, what it’s based on and what the benefits are!
When you think about detoxification, you probably first think of foods that are easy to digest and rich in nutrients. Soups and teas are loaded with the nutrients and minerals you need to regenerate the cells.
Detox with Vegetable Soup and Turmeric Tea
It is recommended that the soup should be consumed six times a day during this detox plan, which lasts for three days. Detoxification does not refer to depriving or measuring calories, but rather to feeding the body with the nutrients it needs to recover and gain strength.
Make the soup in advance so you have enough for six servings a day for the next three days.
Perfect vegetables for winter food are: onions, beets, carrots, cauliflower, spinach, dark green leaves and root vegetables in general.
How is it prepared?
You can use soup as the base. Chop the desired vegetables and add them to the prepared base in a saucepan. The mixture will then be boiled and let cook until vegetables are tender. Then, using a hand blender or high power mixer, turn the vegetables into a puree and roast until the soup becomes smooth and creamy. Pasta soups are much easier to digest, so this makes detoxification treatment extremely effective!
Consume a portion of soup six times a day. If you feel that you need to eat more, add one more serving or two until you feel satisfied.
If you feel dehydrated during soup detox, consume a cup of water with half a lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey or a cup of coconut water to restore minerals.
During detoxification with soup, turmeric tea is also recommended. You can drink this tea as a substitute for morning coffee. This tea is anti-inflammatory, strengthens digestion and stimulates the immune system.
