Elina recommends making a variety of soups for your cleanse so you don’t get bored. This prophecy will end up haunting me in the end, but I’m not made of money or time, so I decide to make three different soups: one for each daily meal.
I’m following the Soupelina’s Soup Cleanse rules for soup cleansing, since author Elina Fuhrman’s Pinterest presence makes her feel like the unofficial leader of the trend. And Pinterest popularity is how I make all of my choices, which is why I currently own 83 plants, have tiny tattoos all over my fingers and dyed my hair pink. Just kidding. (I only have four plants.)
Here’s what Elina promises with the soup cleanse in her book: “Not only will you look forward to your next meal, you will notice improved energy, fewer headaches, less fatigue and crankiness and the bonus: You will lose weight (up to a pound a day!).”
The next four soups in this plan contain nutrients to help burn fat and elevate your metabolism. Start with a vegetable soup base that you'll prep in advance to last three days. It's a mix of low-sodium veggie broth plus the core four detox ingredients cooked or steamed. Here's how they help you:
Make this apple cinnamon sweet potato soup at the end of the day. This plan uses natural, whole ingredients so you can soup detox as often as you want.
