For starters, I want to thank Rachel from Simple. Honest. Essential for having me here today! I love to connect with other bloggers and share ideas and creativity.
Today I am sharing an easy to make vegetarian detox soup. We all know the feeling after the holidays are over; our bodies are feeling the results of indulgence. It may have been worth it when the holidays were here but it’s a burden when they are over.
A little detoxification is all we need! This soup is perfect to give your body those good nutrients and clean out the bad stuff. It is packed full of detoxifying ingredients including two of my favorites: turmeric, which is an anti-inflammatory and helps detox the liver and ginger, which kicks up your metabolism and is one of the strongest detoxing food out there.
I hope you enjoy and feel the lovely effects of this healthy meal!
What you’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon coconut or olive oil
- ½ large onion, chopped
