5 Day Summer Soup Cleanse

Why do I cleanse?

I like to do a detox cleanse 3 or 4 times of year, I find it helps to boost my immune system, eliminate cravings, gain energy, detox's my liver and other vital organs, my brain function improves, and of course weight loss.

There are a multitude of cleanses, so why do I prefer a soup cleanse over any other cleanse?

Easy soups don't take a lot of time to make, which makes it easy to fit into a busy schedule and two pots of soup will be more than enough for me for the full 5 days. 

The soups I choose are full of vegetables making it a very efficient way to consume the recommended 5 servings a day, and unlike juicing soups don't react with my re-flux.

Throughout the 5 days I will post about the day in regards to energy levels, moods, health and anything else that may come up throughout the day.

While this is a soup cleanse, I will be enjoying a protein smoothie in the mornings as a part of the cleanse, which I have put together from my own experimentation on myself.

Please note that while I am a trained energy healer, I am not a trained dietitian or nutritionists, and the below recipes are a collection of some of my favorites and what  I have found works well for me from my own research into health and wellness.  So please check with your medical practitioner first before embarking on this or any other cleanse.

For those who are joining me on the summer soup cleanse journey please share your story along with me and let's leap into 2020 healthier and more vibrant then ever.

Some Basic rules while on a cleanse, no alcohol, no diary, no sugar, no meats.  It is for only 5 days.  Happy cleansing :)
