DETOX CAULIFLOWER SOUP-BORDER

Detox Cauliflower Soup

There’s something about soup that warms your soul, clears your mind and energizes you. This soup contains detox powers from each ingredient, flushing toxins from your body and restoring with vital nutrients.  Leeks and onions help to support immunity, while cauliflower and cabbage are cruciferous veggies that contain indole-3-carbinol to power up liver detoxification. Apple cider vinegar helps to alkalize your body, soothing inflammatory fires. Soups also help to hydrate you and this one is rich in cleansing fiber.  You can make 2 versions of this one: clear broth version and two: a puree blended version, this way you’ll have variety to have throughout the week!  I usually make 2 detox soups to change it up for  a week of detoxing, simply adding different spices can also give you a different spin!
