From Scratch - Detox Soup
● By Robert Frey
Vegan Vegetable and Turmeric Soup
By Alison Howard of Savoring Presence
I planned a healthy Thanksgiving free of the usual suspects gluten, dairy and sugar and I still felt like a detox was in order. I suppose it is because of the quantity of food I consumed. Really, it was so delicious but it came with a price. I felt stuffed. I was over served and the discomfort was looming. When you know what it feels like to live clean and feel clean you can’t stand to feel any other way.
Monday, I threw in the towel. Thanksgiving was behind me and the detoxing began. What a better way to detox than to jump on the vegetable super highway? The dilemma is I know that by committing to a day or more of a vegan diet I’d have to consume a lot of food to sustain my active lifestyle. Those days, it feels like I am eating all day which seems counterproductive to detoxing. However, it's not. Feeling hungry is the worst and I don’t just get hungry. I get “hangry.”
Baked sweet potatoes and roasted vegetables galore. In addition, I made a Vegan Detox Vegetable and Turmeric Soup. I was thrilled with the outcome and I am happy to share it with you here.
This soup is one I could eat over and over again. It’s packed with nutritious vegetables and it’s filling. Happy detoxing anytime your body craves a clean out.
