Today I’m sharing “Dr. Group’s Liver Cleanse Soup” recipe for the Recipe ReDux theme for October 2017.
The theme for this month is: “Good Gut Health – With cold and flu season upon us, the best defense may be good gut health. Since much of our immune health begins in the gut, show us your healthy, delicious recipe to bolster gut health.”
I chose to share this recipe for two reasons. First, it is extremely healthy and nourishing. Second, I just completed Dr. Group’s Liver Cleanse Program last week and thought it would be perfect for this month’s theme.
This is actually the fourth Global Healing Center Liver Cleanse I’ve done over the past several years and have always enjoyed the detox soup at the end of the cleanse.
I made a few minor changes to the original recipe, only adding extra amounts of some of the veggies.
It’s a homemade soup made with herbs and vegetables that are naturally high in sulphur and glutathione, which help cleanse the liver of harmful chemicals.
But you don’t have to do a liver cleanse to enjoy this healthy soup! It only takes about 15 minutes to prep the veggies, then everything is put into one pot to simmer for about an hour. That’s it!
This healthy recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, lectin-free, soy-free, nut-free and paleo-friendly.
