a slim and healthy woman celebrating springtime

Spring heralds a time of fresh clean, lighter fare. It is a welcome change from heavy winter foods higher in carbs and saturated fats. And, it’s the perfect time to give your liver a vacation, and purify your system with a detox soup that provides filling fluid to decrease appetite so you’re not tempted to overeat.

My special soup features cilantro, an herb that is known to chelate heavy metals and toxins from the body. It also includes bone broth that promotes gut and digestive health, as well as supports joint mobility, skin, hair, and nails, and better sleep. And finally, cage-free omega rich eggs, which provide an excellent source of satisfying protein and are loaded with vitamins, minerals and nutrients that the body needs for energy production.

Take your detox to the next level this weekend

Since chlorophyll-rich greens are the hallmark of the spring season, my detox soup not only acts as a perfect spring tune-up, but is sure to satisfy and nourish your body and soul. It’s one of the easiest detoxes I’ve ever created, and it works!

You can start this weekend.

How my Spring Detox Soup works

Here’s what makes this soup recipe so effective (and satiating):

  • Bone Broth

    Bone broth is plentiful in minerals, collagen, and glutamine for healing the gut, plus some healthy fats to tamp down hunger. It is a very healthy source of protein, found in connective tissues, muscles, bones, tendons, blood vessels, and digestive system. Bone broth can help soothe achy bones and muscles, fight inflammation and infections, and increase energy, in addition to helping heal and seal a leaky gut.

  • Eggs

    Eggs are rich in sulfur (the detox mineral) and the amino acids methionine, cysteine, glycine, glutamine, and taurine. Your liver needs sulfur and these acids to successfully complete phase 2 of its detox process. Eggs offer the lecithin your liver needs to produce the beautiful bile your body needs to break down fat and absorb fat-soluble vitamins A, E, K, and D.

  • Cilantro

    Cilantro is an incredibly versatile herb. Not only is it packed with flavor and zing, it is also packed with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium, potassium, magnesium, and folate. This tasty herb gives a simple and delicious way to tame the toxins and mobilize heavy metals in preparation to be carried out of the body, primarily from adipose (fat) tissue. Cilantro binds these harmful metals and loosens them from the tissue which helps to eliminate them from the body.
