The most important part of a successful detox is to replace inflammatory and hard to digest foods with nourishing an easy to digest foods. When the digestive system is not bogged down by grains, meats, oxidized oils, or refined sugars, it can focus more energy on healing and detoxifying.

How did you soup turn out? Did you add any vegetables or spices that worked really well? Let us know in the comments below!
Do you have to use cinnamon to get the health benefit? I love it but not in savory. And cloves? 🙂
Susan, you can certainly substitute the spices to your liking!
I used several substitutions but the final product was delicious! I cut the recipe in half for the first trial. I used celery instead of broccoli, baby spinach instead of kale, and the organic garlic that was already minced. I cooked according to the instructions. However, after I served my bowl, I then added the baby spinach to my individual serving. The steam from the soup wilted the spinach just fine. Now when i reheat, I will not have soggy spinach! 🙂
Dawn, that sounds absolutely delicious!
