Rather than go on a juice cleanse, keep your body nourished with a soup cleanse.
We love organic, cold-pressed juice as much as anyone. But juice cleanses? Hmm. We’re not crazy about indulging in multiple bottles of the stuff per day, given all that fruit sugar with little fiber or protein to mitigate the sugar’s impact or nourish the body. Eek.
This year, we’re warming up to a new cleanse trend that incorporates whole fruits and vegetables: souping. Blended soups keep fiber and protein intact, so they promise a more filling and nutrient-dense way to give the system a rest from solid foods and toxins, while bone broths offer a collagen- and mineral-rich warm-up.
Los Angeles-based soup delivery company Soupure is leading the local soup charge with a collection of all-organic warm vegetables soups, chilled fruit-and-nut soups, healing bone broths and fruit-infused alkaline waters.
