What Makes Chef V’s Soups So Great

DNA Testing For Weight Loss: Is This Growing Health Trend Worth It?

Green drinks and blended juices always tend to hog the spotlight when it comes to cleanses. While it is true that they play a starring role, you can’t make it through an extended cleanse on juice alone. Enter our signature healthy detox soups.

When it comes to soups, we have a truly fantastic pair ready to serve up with every cleanse package. While you might notice that some of the most important ingredients for healthy detox soups show up in both, we’ve also made sure that each has a special flair all its own.

The Ginger Carrot-Zing Soup more than lives up to its flashy name. As expected, this carrot ginger detox soup starts off with (you guessed it!) ginger and carrot. It then adds some nutritious veggies in yams and onions, and some healthy spices with garlic and turmeric – with a splash of sea salt and filtered water for flavor.

The Sweet Potato Curry Soup is pretty close to the same. It just does a little shuffling on the vegetable front – the carrots and yams are traded for sweet potato and leeks, with a little special curry powder added in for extra deliciousness.

The Super Ingredients
By design, a lot of ingredients are found in both of our healthy detox soups. These detox vegetable soups have been designed specifically for getting the most out of a juice cleanse, and pair perfectly with our other products. Our healthy detox soups will fuel you to roll right through our 21-day cleanse.

While carrots being good for your eyesight might be a really interesting myth, they do contain a ton of vitamin A and C. This means that they’re great for your immune system and even better for the health of your hair and skin. In other words, carrot-based soups won’t just make you feel great, they’ll also help you look great too!

Yams are a real powerhouse of a fruit, which is why we’ve given them a starring role in our carrot ginger detox soup. Being packed full of great vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin D5, potassium, and manganese is one thing. But they’re also great for digestive health due to the particular starches found within them – perfect for a detox cleanse.

Sweet Potato
Just like yams (which they are often confused with), sweet potatoes are crazy good for your digestion, and so crazy good to include in your healthy detox soups. Their heavy doses of vitamin C and choline help boost your immune system and reduce inflammation, keeping you at your healthiest throughout your cleansing period.

Leeks are first cousins with onions and garlic. This family of vegetables is known to regulate cholesterol and improve heart health – perfect for someone trying to cut back on dangerous cholesterol levels with a cleanse.

Aromatic onions should be the base of all great soups. Onions contain quercetin, an antibacterial that perfectly complements a detox juice cleanse.

Like onions, garlic wards off bad bacterias, toxins, and vampires the common cold.

It wouldn’t be our famous carrot ginger detox soup without the ginger. And it wouldn’t be nearly as good for you either. A good cleanse means a healthy digestive system, and there are few things better for a digestive system than ginger. Ginger is packed with digestive boosting and anti-inflammatory properties.

Last but far from least, turmeric is known to aid in digestion, as well as improve heart and liver health. In fact, it’s often noted as one of the world’s new superfoods.

10 Tips For Making Healthy Detox Soups

When you’re looking to cleanse, lose weight, and keep up a nutritional diet all at once, soup can be a lifesaver. And with colder weather coming, it can be a delicious way to warm up as well.

Here are our top tips on making the most nutritional detox soups at home, as well as making soups suitable for weight loss.

#1 Veggies, Veggies, Veggies

This tip should be no surprise to anyone. Vegetable-based soups are always going to be the healthiest. They’re also excellent for weight loss since they’re naturally low in fat content and high in nutrition.

#2 Use All of the Vegetable

Did you know that the stalks of vegetables like leeks hold amazing nutritional value? Too often we just take all that extra nutrition and throw it right in the trash. Do some research on the ingredients you are using to see how much of it you can include to maximize nutrition and minimize food waste.

#3 Avoid the Fat

If you’re making your own detox soup recipes at home, make sure to avoid stocks and bases that are fat-heavy. This means no cream bases or additions either – you’ll sabotage your entire weight loss plan right then and there.

#4 Embrace Superfoods…

Of course, not all veggies are created equal. For detox soup recipes, you want as much bang for your buck as possible. Aim to include plenty of “superfoods” – vegetables and fruits bursting with vitamins, minerals, and other healthy nutrients like antibacterials. For example, we base one of our Chef V Detox soup recipes around sweet potatoes, which pack a mean nutritious punch.

#5 … and Super Spices

It’s not just the main ingredients that need to be maximized. Additional flavors like garlicginger and turmeric add flavor and contribute to the soup’s nutritional value.

#6 Cut the sodium

The dangers of too much sodium are well documented, and you should take this into account when plotting out a detox soup diet plan. Use reduced sodium stocks and try to avoid adding too much table salt.

#7 Boost the fiber

While you should cut sodium, you should add in extra fiber. You can increase fiber in soup by blending in hardy vegetables and fruits like sweet potatoes. This serves two purposes. First, the fiber will help with your digestion and the detox process as a whole. Second, fiber will help you feel satiated and minimize pesky cravings.

#8 Go for organic

Detox soup recipes for weight loss are designed to help you, well, lose weight. But a good detox soup diet should also be helping you flush out toxins as well. Why sabotage this by putting more processed junk back into your system?

#9 Puree 

Pureed soups minimize the strain on your digestive system. Keep your soups silky smooth to ensure proper digestion.

#10 Make it delicious! 

Detox soups should be delicious, plain and simple. Use high-quality, organic fruits and vegetables as the base of your soups. Then build out the flavor profile with nutritional aromatics and spices like onions, garlic, ginger, and turmeric. You stand the best chance of succeeding in your cleanse if you actually enjoy the food you're eating slurping.
