It is The Detox Soup you all need! I will be the first to tell you the colour is not impressively beautiful, but the taste is, and the benefits are well worth it.  The soup embodies everything you need in a day for greens, and health foods.  Balanced with healthy fats, detoxifying greens, and richness from the peas and coconut milk.

The Detox Soup is plant based, sugar + dairy free, as well as Andrew approved.  We both lead very busy lives so sometimes it is hard to make sure we get our 10-15  servings of vegetables in a day but this soup surely proved us wrong.  If you ever feel like you need a healthy, cleansing soup then you should absolutely try this one!

Note: I tried new photography techniques! What do you we think?

I would serve this soup with a piece of seed + grains garlic toast, or even make it a naughty meal by adding a pizza slice or two!
