Fall Detox Vegetable Soup

by Cheryl Baker on June 14, 2018

Soups are always a tasty and versatile food to have. In this recipe the ingredients used, serve to help detox the body of harmful toxins. Contrary to what many people may believe, detoxing doesn't always require making extreme dietary changes or going on month long fasts. Our bodies naturally cleanses itself of toxins on a daily basis. However sometimes our bodies do need that little bit of extra help.

One of my favorite ingredients that is used in this recipe is the butternut squash. Butternut squash is a part of the gourd family and is very similar to a pumpkin. Useful nutrients include Vitamin A, C, zinc, protein, folate and potassium. Butternut also has great antioxidant properties which make it great for a detoxing diet.
