Fall Detox Soup - Gluten-free + Vegan

It’s day 3 of the 5-Day Fall Cleanse, which means we are past the halfway point. I hope you have been following along with Sherrie and I are on Facebook  and Instagram pages (links below) where we are sharing every single thing we are eating. I actually wish I had it in my schedule to do this cleanse for longer, I am truly enjoying it. Since I don’t, that just means I will go forward eating more mindfully again, which is one of the main reasons I love a cleanse. It resets everything, it gets me back to being focused and aware, listing to my body and eating intuitively. It is the the best way for me, that I have found to stop bad habits in their tracks and get back to feeling my best.

My favorite thing about a cleanse in the cooler months, is being able to make a huge pot of soup to enjoy throughout the cleanse. It makes mealtime easy and stress-free. It guarantees that I always have something healthy to choose from and it keeps me from making any crazy decisions.

Fall Detox Soup - Gluten-free + Vegan

This particular soup is filled with the best of what is in season right now. If some of these ingredients aren’t available near you, improvise with what you do have. This soup was literally inspired by what we had left from our last CSA box (we get our next box later today) and what looked best at the market.

I went with Aduki beans for a protein, as they are far easier to digest than most other legumes and they are known to help the liver to detoxify. Just a quarter cup of azuki beans contains 100% of the recommended daily intake of molybdenum, a trace mineral that produces the enzyme sulfite oxidase which is crucial for liver detoxification. Azuki beans are one of the highest in protein and lowest in fat and they are loaded with soluble fiber. The high iron content also makes them a good choice for women’s health. In Japan, aduki bean soups are often consumed after menstruation to replenish red blood cells.

This soup is so comforting, so warming and really makes you feel good! I love the hint of flavor from the apple cider vinegar that I added at the end. You could also opt for lemon or lime juice instead. Feel free to use whatever fresh herbs you have on hand and enjoy. I had fresh oregano from the market and a huge rosemary bush in our yard. I feel like a broken record, since I literally say this on almost every recipe on my site, but please feel free to tweak this and make it your own.

I’m feeling great! Had one tiny headache, and a moment of feeling kind of drained in the morning, but otherwise, it feels great to go to bed every night and wake up every morning without that, “Ugh, I shouldn’t have eaten that” feeling!

That’s THE best part of cleansing. No guilt, anywhere. I love it. I felt a tad tired on days 2 and 3 but wow yesterday, day 4 was great. I was full of energy! So glad you are following along with us!

This recipe was just what I needed to use up the rest of the goodies from my CSA. It turned out perfectly. I love the added apple cider vinegar at the end, such a nice touch!
