Blogging Marathon# 64: Week 1/ Day 3

Theme: Detox Diet

Dish: Detox Soup with Carrot & Green Beans

What I really liked about this 3-day detox diet is that we never felt we were dieting or eating less in the 3 days. The portions of all the meals are quite substantial and we are also allowed 2 snacks each day — either 1oz. of nuts and/ or 2 pieces of fruit. Today I have the recipe for the soup that is served for dinner during the cleanse.


It is a simple soup with carrot and green beans. Make the full batch on the first day and you are good to go for the next 2 days. Hot soup is poured over fresh spinach and chopped dill and then steeped for 5 minutes for the greens to wilt.

This soup is a soothing option to make anytime of the year. Turmeric, a popular spice used in Indian cooking, is an especially rich source of curcumin, an antioxidant that fights inflammation.
