This soup is one that does so many wonderful things for you. It's not only yummy, but it's packed with all kinds of great fiber and protein. As we begin the season of renewal, I like to think about ways to remove the old, and bring in the new. Celery, as many of you know, has a ton of positive benefits. It is known to improve memory, blood sugar management, anti-inflammation, heart health... to mention just a few.
Our bodies were naturally designed to detox regularly. This soup is just going to help you reset and help the gut do so in a way that is comforting. It's a lot like reseeding our gardens in the spring, and getting back into the rhythm of our bodies natural ability to detox.
