Juicing isn’t for everyone. It can be a good way to reset your body and get back on track with healthy eating but it can also leave some people feeling tired and irritable.
So if you’d like to try a cleanse, but want something with a little more sustenance, try a soup cleanse (aka souping). It’s like juicing, except instead of only drinking juice, you’ll only have soup.
Souping has been gaining exposure thanks to Soupure, a Los Angeles-based company, that sells 1,200 calorie PureCure cleanse packages. The product line includes organic cold and hot soups, broths and Alkaline water. Founders Angela Blatteis and Vivienne Vella say it’s a more satisfying way to cleanse. “The body requires food in a variety of forms, raw and not raw, to feel optimally good,” Soupure co-founder Blatteis told wellandgood.com. “Our collagen-rich cooked bone broth or vegetable consommé that is warmed and consumed in the morning will clear the gut, fend off colds and warm up the entire system. Cooking our soups also allows your body to absorb more plant-based nutrient power than juices.”
What appeals to you more: a juice cleanse or a soup cleanse?
