Detoxing, Warming Potassium Broth
I make this broth every night on all my detox retreats. This is a simple, yet powerful, detoxing soup that’s high in essential potassium which helps generate energy, particularly in the brain. It’s also a vital element to help your heart create a “heartbeat”. It’s an essential part of all my detox programmes and I recommend having it at night for dinner as part of a lighter evening meal to help your digestion through the night.
Also fantastic when you’ve overindulged and you just want to ‘recharge’ with a simple meal. You can vary slightly the ingredients if you have some vegetables that need eating. Eat chopped or blended as you wish, hot or cold as well.
It’s important to use only organic vegetables to help your liver detox rather than add any unwanted toxins.
