Diana’s Vegetable Soup (Detox Version)

Being creative has been the key to my succes in this 14 Day Detox by combining vegetables that I enjoy and cooking them with LOVE. You may also use this recipe for the final stage of the Detox,

Ingredients:

  • Small acorn squash
  • Green beans
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 2 small yellow squash
  • Bock choy
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin Olive oil
  • Salt, pepper, curry or any spice/flavor you like
  • You may add any other vegetable you like: tomato, broccoli, cauliflower etc.    The reason I choose these vegetables is because they are starchy carbohydrates, meaning they are going to fill me up.
