Hey everyone, Kelly here back from Life Made Sweeter again. Today I’m sharing this healthy and delicious Detox Vegetable Soup.

It’s the perfect way to help you get back on track if you’ve been indulging in too many sweets during the holidays. If eating healthier is one of your New Year’s resolutions, this soup is an easy way to get started.

This Detox Vegetable Soup is packed with tons of nutritious veggies, immune-boosting herbs and makes you feel warm, wholesome and nourished. The best part is, this recipe comes together in just 20 minutes in one large pot. So cleanup is a breeze!

What’s Inside this Detox Vegetable Soup?

What I love about this soup is that it’s so easy to customize with what you like or have on hand. It’s packed with detoxifying vegetables and leafy greens like kale, broccoli and celery.

The purple cabbage, diced tomatoes, cauliflower and carrots add color and help to fill you up. While the lemon and ginger add a nice zing and help to boost your immune system. And finally, the spices and fresh herbs tie the flavors together.

And to make it a complete meal, you can serve the soup as a side with a lean protein (such as chicken, turkey, or fish). Or if you want to bulk it up even more, feel free to add the protein, beans or low carb noodles to the soup for a whole meal!
