Beet Soup

Beets, grapefruit and dandelion are the three spring cleanse foods. Beets thin and support the flow of bile which decongests the liver. Beets also support the blood and have a laxative cleansing effect.

Lemon juice is a powerful cholagogue that also flushes bile and empties the gall bladder. Parsley is a digestive and diuretic. Simple, but with a Mediterranean flare.


  1. 2 c of beets

  2. 1/4 tsp of black pepper

  3. 1/4 c of celery stalk

  4. 1/2 tsp of cumin

  5. 1/2 whole lemon

  6. 1/4 c parsley

  7. 1/4 tsp mineral salt

  8. 1 tbsp of sunflower oil


Dice beets and celery and add them to a large pot. Add salt and lemon juice. Add water until vegetables are submerged and bring to a boil. In a separate pan, sauté cumin seeds in oil and add to the soup, cooking until beets are soft. Chop fresh parsley and garnish over the top
