Detox 2017 - Day 5 // Ayurvedic detox soup {gluten free + vegan }

Soup is one of my biggest favorites. A good soup has magical powers to energize while you feel like sunshine is coming out of your whole being. (Sounds stupid, I know). In many coultures, peope even believe that soup has healing power.

This ayurvedic detox soup contains my favorite spices that not only taste good but also help digestion, cleansing the blood and the lympatic system, they even boost the immune system. If it's not enough, this is a simple recipe that hydrates and easy to digest, rich in mineras and detoxifies the body. 

Ayurveda teaches that the base of overall good health is good digestion. So to say, the good digestive fire ("Agni" in sanskrit). When this inner fire or agni shines bright you feel light, easy, energetic and strong. When your agni is weak you're imbalanced. You might feel exhausted al the time, letargic, your mind is cloudy, your body feels heavy and you become lazy or even depressed. 

After a season like Christmas-NYE  when everybody eats heavy, greasy meals, drinks a lot, runs from friends to relatives, meanwhile you fill your mouth with salty or sweet snacks whenever you can, it's easy to fall out of balance. Your agni gets weak. I wrote about different kinds of detoxing methods, one of them is a soup detox. It's a simple way to cleanse your body and still eat filling, delicous food.
