When Nicole Centeno created the first-ever commercial soup cleanse through her Brooklyn-based soupery, Splendid Spoon, she knew she was on the cusp a powerful new health trend. Souping detoxifies and cleanses the body with vitamins and nutrients to lose weight and feel amazing. Unlike the wildly popular juice cleanses that are loaded with sugar and skimp on fiber, a soup cleanse provides a nutrient-dense, fiber-dense alternative: slow-cooked, chewable soup.
Juice is just a beverage, soup is a meal! Centeno's love of healthy eating and cooking began as a child, picking vegetables in her family's garden and foraging for wild berries with her mother. This passion led Centeno to study at The French Culinary institute and teach cooking and nutrition courses at Columbia University. In this book, this busy mother of two young boys shares her easy tips and popular recipes. Containing 75 delicious, plant-based soup recipes, The Soup Cleanse Cookbook features a customizable plan with five soup categories that can be mixed and matched to fit anyone's needs.
Chaszar understands that diets fail and cleanses can be intimidating. Her helpful suggestions simplify cleansing, whether it's a once-a-week reset or a multi-day detox. The Soup Cleanse Cookbook makes mindful eating and living truly splendid.
