One good way to rid the body of toxins is with nutrient-charged soups, says Cherie Calbom (www.juiceladycherie.com), a best-selling author and nutritionist whose latest book, “Souping Is the New Juicing,” includes a toxicity quiz.
“Soup can be a part of any detox program,” Cherie says. “What if you never changed the oil or filters in your car? Our bodies are a bit like our cars. They have filter systems that need to be cleaned out and fluids that need to be flushed out. That’s where soup comes in, offering an abundance of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
” Cherie holds a master’s degree in whole foods nutrition from Bastyr University. Known as “The Juice Lady” for her work with juicing and health, she is the author of 33 books.
