  7. Dr. Helene’s Detox Cabbage...

This Detox Cabbage Soup is one of my all-time favorites!  It’s so easy to make, just all all the ingredients to a large pot and simmer on the stove and voila! Your soup is ready to eat in a jiffy.

Why is Cabbage out good to eat during a Detox?
Not only is cabbage soup light, nourishing and healthy, but the cabbage itself has diuretic properties. That means the cabbage helps to rid your body of excess toxins and fluids! This soup assists your body with cleaning out your colon because it’s easy to digest.
