A wonderful way to balance your liver is to detox. I am not talking juicing detox but a vegetable soup that will help to eliminate toxins from your body and get your way on to balance. It will get rid of additives in foods, foods we have become addicted to, air pollutants, alcohol... and the list goes on and one. We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with pollutants and destructive matter for our cells. The healthier we keep our cells the more we protect our DNA. When we provide good balanced nutrition for our body we create an environment for our DNA to thrive and express healthy genes versus disease causing genes.
From a nutrition stand point we need to be consuming detoxing items/recipes like this one every 2-3 days. It will help to balance our hormones, detox our liver, and continually recharge our cells with a boost of healthy nutrients.
This recipe takes no time at all and is wonderful to have a batch in the fridge for the week. You can make it only in 15 minutes, which is a great time saving recipe and you know also that you are having a healthy wholesome meal to refuel and recharge your cells.
