Vegetable Detox Broth Recipe

Detoxifying your body is a simple process, one that your body does naturally and does well! IF it's given the necessary ingredients to do it! Just drinking enough water (and lemon water in the morning) is a detoxing and naturally purifying habit!

It is NOT necessary to include deprivation or "juice-only" plans to cleanse your body.

Along with targeted supplements, and eating the clean, wholesome foods God gave us, you can properly detoxify your organs, gut and entire immune system.

I provide much more information on how to do this in my coaching, but you can also find much more on this topic from Dr. Mark Hyman at his website and in his books.

ONE WAY TO DETOXIFY is TO remove offensive, sludge-building "foods" from your diet

...and feed yourself plenty of vegetables, fibrous foods, lean proteins, and healthy fats instead.

This broth recipe is only one way of many to add in the rich nutrients from those foods, and provides an easy "to-go" way to do that. Make the whole recipe, then let it set to room temp. After it has cooled, refrigerate in a closed container and reheat each serving to just warm before drinking.

{This broth recipe is from Coach Bess' detoxification program, but makes a nutritious, power-packed addition to any dietary plan. It alkalizes the system, making it easier to detoxify, lose weight, and feel great!}

Enjoy 1-2 cups of this broth daily for optimal results. 

Ingredients

  • 3 quarts water
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 2 sliced carrots
  • 1 cup of daikon or white radish root and tops*
  • 1 cup of winter squash cut into large cubes (i.e. butternut, acorn, etc.)
  • 1 cup of root vegetables (turnips, parsnips, rutabagas)
  • 2 cups chopped greens (kale, parsley, collard, mustard, cilantro, chard, etc.)
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1/2 cup seaweed* (nori, dulse, wakame, kelp, or kombu)
  • 1/2 cup cabbage
  • 4 - 1/2 inch slices of peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves of whole garlic (not crushed or chopped)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • {If available, you can add dried shiitake or maitake mushrooms - powerful immune boosters}

    *This item is not necessary, but is a plus if you can find it! If it is difficult to find any of these items at the store, just make the broth with the items you can find – it is best to include the garlic, ginger, and greens every time you make it!

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients at once, and place pot on low boil for approx 60 minutes – could take a little longer. (Or put it all in the crock pot and forget it for a couple to few hours!)
  • Simply continue to boil to taste.
  • Cool, then strain out the veggies, and toss them.
  • Keep the broth in a tightly sealed glass container in the fridge.
  • Heat broth gently and drink at least 1-2 cups a day.
