Soupelina’s Soup Cleanse: Plant-Based Soups and Broths to Heal Your Body, Calm Your Mind, and Transform Your Life

We rated this book:


Once upon a time, Elina Fuhrman was diagnosed with breast cancer. During the course of her treatment, she discovered the healing power of food—specifically that of soup. Her intensely nutritious, plant-based soups eventually got some attention, and she eventually created a business to make them more accessible. Now, her new book Soupelina’s Soup Cleanse gives readers the information they need to make their own health-boosting soups. While the book is technically formatted to assist readers in performing their own “soup cleanse,” these flavorful and cleverly-named recipes will appeal to anyone looking to get more vegetables in their diet. Fuhrman offers recipes for blended soups, such as “I Yam Who I Yam” and “I Gotcha Kabocha Covered;” chunky soups, like “Lentil Me Entertain You;” broths, like “Pho Sho” or “Magic Turmeric Broth;” and even raw soups, such as “A-Lotta Avocado.” Fuhrman uses ingredients both common and unusual, although all can be easily sourced at either health food stores or ethnic markets. These recipes are simple and easy to follow, and flexible enough that readers are certain to get amazing results.

    I found this book to be packed full of nutritional information, easy to understand and a wonderful resource. I went from being a basic soup cook to elevating my soup game dramatically! I love that all the soups are vegan (even though I am not) because NO ONE can tell!!! I tried the 3 day cleanse and felt energized, alert and enthusiastic…never hungry. I use this book as a reference, as there is so much information about the different properties each vegetable and herb has and how they will contribute to your overall well being.
