We made this a vegan recipe but if you would like to use organic chicken or beef broth or bone broth as the base instead of the vegetable stock that is perfectly fine. You could also replace the lemon juice with lime juice if you wish.
This is best with fresh squeezed lemon or limes as they have a richer array of anti-oxidants than the concentrated juices you will find in the store. Three tablespoons of the juice is typically one lemon or lime so it shouldn’t take you too long to get enough juice.
Dr Jockers Comments
This lemon detox soup tastes great and is full of life giving nutrients that help support the drainage and detox pathways of the body. This is vegan, low-carb and keto and uses clean ingredients that enhance our health and happiness!!
Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C, bioflavonoids and electrolytes which help to improve circulation, lymphatic movement, liver and kidney function. The avocados provide healthy fats and micronutrients that improve the absorption of fat soluble nutrients and help you feel satiated after consuming this.
The various herbs we used in the recipe enhance the immune system, support healthy digestion and microbiome balance and strengthen the liver, kidneys and lymphatic circulation. This is a fantastic cleansing recipe that I recommend for many of my clients and especially those who are following my Cancer Cleanse program.
