Spring cleaning for you is as important as it is for the kitchen and closets. Help your body reset in just a few days by using an easy to make brothy soup that can help you tamp down that annoying mid-body bulge.
Chef Carla Hall and Caire Co-Founder Lorrie King both enjoy using broth either as a part of a multi-day cleansing regimen or as a base for tasty and healthy soup recipes that you can build and add in based on the taste and calorie count profile you are seeking. Soup is restorative, cleansing, healthy and just mmm, mmm good.
Caire Ambassadress Chef Carla Hall says, "soup broth is one of my secrets to delicious, healthy everyday eating." Having broth every day for a few days can help:
HINT: Chef Carla prepares all of her ingredients ahead of time so that she can have soup to eat over a few days. Each day, she “layers” her soup into a bowl for the exact amount she wants to eat for that meal.
Carla also believes in keeping active by adding in a little weight & abs work - even for just 10 mins a day – this will help your body spring forward.

Shop a day ahead and prepare your vegetables in the morning. If your supermarket has organic ingredients give them a try; if the price is right for your wallet and if you want to be guaranteed a clean focused broth.
Whole Foods Market is a savior for finding KOMBU the seaweed that provides a umami flavor. Here is a photo so you can find it more easily than I was able to!
Layer in all of the veggies. I prepared this in my super large pot the first time, but figured out how to split this into 2 pots as a savior for spreading more flavor and taking full advantage of all of these yummy vegetable. What I loved was the sweetness that permeated the soup from the addition of the Japanese yam and sweet potatoes. It’s a must do ingredient. I also cooked this for much longer than the recommended 2 hours to gain more of the richness of the vegetable flavor.
