So… How is your New Year diet coming along? Be honest.

I’ve got a secret to share that may help give you the extra boost you need to get things moving in the right direction.

A good friend of mine is the founder of Neo Snacks, a producer of organic, paleo, vegetarian, and gluten free snack bars that happen to taste amazing.

A couple years ago she introduced me to a cleanse concept she and her husband follow on occasion when they need a reset in their health and diet. It’s a Chicken Detox Soup Cleanse from the book Perfect Weight America.

Detox Soup Cleanse

From my personal experiences, cleanses usually involve expensive herbal supplement kits from the health food store, or a whole lot of juicing.

However this cleanse is different. It’s a nourishing homemade soup with fresh chicken, loads of veggies and ginger, to boost your metabolism and immune system, as well as remove toxins to help your body to work as it should.

It is gluten free, dairy free, and paleo to boot!

Healthy Chicken Soup

Although this soup is meant to be used as a 10 day cleanse, and you will probably be ready for a change after so many days and bowls of soup, it is a completely sustainable food. In theory, you could live off of it.

With protein, vegetables, vitamins, and minerals, it provides more nutrients than most of the world’s population receives on any given day. So don’t be afraid to give it a try!

In the book, the suggested cleanse structure is to eat the soup alone for several days. It’s so low in fat and calories, you can eat as much as you want.

After 3-4 days you may introduce green salads with raw nuts in the evenings. By the end of the cleanse you still eat the Chicken Detox Soup all day, but may add salmon to your evening salad for a little extra healthy fat.

Lt. Dan and I have done the Chicken Detox Soup Cleanse several times and each time it helps us shed water-weight, a few extra “real” pounds, and sets a precedent for continued healthy eating.

Since we’ve started, several friends have also tried the Chicken Detox Soup and have had the same results.

Chicken Detox Soup Recipe

The original recipe in the book calls for all organic ingredients including a whole chicken, and several veggies that aren’t my favorite to have floating in soup.

We’ve made the soup as recommended several times, yet Dan always complains about the recipe. Over time I’ve developed my own rendition that we feel is easier to enjoy for the length of the cleanse… No picking chicken bones and skin out of the soup. No mushy veggies.

My Chicken Detox Soup follows the same principles, yet is tastier and can be made in less time. Even with the changes, it still works like a charm. Why not give it a go?

    I felt a tickle in my throat and, since it’s flu season, started taking preventative measures. This means eating a lot of soup. I’ve recently become a big advocate of knowing exactly what I’m ingesting so buying the usual Campbell’s Chicken Noodle was not an option; however, I didn’t want a recipe that required a slow-cooker as my patience was limited when sick. I came across this recipe, and boy… did I find a winner!

    I’ve made this soup twice in two weeks! I was even more excited that a large number of vegetables in this replaced noodles, so I still had a great veggie intake. Staying full was not an issue, and I noticed a little bit of weight loss too! I’m so glad I have a homemade go-to recipe when myself or anyone else around me need a soup remedy! 5/5!!!

    I made your Chicken Detox Soup today & it is very good!  It’s easy to make & I feel good about all of its ingredients.  I chose chicken broth with no salt added to cut down on the sodium & I was very pleased still.  Thank you for posting your recipe!

    This soup was great! I was nervous that the hubby wouldnt like it because of all the veggies and the fact that it’s healthy and detoxing. Lol but he loved it, and so did the brother in law who only eats meat and potatoes. they had 4 large helpings!! I added some lemon juice and lemon pepper and it made for great flavor :) It’s 3 days later and my husband is still complimenting the soup

    Sorry, I have a question? Is this soup supposed to be eaten 3 times a day??🤔🤷🏻‍♀️ I REALLY want to make it, just want to know if this is all I eat all day? 

    • Sommer Collierposted September 18, 2018 at 1:20 pm Reply

      Hi Mickey,

      In therory, yes. If you are trying to do a detox cleanse, using this soup, you eat it at every meal for several days. However, you can also just make a pot whenever you want for a light healthy meal. :)

    I hate to cook. I always have to follow a recipe because I am not one of those who know what to add. I’m trying to eat healthier cause my son has IBS, Alepicia and gets hives.  I tried a recipes the other day and it sucked. This is what usually happens when I try healthy meals. I decided to give this one a try and I LOVED it. I love how the red peepers and the apple cider vinegar add a kick to it.  This is definitely a recipe I would recommend.  My husband and son work weird hours, so I can’t wait to see what they think.  I can’t wait to try some more of your recipes thanks so much.

    Made this on Sunday! It’s really really good, it has almost like a Thai taste, I guess because of the ginger and spice. I left out the peas (because I hate peas haha) and next time I’ll be adding button mushrooms. I love that the recipe is not only SUPER easy, but also really easy to adjust. My friend is trying this with no chicken, for a veggie take! Thanks for sharing. Love love love!

    This soup was SO awesome! I added a little more crushed red pepper, but otherwise, it’s a winner!
    Thank you!

  31. Marvinposted April 12, 2018 at 9:41 am Reply

    I made the soup using the directions to a tee and it is very good. Next time I’ll add more crushed or green peppers as I love spicy food and a half teaspoon of turmeric. Thanks, Misty and Angel’s dad (My furry feline children).

    This soup is absolutely DELICIOUS.  The only tweek I made was using bone in chicken breasts with the skin on.  It wasn’t greasy and It definitely added more flavor.
