Cleansing Courgette Soup

Want to try a soup that can help with weight loss, cardiovascular health, regular bowel movements, and give you clearer skin? This cleansing courgette soup is so simple to make but yet very nourishing to both your taste buds and body. I often make a batch of it and freeze in portions ready for a day when I feel I have overindulged in richer foods and want to give my digestive system a rest. Courgettes are a great source of potassium, vitamin C and soluble fibre and in combination with their high water content may aid the body in eliminating toxins. Lemon juice is rich in essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, potassium, magnesium and copper, all of which support immunity, healthy blood pressure and detoxification. Lemon juice can also stimulate the release of bile in the liver and therefore help to flush out unwanted toxins and prevent constipation. Additionally, both courgettes and lemons are low-calorie nutrient dense foods which can help with healthy weight management or weight loss by supporting blood sugar management and making you feel fuller for longer.

1 onion (red or white)​​

6 medium courgettes

600 ml bone broth (I used chicken broth)

I wanted to see someone who I felt knew what they were doing!


I think Jennifer does and I really like her thorough and steady approach. For me further testing has been invaluable in getting my life back in terms of being pretty much able to eat what I want again. It has also helped me to have faith in the supplements I have taken as these are based on those results. Also she is not afraid to tell me I need to take better care of myself, which in turn has helped me to be stronger in focusing on my recovery. I am very grateful to her.
