Green Soup with Detoxing Qualities

Detoxing with foods typically refers to the practice of consuming specific foods or diets with the aim of eliminating toxins or harmful substances from the body. The concept is rooted in the idea that our bodies accumulate toxins from various sources, such as environmental pollutants, processed foods, and metabolic waste, and that certain foods can help facilitate the removal of these toxins. What can we eat that will help with this process? I love this Green Soup that has many of the following essential components.
 Vegetables: which are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and dietary fiber.
 Fiber: aids in digestion and promote regular bowel movements, which can help eliminate waste and toxins from the body.
 Antioxidants: leafy greens are believed to help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, potentially reducing oxidative stress and damage.
 Herbs and Spices: incorporate herbs like cilantro and parsley, which have detoxifying properties.
