Every year, after the big food holidays, Dave and I feel sluggish, and headachy… and fat. In fact, we have gained at least five pounds of holiday cheer. I hate it when nothing fits and I feel tired and cranky. Too many goodies of all the wrong kinds do that and more. In only a few weeks of overindulging too. Too much Pumpkin pie love here.

Time to detox with healthy, high-fiber foods, like soups! Detox Lentil Soup is full of nutrients, and light of calories! Time to drink lots of water and rev up the metabolism so we can expunge the bad stuff stuck in our guts, and give the body a rest.

Detox Red lentil Soup

Detox red lentil soup is a good soup anytime. Right now when we are clearing out the junk, it’s almost medicinal in its benefits for our bodies. The fiber in this soup will help clear out a digestive tract clogged with unhealthiness. It’s full of great nutrients too.

We work on the 80-20 plan. Now healthy food and lifestyle is the 80 percent of our diet. Last week it was severely shy of the 20 percent. Winter gloom and rain is hard to get through around here. Going outside is yucky. Sitting in the nice comfy warm house and eating homemade cinnamon rolls seems like a really good idea.

Healthy soups are a good addition to the diet. Lentils are amazingly good for you. So are the other ingredients in this lovely recipe. This is a high carb soup full of sustaining nutrients your body will love.
