Super Green Kale Soup

Your liver will love you!

As a holistic nutritionist, I’m lucky that vegetables are my favourite food! Kale is an easy go-to for a last-minute soup or salad, or how about a green smoothie?  This is the month when I really focus on my liver and eat a lot of greens, my fridge is overflowing with vegetables and my liver is happy too. 

I also support my liver with this excellent product that nourishes and supports healthy liver function.  Here’s the link have a look! 

I make several versions of this soup and often add a few extra vegetables to jazz it up. Enjoy!
