Soup is my absolute favorite go-to for one-pot cooking. Not only do you end up with a tasty, wholesome meal that’s budget-friendly, but you also get a lot of healthy nutrition.‘
Nutrient-dense meals like this Love Your Liver Beet Soup give you a huge bang for your buck when it comes to providing your body the most nutrients for the fewest calories.
Your hard-working liver also deserves a bit of extra attention.
If you’re healthy, you probably don’t even consider your powerhouse liver. It’s responsible for hundreds of tasks, processing everything you eat or drink either so your body can either use it or eliminate it.
Your body rids itself of toxins through your liver, which detoxifies your blood, produces bile to digest fat, breaks down hormones, and stores essential vitamins, minerals and iron.
It’s vital to take care of your liver beyond just your diet, because without it, you can’t survive.
