This clear, hydrating broth is a great starter course for any meal, so keep this in your repertoire even after your detox is over. Deeply cleansing and relaxing, this delicate soup keeps your body at its peak. Prep tips: You can add chile spice or cayenne to this soup to stimulate circulation and intensify your cleanse. Just a scant pinch while the soup is cooking does the trick. To make a heartier meal post-detox, add edamame, cooked brown rice, or tofu cubes.

Directions
  1. Place water and onion in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Add daikon, shiitake, cabbage, and lemon zest. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 7 minutes. Season lightly with soy sauce and simmer for 3–4 minutes more. Serve garnished with fresh parsley.
