Easy Weekend Spring Liver Cleanse

Try this for three days to cleanse your liver, rid your body of heavy metals and toxins, and drop stubborn pounds fast!

Spring heralds a time of fresh clean, lighter fare. It is a welcome change from heavy winter foods higher in carbs and saturated fats. And, it’s the perfect time to give your liver a vacation, and purify your system with a detox soup that provides filling fluid to decrease appetite so you’re not tempted to overeat.

My special soup features cilantro, an herb that is known to chelate heavy metals and toxins from the body. It also includes bone broth that promotes gut and digestive health, as well as supports joint mobility, skin, hair, and nails, and better sleep. And finally, cage-free omega rich eggs, which provide an excellent source of satisfying protein and are loaded with vitamins, minerals and nutrients that the body needs for energy production.

Take your detox to the next level this weekend

Since chlorophyll-rich greens are the hallmark of the spring season, my detox soup not only acts as a perfect spring tune-up, but is sure to satisfy and nourish your body and soul. It’s one of the easiest detoxes I’ve ever created, and it works!

You can start this weekend:

Simply enjoy one cup of soup three times daily on Friday, Saturday and Sunday before meals. Then, for the next few weeks, include one cup daily to keep the cleanse going until the Summer Solstice on June 21st.

Here’s the satisfying soup recipe to cleanse your liver of toxins and heavy metals, and help you reverse winter weight gain:

Cleansing Spring Detox Soup

Makes 3 cups


  • 3 1/2 cups Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth
  • 2 fresh, cage-free eggs
  • 1/2 cup fresh, organic cilantro, chopped


  1. Place the broth in a large pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a fork.
  3. Gradually stir the beaten eggs into the broth.
  4. Reduce heat, stirring continuously with a fork until the egg stands out from the stock.
  5. Remove from heat and pour into bowls.
  6. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve immediately.

How my Spring Detox Soup works

Here’s what makes this soup recipe so effective (and satiating):

Bone broth is plentiful in minerals, collagen, and glutamine for healing the gut, plus some healthy fats to tamp down hunger. It is a very healthy source of protein, found in connective tissues, muscles, bones, tendons, blood vessels, and digestive system. Bone broth can help soothe achy bones and muscles, fight inflammation and infections, and increase energy, in addition to helping heal and seal a leaky gut.

Eggs are rich in sulfur (the detox mineral) and the amino acids methionine, cysteine, glycine, glutamine, and taurine. Your liver needs sulfur and these acids to successfully complete phase 2 of its detox process. Eggs offer the lecithin your liver needs to produce the beautiful bile your body needs to break down fat and absorb fat-soluble vitamins A, E, K, and D.

Cilantro is an incredibly versatile herb. Not only is it packed with flavor and zing, it is also packed with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium, potassium, magnesium, and folate. This tasty herb gives a simple and delicious way to tame the toxins and mobilize heavy metals in preparation to be carried out of the body, primarily from adipose (fat) tissue. Cilantro binds these harmful metals and loosens them from the tissue which helps to eliminate them from the body.

Ramp Up Your Results

After you’ve completed the initial weekend, add the following liver cleanup herbs to your regular routine to absorb poisons and help optimize your detox pathways:

Liver-Lovin Formula gives you the ideal cleansing boost! Its unique green blend keeps your liver at optimal healthy levels. It contains artichoke, chlorophyll and taurine. Artichoke is a well-known liver healer loaded with antioxidants to help move toxins through the liver’s detox pathways and boost bile production. Chlorophyll oxygenates and energizes the body and it is rich in purifying magnesium to further enhance elimination. Taurine enhances the liver’s production of bile to aid in fat digestion and absorption. Take two (2) capsules twice daily with meals.

Weight Loss Formula cleanses, strengthens and rebuilds the liver with supportive and detoxifying herbs like oregon grape root, dandelion root, milk thistle and turmeric. It also helps support balanced blood sugars and keeps cravings at bay with 400 mcg of chromium, as well as optimizes energy production with 500 mg of L-carnitine Tartrate. Take one (1) capsule three times daily with meals.

Radical Metabolizer combines five powerful ingredients to help supercharge your metabolism and curb cravings. African Mango Seed Extract has been proven in studies to promote weight loss, especially around the waistline and hips. Raspberry Ketones help increase production of adiponectin, your body’s fat-burning hormone. L-Carnitine increases your mitochondria’s ability to burn fat for energy and it is known to help detoxify the liver. Green Tea Leaf Extract is a rich source of EGCG, a natural substance that kicks your metabolism into overdrive. And Forskolin Extract aids weight loss by helping to balance your body’s leptin, the “appetite” hormone. Take one (1) capsule three times daily, before meals.

    I’m wondering if there’s a substitute for the cilantro. Not my favorite.

      You can leave it out – it’s there for its specific detox benefits vs. flavor. Parsley can have a similar effect and would be a good substitute.
