This past week, Soupergirl introduced the Soupergirl Non-Cleanse Soup “Cleanse” — a healthy way to lose weight and guide your body into healthy eating habits. There’s a million different diets and weight loss strategies out there — what separates our “cleanse” from the pack? A few things:

  1. Say goodbye to hunger pangs and bad cravings. The goal of the Soupergirl Non-Cleanse Soup “Cleanse” is not to starve the weight away — that only leads to the weight coming back after the diet is over. The goal is to nourish your body with fresh vegetables, lSouperCleanse-1-49egumes, and wholesome grains. Watch as the weight falls away, you feel fuller and more energized, and your skin gives off that healthy glow!
  2. Make lasting changes to your diet and health. The Soupergirl Non-Cleanse Soup “Cleanse” trains your palate to be accustomed to healthy, real food; processed foods will begin to taste unnatural and will be the last thing you crave!
  3. We take the pyramid approach to calories. Our “cleanse” team has developed a special menu for your 4-day program. The model is “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.” We start your days with hearty, energizing soups then gradually progress to the lighter soups, so your body is burning maximum calories!
  4. You’ll still love what you’re eating. Your “cleanse” package includes a diverse, flavorful array of soups — with recipes like Barley Sweet Potato & Greens, Triple Ginger Butternut Squash, Split Pea Rosemary, and Winter Root Vegetable Chili (these are just examples — the menu changes every week so you can keep “cleansing!”), you’re sure to discover something new and enjoy every spoonful!
  5. It’s easy! The soups come in 16-oz, ready-made containers — all cooked locally at our kitchen in Takoma. All you do is throw it on the stove or zap it in the microwave. Healthy has never been easier.
  6. Stay warm! It’s cold out there. What is more comforting and warming than a bowl of soup?? Soup is like a hug from your mom. Or Soupermom.

“Each soup was more delicious than the one before. I loved the ease of having the soup ready and knowing each was going to be a treat.”

“I found them to be not only delicious, but also really filling and satisfying. It didn’t hurt that I didn’t have any preparation to do…I’ve now lost over 160 pounds — in less than a year and a half — and I feel fantastic.”

“Over 50 pounds later and insulin free, I am a committed Soupergirl devotee!”

If you are ready to:

  • lose weight
  • gain energy
  • embrace healthier eating habits
  • rid your body of processed food, salt, and fat

The Soupergirl Non-Cleanse Soup “Cleanse” is for you.

Why are we calling it a Non-Cleanse Soup “Cleanse?” We’re not doing any sort of “detox” of your body. Your liver is in charge of that. We’re not drastically restricting your food intake. You won’t feel tired or sluggish. We are cleaning up your dietary habits. We’re kicking out the processed foods, the sugar, the excess fat and empty calories. We’re replacing them with clean, wholesome, real food. Click here to get started!

Four Days. Four Soups a day. Sixteen total soups. The first steps towards a total overhaul of your approach to eating. The soups are so delicious and filling, you’ll hardly notice you’re “cleansing.”

We don’t believe in fad diets, detoxes, or temporary fixes. We do believe in permanent changes to help you get on track to living a healthy life. A non-cleanse soup “cleanse” will:

  • Change your palate. After four days of eating clean, plant-based, healthy Soupergirl soup, you’ll begin to crave clean food, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes over salt, fat, and sugar (processed foods!).
  • Make you feel energized and satiated. The daily soup cleanse menu is full of naturally occurring fiber, protein, along with vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. Say goodbye to sugar spikes and crashes, afternoon fatigue, and pangs of hunger. The soup “cleanse” will keep you satisfied throughout the day.
  • Leave you lighter! The Soupergirl soup cleanse is not a crash diet. On a typical cleanse day, you’ll get over 40 grams of fiber and 30 grams of protein by consuming just 1,200 to 1,500 calories. This type of clean eating will leave your jeans fitting a little looser at the end of the cleanse. You’ll be on your way towards making permanent food changes that will keep you eating healthfully all the time!

The best part? It is so easy! The soups come pre-packaged in single serving containers. Take them with you to work, heat them up when you are ready to eat, and you’re on your way! No need to think about what you’ll be eating for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! You’re set for four straight days!

How does the Soupergirl Non-Cleanse Soup “Cleanse” work?

Our team has crafted you a unique daily menu, engineered for nutritional absorption and energy production. After four days, you’ll be on the road to making healthy, lasting diet changes.We provide a program that lists the soups for each day, along with our numbered suggestions for serving order. The model is “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.” This pyramid approach to calorie intake is the best path to achieving full health benefits and sustained energy throughout the day.

Why Soupergirl?

Let’s face it: we live in a sorry state of soup. The salt content of commercial soups averages around 800 mg per cup. And don’t even get me started on the preservatives and additives (MSGs and Xanthan and Guar gum, oh my!). Soupergirl soup is homemade. You will recognize every ingredient on the labels. Our soups arelow in salt but high in flavor. They are 100% plant-based. The ingredients are fresh, local, and seasonal.

Get started today!

squash_pilgrimHow is it November already? It was 80 degrees last Friday and 50 on Sunday… but the calendar says Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away. We’re here to remind you that you can indeed pick up lots of holiday fixings at Soupergirl. Of course we’ll have our Maple Syrup Roasted Butternut Squash soup on our online delivery menu the week of the holiday. We’ll also have a number of other pumpkin-themed soups and salads at the shops. We’ll deliver delicious holiday soups to various stores around town as well. But what we’re really most excited about is that we have an excuse to post a picture of a butternut squash dressed as a pilgrim. We look forward to November all year long. If we posted this picture in July, it certainly wouldn’t be seasonal, now would it??

MatzoBallFall means it is time for the Jewish New Year which means Matzo Ball soup is back on the menu!! We’re offering it to our online delivery customers this week only. It will also be delivered to area Whole Foods on Thursday and Friday. We’re making the Soupergirl holiday special this week only, so stop by our shop or at an area store, or order online. Remember – this is a 100% plant based matzo ball recipe – no chicken soup or egg. But extraordinarily delicious!

It may be September, but here in DC it’s still hot as ever.IMG_3255 (1) How do you cool down in this swampy heat? Let’s see… There’s sugary lemonade and snowcones… Soda is out… What if there was a healthier summer beverage that still tastes delicious??

Enjoy our Beet Gazpacho before it goes out of season!! Splashed with beet and a touch of jalapeno, this one-of-a-kind summer treat won’t be on the shelves for much longer! And there’s more than just the amazing taste — this gazpacho is ridiculously healthy!! Check it out:

  • Beets! The nitric oxide boosts blood flow and provides a great source of natural energy.
  • Tomatoes! Also pronounced tomahtoes. A fantastic way to load up on antioxidants.
  • Olive oil and lemon juice: the “nutritional synergy” (fancy, huh?) that occurs when you combine these ingredients makes gazpacho one of the most popular foods for those trying to lose weight.
