“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!

Too much salt is bad, mm’kay? “Yes, Soupergirl, I know,” you say, reverently. But we are eating in the time of an interesting paradox — the more we learn about proper nutrition, the more we ignore! While our knowledge about food is expanding every day, so are our waistlines. This point is illustrated perfectly in Jane Brody’s article in The New York Times. Despite greater access to healthcare and information, we are experiencing a nutritional crisis, from supersized (not to be mistaken for soupersized) portions to the greater affordability of fast food to our affinity for sugar. It seems we are retreating in the face of information overload and mercurial evidence that has all the consistency of DC’s climate (bread is good! Actually, bread is very very bad! Never mind, it’s good again! But too much is REALLY bad!)

In times like these, it’s helpful to keep a shortlist of rock-solid principles to help guide you towards the right choices. Ask yourself, “Is it fresh? Is it made locally? Would Soupermom (or your grandmother) recognize the ingredients? Does it contain high levels of sodium and fat or preservatives?” Actively incorporating these questions into your shopping routine, and sticking to them, will help you lead the life you’ve learned!

Locavores of DC, unite! By now, we all know local food is better for the environment, but here are 3 reasons why buying local food benefits YOU personally:

  1. Lower taxes! According to the American Farmland Trust, “farms contribute more in taxes than they require in services, whereas most development contributes less in taxes than the cost of required services.” Last time we checked, carrots don’t pay tolls and butternut squash doesn’t dial 911.
  2. It tastes better. The crops are picked when they’re at their peak of flavor and come fleshed out with genetic diversity — producing an engaging variety in shape, color, and overall taste.
  3. It’s better for you. You may have heard that the average food travels 1,500 miles before it gets to your plate. This is true. And disturbing. The shorter the time between the farm and your table (or spoon), the more nutrients and enzymes are retained!

Haiku featured in “Serendipitous Poetry from The New York Times”

As a leftover,

the soup was equally good,

without the croutons.

Arab poet, replying to Omar Khayyam

Let Omar sing of wine and bread,

But I prefer fine soup instead.

“Soup”
by Carl Sandberg

I saw a famous man eating soup.
I say he was lifting a fat broth
Into his mouth with a spoon.
His name was in the newspapers that day
Spelled out in tall black headlines
And thousands of people were talking about him.

When I saw him,
He sat bending his head over a plate
Putting soup in his mouth with a spoon.

“Soup for Breakfast”
by Calef Brown

I like soup for breakfast.
That’s the way I am.
I’m not a fan
Of toast and jam,
Or griddlecakes
With eggs and ham,
Or even Cream of Wheat,
A bowl of cream of broccoli,
Now there’s a morning treat.
Coffee drinkers often scoff,
but I just laugh and sip my broth.
That’s the way my day starts off.
I like soup for breakfast.

 

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.

So what are you waiting for? Run, cycle, scooter, cannonball over to the nearest store that sells Soupergirl and claim yours today!!!

What’s in a label? For a lot of “organic,” “natural,” and “healthy” foods, it‘s a whole lot of bunk.

A recent article in ABC Health explores how processed foods can undergo a marketing spin and be sold as “low in fat,” “high fiber,” “natural,” and “wholesome” — but fail to meet health and nutrition standards.

Commercial and canned soups are the main culprit here — reading their nutritional labels often requires a degree in translation studies. And a good pair of bifocals. Your best bet? Stick with a whole-foods, plant-based diet! Or you can just eat Soupergirl for every meal. That’s fine with us.
