Okay. Drop. Everything.
I just saw this picture from Pinch of yum and I absolutely want to make this Coconut Curry Soup. Like, I want to leave work and make it. Right meow. Unfortunately, I’m Cleansing, which means I can’t cook or heat everything, which, on day four, is becoming something of a drag. I wish for the warming goodness of autumn stews.
The thing about the 20 Day Full Body Cleanse, though, is it’s not supposed to be easy. If it was easy, we’d eat raw fruits and vegetables all the time and we’d all look 15 years younger. The Full Body Cleanse is hard because eating healthy is hard, especially these days with so many sodium-laden, saturated fat concoctions to tempt us. This recipe, need to tempt you. This recipe is pure mouthgasm.
After you cook it, take a slurp for me and for all of us in the Dherbs Nations who are Cleansing right now. Oh! And if you do make this recipe, be sure to share it on your instagram and tag us @dherbs.
