  • Summary

    A Hollywood favorite during award season among my celebrity clients, this tummy debloater is my delicious red-carpet-ready trick of the trade. The secret in this soup is the parsley, which helps flush out excess water from the body and keeps tummy bloat at bay. Plus, asparagus is rich in vitamins A, E, C, and K, and the green peas are high in protein and loaded with all types of B vitamins that may help energize you. I think of this trio of powergreens as a tasty multi-vitamin in a bowl!

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped leeks
    • 8 cups frozen green peas
    • 6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
    • 2 bunches of asparagus (30 to 40 stalks), tough ends removed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
    • Himalayan or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme (optional)
