Inflammation and Acidity

Many of our customers ask us why we tout the anti-inflammatory benefits of the ingredients in our soups.  We want to take the time here to explain why anti-inflammatory foods are so important and the role of inflammation and acidity in our health. As we explain in our book, The Soup Cleanse, one of the…

The Case for Cooking

Soup is Sexy!

 ALL TOGETHER NOW –  “SOUP IS SEXY!” What is sexy? To us, it’s glowing skin, confidence, energy, vitality, a body that’s lean and efficient, a mind that’s clear and sharp, and a spirit that’s in love with life.

Nourishing ZZZZS

By:  Co-Founder & Co-Owner, Vivienne Vella WHY:  Even though it’s food that’s at the center of our cleanses, your body needs nourishment other than what you’re eating. That’s where sleeping comes in.  Sleep—or rather, quality sleep—is the difference between feeling run-down and depleted and vibrant and alive.  Sleeping helps your systems function at their strongest, namely by allowing our parasympathetic nervous system to…

Soupure’s Top 10 Snack Picks

Why is it that whenever we have the munchies, we head straight to the pantry or vending machine for chips, cookies, and other processed finger foods?  We think this is because these foods are readily available and satisfy our immediate cravings for comfort, salt, and/or sweets. Make a commitment to skipping that vending machine and…

Some of our customers at Soupure ask us if any of our soups contain soy. They say they want to avoid consuming any soy products.

I am a Vegetarian . . . Sort of

Because we are a business that caters to many vegans and vegetarians, I am always asked if I am one or the other. The truth is that I am a vegetarian ….. sort of. Because this answer seems so non-committal, I usually simply reply “it is complicated.” I don’t mean to sound so dismissive –…
