If you’re planning a home detox program, a daily bowl – or three! – of this richly flavoursome and nutritious broth will help to alkalise your body.

Detox broth

Serves 2
This is very gentle on the digestive system and full of vitamins and minerals; it is also a great option when you’re sick or to keep hunger pangs at bay if you’re trying to lose weight.
175ml vegetable stock
1/4 cup bok choy
1/4 cup kale
1/2 medium-sized zucchini
1/4 cup asparagus
1 small carrot
2 tablespoons wakame
good pinch sea salt

Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, and then reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Season with sea salt. Strain the liquid and serve.
