Secret Cucumber Detox Soup

Cucumbers are simple, nutritious and delicious… which is exactly why I love ‘em!

While each crisp bite may be delightful and refreshing for your tastebuds, what cucumbers don’t have is a reputation for being versatile. Chop them and toss them in a salad OR chop them and eat them crudite style. That was about the extent of my kitchen cucumber adventures.

Until now.

Let me introduce you to Secret Cucumber Detox Soup!

I love cucumbers and I love soup. Time to “cook!”

It’s chock full of powerful ingredients that can cleanse you from the inside out.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
