Hearty Detoxifying Vegetable & Thai Meatball Soup

This hearty detoxifying soup contains the cruciferous vegetables, broccoli and cauliflower, which have potent anti-estrogenic properties. Dulse is rich in iodine, an essential mineral for brain and breast health in women, but avoid it, however, if you have Hashimoto’s disease.
