Debbie's Cleansing Celery Soup is great for helping cleanse the gallbladder and reducing blood pressure. Celery is rich in vitamins C and K, as well as folate, potassium and antioxidants. This Cleansing Celery Soup is cheap, warming and ready in half an hour, what more can you ask for? We recommend adding some soy cream for extra indulgence.
