After the overeating feast of the Christmas holidays, a ten day detox is absolutely required! I have already gone twice in the gym but I am not even come close to my goal! I decided to start a special 10 day diet with recipes that detoxify the body from the excessive sugar of the previous days. I am starting with this perfect avocado soup!

- 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and diced
- 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
