When do I sign up for the cleanse and when do I receive my soups?

Order your "cleanse" on  At the very top of the homepage it will tell you when the next delivery is.  Once you've received your soups you can begin your cleanse whenever you’d like. The soups will last at least two weeks in the refrigerator, so begin your cleanse when it works best for you.  After you place your order, if you would like to schedule your "Cleanse" for a future week, you can do so by emailing us at and letting us know!  We just need advance notice of 72 hours to accommodate changes.

Where are the soups made?

The soups are made at our location in Takoma, DC. Come visit our store anytime for more soup and salad when you've completed your "cleanse"!

Where should I store my soups before I eat them?

The soups are perishable and require refrigeration. When you are ready to eat your soup, simply put it in the microwave for two minutes in a mug or bowl, or heat it in a pot on the stove.

Do the soups contain meat or cream?

Our soups are 100% plant based and certified kosher. They contain no meat, fish, egg, or dairy products.

What if I have an allergy?

The "cleanse" is specifically designed each week for optimal health and nutrition.  We can make substitutions for the following allergans:  gluten, soy, nuts and cilantro.  Once you have purchased your "cleanse", then please email us at and confirm which of these allergans you would like to avoid and we’ll make the necessary substitutions.  Note - this may result in a few soups being repeated in the cleanse.  If you have a different allergy (other then gluten, soy, nuts and cilantro), please let us know.  We will try our best, but can't guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your specific request.

What about caffeine and alcohol?

Yes! Life is short - have some wine! We recommend black coffee or green tea for your caffeine fix. Try to avoid any sweeteners. If you need to, add a splash of almond or soy milk in your coffee. Feel free to enjoy a glass of wine during your "on" days. Have a bit more during your "off" days. We do not recommend drinking hard alcohol during the "Cleanse" because of its high sugar content.

The soup containers are #5 plastics which can be recycled in Maryland and Virginia, but not in DC.

Just drop them off at your are Whole Foods if you shop there. Unfortunately we cannot accept used soup containers at Soupergirl because of health code restrictions.
