What is the Reset?
The “Reset” is as it sounds, a full day of resetting with five light soups. You will eat a soup for every meal of your day. This is a soup detox, but each of the soups have plenty of texture and are designed to make you feel full. You shouldn't feel hungry during the reset day, and the soups are delicious (Butternut Turmeric, Cauliflower Potato Chowder, Fennel Consomme, Parsnip Apple Puree, and Pumpkin Pear Bisque).
You can do the reset once a week, once a month, or as needed.
Do the Meals Taste Good?
So delicious. You're probably not going to love every single flavor, but you can customize and easily mark to avoid any smoothie or bowl you don't like. Splendid Spoon also has new and seasonal options that come out every few months.
Common ingredients you'll find in many smoothies are pea protein, nut butters, spices, flax or chia seeds, and cocao. Common ingredients found in the bowls are quinoa, lentils, potatoes, sweet potatoes, chickpeas, ginger, spices, butternut squash, beans, greens, nuts, seeds, and coconut milk.

Each Splendid Spoon smoothie and bowl is 2 servings. It is recommended to enjoy the full two servings as a meal or one serving (half the bottle/bowl) as a snack.
Many people stretch out their Splendid Spoon meals as well by adding grains or extra to their meals and splitting each bowl into two meals that way. For example, you can split the Beans and Greens into two lunches by serving it over some brown rice and topping with avocado.

Is Splendid Spoon Filling?
Absolutely. A smoothie for breakfast and bowl for lunch keeps you satisfied, full, and energized until dinner. If you are not finding your meals filling, you can add grains, beans, healthy fats, or additional veggies to them.
