Our Fasting Soups

The five-day FASTING BOX programme is based on Fasting Soups for every day. We use only ripe vegetables in our Fasting Soups sourced from vegetable farmers in the region that have been certified by Demeter. We often use “seconds” – vegetables that may not look as good as first-rate products but are just as tasty and nutritious.

Transition Soups

Transition Soups are creamy vegetable soups for Transition Day that are slightly richer than the Fasting Soups and are intended to prepare you for the days of actual fasting. Each box contains a tomato soup and a pumpkin soup with reduced carbohydrates for lunch and dinner.

> Varieties: Tomato & Pumpkin
> Calories: 92 kcal & 85 kcal

Fasting Soups

Our FASTING BOX is based on Fasting Soups, of which you can eat any two of your choice every day. They are mostly made of one kind of vegetable with some potato and herbs, which makes them especially easy to digest. They provide you with a light, tasty meal at lunchtime and dinner with important nutrients that support your metabolism.

> Varieties: Asparagus, Beetroot, Carrot, Parsnip, Tomato, Pumpkin, Courgette
> Calories: Between 45 & 106 kcal

Please note that the choice of vegetable and ingredients in the soups can vary depending on the season and availability.

Restart Soup

The Restart Soup is a tasty and somewhat more substantial vegetable soup to celebrate completing your five-day programme. It marks your return to eating solid foods. You can also enjoy some Apple Puree and Cashews on Restart Day.

> Varieties: Garden vegetables
> Calories: 89 kcal

Linseed Oil

Our popular oils – Linseed Oil and Lemon Oil – come from a Bioland and Demeter-certified oil mill in South Germany. It is family-run with a focus on high quality, local production and sustainability. Only the very best raw materials are used to produce fresh, high-quality, organic cold-pressed oils every day.

Both oils supply the body with the fat it needs to enter ketosis. They are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids including the essential omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. The fine lemon fragrance of the Lemon Oil lends the soups a special aroma.

“Two different linseed oils – Natural & Lemon – with lots of
polyunsaturated and omega 3 fatty acids are great for
your metabolism.”

Local, seasonal, sustainable

The contents of the FASTING BOX have been chosen to match perfectly by our head chef Hubert Hohler and are produced locally. Our Soups and Soup Essence, our Chickpea Puree (Hummus) and Apple Puree are made with a focus on seasonal, regional and sustainable production. We work with fresh raw materials that are in season grown by local farmers. Our food is free from colourings, flavourings, preservatives and other unnecessary additives.

Soup Essence

The Soup Essence is ideal as a pick-me-up or to quell any hunger pangs in-between. It is made with freshly blended organic vegetables, refined with herbs and preserved with added salt. It can also be used to season the Fasting Soups.

Chickpea Puree

Chickpea Puree (Hummus) provides some important plant proteins. You can mix it with Linseed Oil to form a homogeneous cream and add it to the soup.

Apple Puree

The Apple Puree and Cashew Nuts will be your first solid food on the last day of the FASTING BOX programme.

Herbal Essence

Our Herbal Essence harnesses the healing power of wild plants. Wild herbs have never been cultivated and are therefore particularly robust, rich in nutrients and full of flavour. Our Herbal Essence is produced using only native wild herbs without any additives. It is made by hand with great patience and dedication.

The Herbal Essence is a wonderful drink for in-between. Simply stir two to three tablespoons into roughly 200 ml water. Thanks to the apple cider vinegar it contains, the mixture has a very refreshing taste. The wild herbs calm the stomach and enhances your well-being.

“Our Herbal Essence is intended for everyday use as part of your daily routine.
The wild herbs promote digestion, leave you feeling good, and taste great too.”

Teas with Tea Strainer

Our herbal teas are stimulating and have a cleansing and diuretic effect on the body. All ingredients of the teas in the FASTING BOX are certified organic. For the sake of the environment, we have decided to use loose tea and a reusable Tea Strainer. A cup of tea has a soothing effect on any side effects of fasting you may feel such as hunger pangs or headaches.

> “Lovely night”: A light, balanced blend of herbs and flowers. With nettle, green oats, raspberry leaf, lemongrass, fennel, yarrow, coriander, lime blossom, blackberry leaf, marigold, sage, and hyssop.

> “Feel well”: A stimulating, lemony-fresh blend of maté, nettle, lemongrass, lemon verbena, orange peel, lemon myrtle, rose petal, and marigold.


When you fast, your carbohydrate intake is drastically reduced. If you find yourself feeling weak or lethargic, you may eat a small teaspoon of our Honey. Honey is a quick source of energy and tastes unbelievably good when you are fasting – a lifesaver when your energy is low!

Our honey comes from a local beekeeper with whom we have worked for many years. He is Bioland-certified and pays particular attention to ensuring that humane practices are followed and that the colonies are at a sufficient distance from fields or plantations that have been treated with pesticides.

Fasting Minerals

Fasting Minerals are recommended by our doctors and can help to maintain the body’s natural mineral balance (magnesium, calcium and natrium) and prevent cramps, for example.

“For us, eating healthily and fasting are two sides of
the same coin. We recommend choosing locally grown, organic
ingredients that are as fresh as possible, e.g. from the weekly market.”
