1 bay leaf
1 small bunch parsley
1 teaspoon whole peppercorns
Optional Extras: leeks (especially the green parts), fennel, tomatoes, mushrooms, mushroom stems,

Method

Roughly Chop All The Vegetables: Wash any visible dirt off the vegetables and give them a rough chop. Throw all the vegetables in a pot big enough to hold them plus a few extra inches of water.

Set the pot over medium-high heat and bring it to just under a boil. Once you start to see some bubbling around the edges of the pot and a few wisps of steam on the surface, turn the heat down to medium-low.

Cook for One Hour or So Give it a stir every now and again to circulate the vegetable. Strain and Store: Take the pot off the stove and remove all the vegetables with a slotted spoon. Set your strainer over a big bowl and line it with cheese cloth or coffee filters. Pour the stock through. Divide the stock into storage containers, cool completely, and then freeze.

Detox Tip♥♥♥: You might need to urinate more often in the first few days. This is a good sign as the body is shedding excess fluids and detoxifying

      I couldn’t agree more. Most of this foods can be found in Nigeria tho, I would look for their local names and also include some Nigeria dishes also. Thanks for the advice.
