What Are Your Pricing Options?
Your long-term health and wellness are our focus at Pure Simple Wellness. We offer three different options for the Reset Program. You can subscribe for monthly delivery, which is the most cost-effective option, quarterly delivery, or a pay as you go option. Since doing the Reset Program regularly helps you to stay focused on your healthy habits, we suggest you complete the program at least quarterly for the best results. The monthly subscription option requires a minimum of 3-month commitment and the quarterly option requires a 6-month commitment (two times). After that, you can cancel at any time.
What Are the Benefits of Monthly Subscription?
As a monthly subscriber, you save a significant amount each month on your soups and support. In addition, you are a continuous member of the private Reset Facebook group with monthly ‘office hours’ where you can get answers to your specific nutrition and wellness questions. You are able to receive special orders each month and add a family member at the reduced rate at least once a quarter. You are automatically enrolled in the monthly program, no additional work is required to sign-up, and you are guaranteed enrollment. In addition, you are able to add a family member once a quarter at the same reduced monthly rate.
Where Are the Soups Prepared?
All soups are freshly prepared locally at a licensed and inspected commercial kitchen in New Jersey. We personally develop the menu, locate the ingredients, craft the soups in small batches, package the soups and deliver them to your door. We are ServSafe certified and board of health inspected.

All soups are free of top allergens: No dairy, no gluten, no soy, no corn, no white flours or sugars, no animal products, no nuts, no shellfish, no grains, no chemicals, or preservatives – Yet still full of flavor!!
Is This a ‘Cleanse’? Why Soups Instead of Juices?
This program is more of a reset, than a cleanse. Soups are provided rather than juices, as juice cleanses can leave you feeling tired and depleted, and mess with your blood sugar. The soup reset includes real foods, in nourishing soups, to support your body to reduce belly bloat, increase energy, sleep better, and reduce brain fog. This is much more than a soup cleanse as you receive expert support, guidance, and inspiration before, during, and after the program. Studies have shown, it’s useful to give your digestion a break and gently cleanse your body seasonally or a few times per year (1)
How Frequently Can I Do This Program?
You can do this program as often as you would like. Studies have shown it’s useful to give your digestion a break and gently cleanse your body at least seasonally. (2)
What If I Don’t Like One of The Soups Offered?
The soups for each month have been specially curated for the program. If you are not able to eat one of the soups on the monthly menu, please email [email protected] prior to ordering to discuss the possibility to receive 4 pints of 3 soups, instead of 3 pints of 4 types of soup. The are no alternative options each month. Only 4 soups are created each month.
What If I Don’t Eat All of the Soups During the Program?
What If I Prefer to Eat Only 3 Soups per Day?
No problem! If you prefer to eat 3 soups per day and supplement with snacks, you can extend the program to 4 days or you can freeze the remaining soups to enjoy at a later date.
What If I’m Hungry During the Program?
You are not meant to be starving or miserable during the program. The program guide contains a list of suggested snacks that can be enjoyed along with the soups. The goal is to remove the less healthful foods from your diet.
Do I Have to Eat All of the Soups?
During the program, you are encouraged to eat when you are physically hungry. If you are not hungry for all the soups, it’s okay to save them for another day. We suggest you eat or freeze the soups within 5 days. Be sure to eat enough food during the program to fuel your body for your daily activities.
