This came unattributed though my Facebook feed. Sounds like a good recipe to keep on hand, ready for the random "I'm hungry!!" cries from my Lambies! 
"Fat Flush Soup" 
2 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1" cubes
6 carrots, peeled and sliced
2 stalk celery, diced
2 small yellow onion, diced
2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt, more or less to taste
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoon paprika
2 bay leaves
4 (15 ounce) cans kidney or navy beans, drained and rinsed (optional, leave out for Primal option)
8 cups vegetable broth, low-sodium
1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes 
8 cups baby spinach, loosely packed
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, optional, for serving (1 1/2 teaspoon per serving)
Add all ingredients, except spinach and olive oil, to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, or until the vegetables are tender. Add spinach, stir and continue cooking just until wilted, approximately 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Tip: If you prefer a thicker soup, after 5 hours of cooking, simply remove 2 cups of soup, along with ingredients, mash ingredients with a fork, return to the slow cooker, stir and continue cooking 1 to 3 hours. When serving, drizzle a little (optional) olive oil over each bowl of soup.
Note: Olive oil helps the body absorb nutrients more efficiently and supports a healthy digestive system.
