I like getting the "dried soup" packages. Right now I have the Market Classic brand, the pasta fagioli, italian wedding and southern sweet potato. These are available at World Market stores and online. I like these because they have have a "homemade" feel, when all you really need to do is add water or stock.

I hardly ever eat canned soup, though I do use it in recipes sometimes, but if I do I like plain old Campbells Tomato soup made with skim milk. I float a tiny bit of butter in it and have a cracker or two.

Not the healthiest, for sure, but very comforting, probably because it reminds me of my childhood, and, I like it. I usually only eat half at a setting.

Amy's Organics Reduced Sodium Lentil Vegetable. Soooo good. And I don't usually like lentil soup!

Happy Planet makes some nice soups. Their Indian Split Pea version has 200 calories per cup, but also 10 grams of protein. Two cups of their Moroccan Chickpea version would have 240 calories and 10 grams protein.

The soups that come in the plastic tubs in grocery stores (like Harry's brand) are really tasty, but some of them can be high in calories so check the nutrition label. But they are very very good. If you want to save money but still get a good soup, I like Progresso. Their chicken pearl pasta soup is yummy, also like the Light Chicken and Cheese Enchilada and Light Clam Chowder.

I rarely buy pre-made food from grocery stores. However, Safeway's Tuscan Tomato Bisque is very yummy. It is somewhat high in calories, but worth it.

I recently recreated the recipe at home using my own organic tomatoes and home-grown pumpkin instead of butternut squash. It was amazing.

For future reference, you can freeze homemade soups ahead. There are several soups on Spark recipes that freeze well.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Just want to chime in that there's no reason for you to feel you *should* buy an all vegetable soup. Meats provide much needed protein! I just don't want you to label that as a bad thing.

Just based on my taste, I love Progresso soups.

Read your labels, don't be afraid to try something new or different (it's just one meal afterall), and make your decision based on nutrition. High fiber and high protein will keep you fuller longer.

Pacific soups are awesome. Yesterday I was eating the thai sweet potato one, yum. They also have a really good roasted red pepper/tomato one, and a lentil one.

If you have a Costco near you, the chicken noodle soup they make in store is *to die for.* They use the rotisserie chickens that didn't sell the previous day, tons of veggies, and really noodles.

I love Amy's Kitchen Organic Soups - my favorites are Cream of Tomato, Chunky Tomato Bisque and Creamy Butternut Squash. I only get low sodium. They run about $3 per can.

I like the Progresso Healthy Classics soups when I'm too sick to bother cooking etc. They're a little high in sodium but if I watch whatever else I eat all day, really not that bad. Best part is you don't have to add water or anything-- just open the can and dump it into whatever you're using, to heat it up.

Edited to add: they're readily available just about anywhere, and they're not expensive.

Looking for suggestions for some good soup from the grocery store. I know I will probably get all veggie soup suggestions, but I am hoping for some variety.

Please do not say homemade. I don't have time today.
