Someday I'll get around to making homemade tomato soup with no salt added, probably with Mato Zest, but for now sometimes I just open a can of low or no salt tomato soup because I'm in the mood.
Today I had Healthy Valley Organic "no salt added" tomato soup, and found it to be very tasty. It didn't have that "something's missing" flavor that some other low salt tomato soups do. Only 60 mg salt per cup of soup, which isn't bad, especially compared to the 1,000 mg of sodium in restaurant tomato soup. It does have a little bit of unsalted butter in it, which adds up to 1 g saturated fat, and of course a strict vegan would not accept any butter.
Nevertheless, among the tomato soups that I've tried, this is my favorite to date. Just wanted to share one processed food product that I actually like, and which has some nutrition to offer as well (the concentrated tomato).
The most effective health-care is self-care.
Nutrition is the prescription.
You can literally stretch your lifespan by shrinking your waistline.
Nutrition and other lifestyle factors that you can choose are a more significant determinant of your health than genetics.
Filling your stomach with high-nutrient foods is like by-pass surgery without the surgery.
We are all born with an innate desire to not only survive but thrive.
