Super Healthy Soups

How to Make a Healthy Selection


  • Why a list of soups to buy? You can make soup faster than you can open a can!!! - 10/24/2013 11:03:16 AM
  • I'm with Debbie. I thought this was recipes. - 10/24/2013 6:20:48 AM
  • Sadly for whatever reason if seems like a lot of these brands are not available where I live , Mostly there are just lipton's Campbells and some store brands. - 10/21/2013 10:04:46 PM
  • We're getting to the time of year when soups just sound so good on a chilly evening or even for lunch at work. Super comfort food too. Great article. - 10/21/2013 9:49:48 PM
  • When it starts to get cold, like this past week-end, I like to make soups. Made chili w/both kidney and navy beans and lots of chunky tomatoes. super yummy! Also made 2 pots of chicken dumpling soup. Will be eating both between lunch and dinner all week! - 10/21/2013 9:48:28 PM
  • I keep Progresso Light, Zesty Southwestern-Style Vegetable on hand for lunch as it is low on calories and carbs. Since my DH and I have Hyperglycemia we watch the carbs, and the calories take care of themselves. I do wish they would use less salt in everything canned though. People could add their own. What a concept!

  • I too prefer homemade soup, but it's not always possible. This is where reading the labels and making smart choices comes in. Unfortunately, many of the "light" soups have very little taste to them. They're watery, and not very good.
    I'd like to experiment with some homemade soups that I haven't tried to make, such as butternut squash soup. - 10/21/2013 10:38:24 AM
  • I make and can soups at home. (The ONLY safe way to home-can soups is with a pressure canner. Please don't try it unless you have access to a pressure canner.) That means I can control what goes into our diets. Most importantly, my soups have half the sodium of commercially canned soups - if not less - but they still have the full flavor.

    Even better? When my husband pulls a half-pint jar of soup out of the cupboard, he says it's like seeing a little jar of love. :) - 10/20/2013 12:02:49 PM
  • Soup is one of the easiest meals to make I don't see why anyone would want to eat canned! The only time I eat store bought soup is when I am too sick to make it myself! You also can make soup as filling as you want and it doesn't have to be full of fat to be filling. Try adding potatoes, pasta or barley and then add beans or lentils for protein!
    To make creamy without cream puree vegetables and mix in.
    mmm....I think I'm going to make some soup for dinner tonight!!! - 10/18/2013 4:12:37 PM
    I like soups but the only ones that fill me up are the creamy fattening ones. I don't feel like I am actually eating anything with soup! So unfortunately this doesn't work for only makes me hungrier! - 8/8/2013 9:53:33 AM
  • why does everything on this site have to be name brand pre packaged food, what about making one's own soups and other wonder everyone is fat and sick,just saying - 7/29/2013 8:19:53 AM
  • Before I even finished the article I knew that the comments were going to be slamming against eating canned products. I think that healthy homemade food is wonderful and I am glad that so many people can go this route all of the time. But for those of us who can't cook or are unable to for whatever reason, this is a very informative good article. Thank you for providing this type of information for those of us who can definitely benefit from it. - 7/23/2013 6:33:28 AM
  • Don't like soup that much. - 7/3/2013 9:17:00 PM
  • Silly me, I thought I was gonna see healthy soup recipes. I hate soup in a can. - 3/22/2013 6:37:34 PM
  • I have been making homemade soup for a few years now - each batch turns out slightly different, but the process is the same! Take a mixture of any veggies you have in your fridge and roast them with a bit of olive oil and seasoning. Add to a stewing pot with 2 cans of tomatoes, cook for a bit, throw in blender and done! Very healthy and great way to get your veggies each day :) - 3/12/2013 12:26:17 PM
