I like to boost the nutritional value of canned soups by adding extra veggies & meat. For example, Progresso's Italian wedding soup - yummy but not quite filling enough! Add 1 cup each sliced carrots and celery, along with diced frozen turkey meatballs, & microwave. Gives you 2 hefty servings!
Each serving is less than 300 calories. If you want to cut sodium, just buy low-sodium soup. You can also add a bit of fresh spinach or whatever other greens you have about. When you get soup on sale, this is a big moneysaver too...41
At the start of the week make a veggie soup...because the main ingredients is vegetables, you can put as many as you want in it so it will fill you up on your dinners. If you make a tomato based soup, if you get bored half way through the week, there is nothing stopping you from adding a bit of cream/natural yogurt...still there won't be many calories and will be filing.
