Smart Soup

Raise your hand if you love soup!

Raise your hand if you’ve hand a cold for three weeks and soup helps you feel better!  Honestly, is it ever going to warm up outside?  (Okay, I guess I can’t complain too much since it almost hit 70 the other day, but I’ve never seen so much cold in one winter in Texas before – and it’s not even February yet.  Brrr!)

But, soup, ah, soup.

I received some samples from Smart Soup awhile back and have been making my way through their awesome flavors.  Smart Soups are frozen gluten-free meals that are full of flavor.  They taste fresh, unlike your typical prepared soups.

Smart Soups are:

-Gluten-free
-Vegan/vegetarian
-Low sodium
-Low fat and low in cholesterol
-All-natural, with no preservatives
-American Heart Association Certified as a Heart Healthy food (Heart-Check mark)
-Good source of fiber
-Made only from REAL ingredients that you can recognize and pronounce
-Meet many special dietary requirements (e.g. celiac, diabetes) and are a healthy, convenient meal option.

The Thai Coconut Curry is packed with spicy, bold flavors with lots of chunks of vegetables and coconut.  It is definitely a real pick-me-up, wake-me-up soup.  You can see the herbs – I love that!

Smart Soup

Vietnamese Carrot Lemongrass is spicy and sweet, a curry-based soup.  Chunks of carrots, coconut, and some beans help give substance to this great mix of flavors.  It is definitely different for me, but I really like it!

Santa Fe Corn ChowderThe Santa Fe Corn Chowder is tomato-based and full of corn, black beans, and chunks of potato and red bell pepper.  It has just a hint of spice and is perfect for a cold day when you have a cold (my life in January, in a nutshell).  It certainly helped me breathe better.

The French Lentil, another tomato-based soup, was a “sharesies” with Carter.  While I was warming it up (you know, those long two minutes), he said “I bet that soup is really healthy” while reading the box.  Carter loved the chunks of carrots and red bell pepper, its “very good” flavor.  It has a slight hint of sweetness and of spice to it.  My little man said it is “easier to drink it” (my husband hates soup, so I usually make mine really thick).  I, however, am quite composed and can accurately and purposefully wield my spoon in a proper manner.  :P

If you like fresh-tasting soups without all the hassle of making it yourself, give Smart Soup a try.  And if you’ve got any connection to the north winds, please tell them to leave Texas alone.
