Healthy Tips For Buying Ready Made Soups

Buying ready-made soup is certainly convenient when you don't have the time to make a homemade pot. There are so many to choose from, so here is what you should look for. In any and all cases, consider tossing in extra vegetables (frozen work fine) to add fibre and extra nutrition.

Canned Soup:
Look for low-fat, lower-salt versions of canned soup wherever possible.
Dehydrated Soup:
These are great, because they store well in a desk drawer and also pack well for travelling. Just add water, stir and in less than 7 minutes you have soup. Be aware that some brands are very high in salt, so check the label and try salt-reduced varieties. Many are now available in low-joule varieties.

Ready-Made Stocks:
Fresh stock tends to be higher in nutrients than dried stock cubes and ready-made liquid. Be aware of the salt content, especially in stock cubes and ready-made stock; although convenient, they are packed with sodium. If you do use them, omit adding salt to the recipe, or dilute with water.
Ready-to-Eat Soups:
Look for bean, vegetable and non-cream-based soups. For a main meal, look for a heartier soup without too much salt added and bulk it out with extra vegetables.
