When the weather is cold there is nothing better than having a delicious warming soup, even better if it’s healthy! Some people assume all soups are healthy but actually not really. Many of the supermarket-bought soups are loaded with salt and sugar. Do you ever check labels when buying a soup? You should avoid buying soups with red labels and the more green labels the better!
I don’t normally buy soups in supermarkets as I don’t find them very healthy. Also, it’s really difficult to please me since I don’t eat meat and I don’t like spicy food. But when I discovered the Soupologie brand, my opinion about soups from supermarkets changed. I bought their first soup from Asda and it tasted delicious (it was kale & spinach, for your information). I was actually surprised at how good it was considering that it was really healthy.
After trying Soupologie’s first soup I decided I wanted to try more and these are the soups I decided to go for:
- Pea and Leek soup
- Watercress Courgette & Quinoa soup
- Ancient Grains soup
- Three Mushroom broth (rich in vitamin D)
I must say Soupologie’s soups are so delicious! Some of them are blended, like Pea and Leek soup while others are left unblended such as their Ancient Grains soup.
All the Soupologie soups are gluten-free and dairy-free which makes them suitable for vegans. They are also vegan certified if that’s important to you. What’s more, they don’t add any sugar and additives to their soups. This is what I really like about them. Also to mention, their pots are BPA-free and the ingredients they use are not genetically modified. What else could you want from a healthy soup?
Soupologie Watercress Courgette & Quinoa soup
Watercress Courgette & Quinoa soup has a lovely flavour and tastes delicious. I loved it! This source is a great source of fibre and contains 3.2g protein per 300g serving. Not that much but at least it has some protein.
Soupologie Pea and Leek Soup
I don’t like peas and I never eat them but in this soup I actually quite enjoyed them. A combination of pea and leak is great and you have an added benefit of protein from peas.
Soupologie Ancient Grains Soup (amaranth, flaxseed & millet)
This is probably my favourite soup from Soupologie. It reminds me of something that I would make at home. It’s hearty and filling and makes a great lunch (it contains beans as well).
Soupologie Three Mushroom Broth
Mushroom broth from Soupologie is my least favourite ‘soup’ out of the ones I tried, although it’s really good for you as it contains a good dose of vitamin D which is naturally found in mushrooms. This soup is great for winter as this is the time when we don’t get enough vitamin D and are advised to supplement. If vitamin D is your concern I recommend you try it but be prepared, it’s not really a soup, it’s more like a watery broth. I would personally like some mushrooms to be swimming in that liquid…
All in all, I think Soupologie are a great brand and I would highly recommend their soups. These are great for when you don’t have time to make your own soups and you want something healthy for lunch. If you want to buy them, check your local Asda or Waitrose first but if you cannot find them there you can buy them online through Ocado or Planet Organic (If you would like to get a discount on your online shopping, don’t forget to check VoucherBin.co.uk for offers and great deals).
