If you are trying to lose weight choose recipes and shop bought soups which are vegetable based such as carrot and tomato soup, mushroom soup, butternut squash soup. Calories per portion can vary hugely so it is important to check for example a portion of homemade carrot and tomato soup can contain 110 calorie and a butternut squash soup 160 calories.
If you would like the recipes just email The Diet Practice. If you decide to buy your soups check the labels for fat and salt content and go for the healthy choices such as slim a soups, reduced calorie, be good to yourself, Weight Watchers ranges etc. Alternatively look on the Covent Garden Soup website as they have details of all their soups and calories per portion. A slice of bread would make the soup more filling for lunch and add approximately 100 calories. Alternatively you can boil up a portion of rice or pasta, drain and then add the can of soup.
