New Nutrition Tips:

  • To boost vegetables, add 1 cup diced leeks and/or 1 diced sweet potato with carrots.
  • To give a Mediterranean twist, add 1/4 cup unsalted, no added sugar, creamy cashew butter or peanut butter with soup mix.
  • To cut saturated fat, substitute lite coconut milk for coconut milk, or omit coconut milk for a simple pureed soup.
  • To cut sodium, prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
