Why you should make your own soup

Now a point from the Big Souper. At only £1.25 for 600g of soup from Sainsbury New convent garden soup these days why should I make my own Soup you ask? I also looked at a Waitrose own a low fat soup at, its £1.50 for 350ml  of a cauliflower and celery soup.

Well I wonder if you have ever heard of a Radish Soup from the New Convent Garden Soup Company. No you haven’t is the answer. Also at over 942 calories for 600ml of the Vegetable Soup and containing 31g of the not to good stuff is as follows:

  • Fat (6.6g)
  • Saturates (3.8g)
  • Sugars (18g)
  • Salt (2.6g)

The Waitrose low fat soup for an equivalent 600g is over 585 calories and contains an equivalent 18g of the not to good stuff is as follows:

  • Fat (5.5g)
  • Saturates (2g)
  • Sugars (7.5g)
  • Salt (3g)

So I think the problem is pre-prepared food. Whereas if you make your own soup its between 1 and 1.2 litres of soup (up to double the amount bought) with fewer calories and a fraction of the not so so good stuff.

So take the time and if you make it yourself, from natural products, it will be way, way better for you.
