Hey there everyone! How are you today? Did you survive the first day of the work week?
Have you ever left work on Friday thinking you have everything organized and in order and then walk in Monday morning and feel like you’re behind? Well, that was today. I walked in ahead of the game, but between emails, meetings, and just the school day in general, I felt like I spent most of my day trying to catch up.
With a really busy day and a workout after school, I knew I needed a good lunch to fuel me, but I also knew I needed a quick lunch that I can eat while still working. It was my intention to prepare something myself, but with a hectic schedule, it just wasn’t in the cards. The best laid plans….yes? Maybe it was the snow on the ground or maybe it was the rainy and gloomy day outside, but once again I craved a bowl of comforting soup. Since so far I have tried and enjoyed Amy’s Organic Lentil soup, Amy’s Hearty Organic French Country Vegetable soup, and Amy’s Hearty Organic Rustic Italian Vegetable soup, today I decided to try Amy’s Organic Low Fat Split Pea soup.
While besides homemade, I would choose this freezer find due to the significantly lower sodium content, this Amy’s soup didn’t disappoint either. For a prepared, convenience food product, the Nutrition Facts are pretty admirable. One serving (1 cup) has 100 calories, 0 grams fat, 6 grams dietary fiber, and 7 grams protein. One serving also provides 15% of your Vitamin A, 6% of your Vitamin C, 8% of your Iron, and 4% of your daily Calcium.
It contains no Trans Fat, no added MSG, no GMOs or bioengineered ingredients, no preservatives, and is certified vegan and organic. It is also gluten free, dairy free, lactose free, corn free, soy free, tree nut free, certified kosher, low fat, and it contains no cholesterol!
Need more? The ingredients are extremely healthy and natural: Filtered water, organic green split peas, organic onions, organic celery, organic carrots, sea salt, organic basil, organic garlic, 100% pure herbs and spices (no hidden ingredients), and black pepper.
This traditional American favorite made from organic split peas and vegetables had a surprisingly light and delicate flavor while still being quite satisfying!
A half of a cantaloupe acted as dessert.
Have a great night everyone!
