Smart Soup and Gluten-free, Low-fat Cornbread

P1110825

We received a FedEx package from Smart Soup today.  Smart Soup is a family owned business that makes healthy flash-frozen soups that are vegan, low-sodium, low-fat and American Heart Association certified.  Our family has been invited to try the soups because we have been sharing and advocating healthy meals through our blog.

There were five different flavors of soup in the package and we tried Santa Fe Corn Chowder today together with my healthy cornbread.  They were absolutely delicious together!  The hint of sweetness from the cornbread nicely complements the slight spiciness of the soup.  As I tasted the flavorful soup, I imagined that the soup would go well with many of my recipes, such as Cauliflower Mac and Cheese, Quinoa Chickpea Avocado Salad or Salmon Burger

Receiving these healthy soups gave me the idea that I should stock up the freezer with them when I am away on location.  They are made of ingredients that I can trust.  The girls can just make a salad or bread and pop a pouch of soup in the microwave.

Oh yeah, and I can stock up Angela’s freezer with the soup packages when she goes to college.  I can’t believe I just wrote that.  How is this even possible — my big-headed baby is going to college in just over a year!

  1. 这次就有点不好意思了,我通常不会选择红彤彤的汤,我比较喜欢象split pea那种浅颜色的,比如,chowder,我就喜欢New England而不是Manhattan。

    有时候人都有点小固执…

    你女儿有点象你,气质很象,好像和同龄的你相比更自信。看到你抱着Baby的时候,还是我们对“小花”的印象啊。

    我还是,更喜欢现在的你…

    我要去工作了。明天再来。也许,一会儿就又来…😄😄😄😄😄😄
