Revisit these SoLé Soup Classics

Revisit these SoLé Soup classics, our classic tomato, and southwestern chicken chili.

SoLé SoupS Tomato

SoLé SoupS Tomato has a dazzling tomato flavor. This SoLé SoupS classic is clean and always appealing. Vegetarian never tasted so good!

When it comes to comfort food, there is nothing that comes close to tomato soup. Sip on a steaming bowl of tomato soup garnished with some crispy croutons and herbs or paired with your own homemade grilled cheese sandwich. Tomato soup — a healthy and nutrient-rich soup can add a punch of deliciousness to your day.

Tomato soup is very high in a number of essential nutrients. For starters, this vegetable, which is technically a fruit, is rich in Lycopene. This nutrient gives tomatoes their bright red color and is a powerful antioxidant. It protects against aging, heart disease, stroke, and a host of other diseases.

The Potassium, Vitamin C, and choline content in tomatoes support good heart health. An increase in potassium along with a decrease in sodium intake has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, according to Mark Houston, M.D., M.S., an associate clinical professor of medicine at Vanderbilt Medical School.

SoLé SoupS Southwestern Chicken Chili

All-white meat Chicken, Pintos, and a host of other yummy ingredients leave this recipe poised to solve even the mightiest hunger; incredible, tangy flavor with just the perfect amount of spice & heat- just enough is more than enough.

SoLé SoupS Southwestern Chicken Chili has a touch of sliced jalapenos- an ingredient that can make even the blandest food more palatable. They can also boost metabolism: studies have shown that a compound found in peppers (Capsaicin) can induce a Thermogenic effect and cause the body to burn additional calories for up to 20 minutes post-consumption. It’s also a solid source of Protein, Fiber, Vitamin C., unique Antioxidants Lycopene and Astaxanthin.

How Fiber Can Help You

How Can Fiber Help You? In people with diabetes, fiber — particularly soluble fiber, or fiber that breaks down more easily once consumed, — can slow the absorption of sugar and help improve blood sugar levels. A healthy diet that includes insoluble fiber may also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. High-fiber foods tend to be more filling than low-fiber foods, so you’re likely to eat less and stay satisfied longer. And high-fiber foods tend to take longer to eat and to be less “energy-dense,” which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food.

If you aren’t getting enough fiber each day, you may need to boost your intake. Good choices include:

  • Whole-grain products
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Beans, peas and other legumes
  • Nuts and seeds

Refined or processed foods — such as canned fruits and vegetables, pulp-free juices, white bread and pasta, and non-whole-grain cereals — are lower in fiber. The grain-refining process removes the outer coat (bran) from the grain, which lowers its fiber content. Enriched foods have some of the B vitamins and iron added back after processing, but not the fiber.

Whole foods rather than fiber supplements are generally better. Fiber supplements — such as Metamucil, Citrucel, and FiberCon — don’t provide the variety of fibers, vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial nutrients that foods do.

Another way to get more fiber is to eat foods, such as cereal, granola bars, yogurt and ice cream, with fiber added. The added fiber usually is labeled as “inulin” or “chicory root.” Some people complain of gassiness after eating foods with added fiber.

High-fiber foods are good for your health. But adding too much fiber too quickly can promote intestinal gas, abdominal bloating and cramping. Increase fiber in your diet gradually over a few weeks. This allows the natural bacteria in your digestive system to adjust to the change.
