9 Soups That Can Make You Fat
For instance, at Applebee's, which was #7 as the Worst Potato Soup, you can get their Baked Potato Soup (Bowl)
440 calories, 31 g fat (14 g saturated), 1,270 mg sodium = not so healthy!!
Applebee’s Chicken Noodle Soup (Bowl)
160 calories, 4 g fat (1 g saturated), 1,120 mg sodium = much healthier!!
I love how you are given the option to pick a different soup at the same restaurant. We all have those days where we crave soup. I know I do! These past few weeks I have had a craving for Chicken Noodle soup. It hasn't always been my favorite, but it sure taste good on those cooler days. The only thing I really watch with my soups is the sodium content.
Out of all 9 of the soups listed the only one that is eaten the most in our family is, luckily #9. My husbands favorite kind of soup is New England Clam Chowder. I often buy the Campbell's Chunky New England Clam Chowder. It is rated as the Worse Supermarket Soup - Yikes!! The alternative is Campbell’s Healthy Request New England Clam Chowder. With 1/2 the calories and 1/2 the sodium this is what I will be buying from now on!!
Whether you are watching your weight, your blood pressure, or just your general health, take a second look at what’s in your bowl. I know I sure am after reading this list. If there is a heather alternative out there, I will be the first one to try it!!
