Has January been a bit of a trudge? Have you been ‘trying’ to be a little healthier after the indulgence of Christmas? I know I have been ‘attempting’ to be good but not very well…there is something grey and depressing about January that makes me want to dive head first into a bowl of chocolate, or cake, or well anything really.
Thank goodness there are some products on the market that taste great, are healthy, and they fit well into any regime…one of those is the SkinnyLicious range of soups from Glorious! Now I know that I advocate making your own soup as it is quick and easy but there are times when you just want to open the fridge and heat something up all within five minutes. So this is where Glorious! comes in…and I have to admit that having made my own supergreen soup, which was disgusting, I was slightly skeptical about whether I would like theirs, but oh my goodness it is so darn good!
You can definitely taste the greens (spinach and broccoli) but there is a delicious taste of lemongrass and kaffir lime, then a kick from the ginger and chilli that makes the flavour of this soup one you don’t want to end. And although this is skinny, it is only 144 kcal, 2.4 g fat & 0.83 g sugar per half a pot it is filling and substantial thanks to the addition of lentils and quinoa. Sadly this Vietnamese Supergreen soup isn’t gluten free though, but a lot of the Glorious! soup range are.
All of the SkinnyLicious range are under 150kcal per portion and less than 2% fat, there are six other flavours, and all are vegetarian, some are also vegan, including the Vietnamese Supergreen.
Other SkinnyLicious soups:
- Fragrant Thai Carrot (this is very tasty too),
- Cuban Creamed Corn
- Singapore Crushed Tomato
- Texan Four Bean Chilli
- Goan Tomato & Lentil
- New England Butternut Squash.
Every soup is inspired by authentic and traditional soup recipes from across the globe.
The soups are also great if you work away from home, they are easily portable and can be heated up in a microwave, as well as on the hob, so no excuse not to stay warm and on track to healthy, colourful and exciting taste bud trip around the world during your lunch break! Get SkinnyLicious and Glorious!
The soups are available from most supermarkets priced from £2.20 (although there are a lot of great deals on this month- January 2016) per 600g pot.
