Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

Pacific Natural Foods Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Yes, I’m aware it’s summer. And yes, it was rather humid and hot today. But, yes, I still had soup!

And a delicious soup at that. Pacific Natural Foods sent me some of their soups to try, in really cool flavors like this one. Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup- how yummy does that sound! This soup is also all natural, gluten free, and organic.

So, I heated up this soup and shared some with my parents. At first, I didn’t really know what to expect- I mean, I’m not really a tomato soup girl. I was  always more of a vegetable or noodle based soup- something with something  in it to chew. But I’m glad I tried this one- it was actually quite good! 

I poured it in the bowl and noticed it looked like a nice, creamy soup. Not your typical watered down soup in a can. Then I tasted a spoonful once it was heated up- uh… YUM!! Totally not what I expected!  It had a very surprising buttery and cheesy taste to it- absolutely delicious! No overpowering tomato or red pepper taste- but just a very enjoyable and flavorful soup. My parents also enjoyed this soup, and when my dad commented that it wasn’t too salty, I was shocked to see there were 720 milligrams of sodium per serving! I would have never guessed!

Overall, this soup gets 4 1/2 stars. The flavor really rocks and I think it would be great alongside a grilled cheese or even some crackers. I was surprised I liked it as much as I did, including I never really was a tomato soup kinda girl. I reccommend this soup, and I also liked that it didn’t come in a can, but a recloseable carton that had 4 servings in it. You could heat some up, and refrigerate the unused portion, and then go back for more later!  :)
