When’s the last time you got excited, really excited, about soup? Unless you’re a soup fanatic like me, your answer could lie somewhere between, “Been awhile” or “You’re kidding, right?” This health food review – a review of Dr. McDougall’s Soups – is for all of us, soup addicts and soup newbies, alike. Those of us who eat soup pretty much on a daily basis have a deliciously healthy new soup to enjoy and those who don’t eat soup regularly are about to gain a new incentive to do so.
This health food and soup loving junkie had reason to do a happy dance across the kitchen floor about a month ago. I was sent a box filled with Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods ready to serve soups. In fact, I had one last night for supper, the delicious Ready To Serve Black Bean Soup – Gluten Free. I heated the soup and served, filled our bowls, then topped it off with a little sour cream and chopped cilantro.
I built the entire meal around this healthy, hearty, and delicious soup. Make no mistake about it, it was the star of the show. Each soup I’ve tried has been exceptional and each time I’m left thinking, “This tastes like soup you’d get in a restaurant, not one that’s waiting for you in your pantry.” They’re that outstanding. Even better, they’re incredibly healthy. A bowl of one of Dr. McDougall’s soups, along with a tossed salad or bowl of cottage cheese and fruit is a beautifully healthy, filling, and delicious lunch.
Can you even imagine how much better this meal would be for you than a burger and fries?!?!
Not only is it the right way to eat for you and me… it’s the right way to feed our families. If healthy food tastes good, kids (and husbands!) will eat it. End of story. Our mission, if we choose to accept it, and we do, is to find the healthy foods that have as much taste going on for them as they do nutritional value.
That’s why I”m so excited about these soups, they have it all going on. I even love that they don’t come in cans!
Prevention Magazine had this to say about the Black Bean Soup: “This hearty blend of black beans, vegetables and organic brown rice kept testers full for hours. There’s just the right amount of spice and cilantro adds great flavors” and Better Homes and Gardens called the vegetable soup “…one of the best store-bought vegetable soups we tasted.” If it was just “one of,” I’m dying to know what the others were!

Making good, healthy choices today (again, for ourselves as well as the people we love to distraction) means healthier tomorrows. One day last week I found myself having what I thought was a “burger craving.” I even considered running to the nearest drive through and ordering the biggest burger they had. Instead, I walked to my pantry, and invited Dr. McDougall’s Organic Tortilla Style Soup to lunch. I ate my bowl of DELICIOUS soup with with a green onion, a glass of iced green tea, and a smile.
That’s pretty much what better health is: Making one really good decision after the other. Many times what we think is a craving for something unhealthy is a craving for something hearty and filling.

Unfortunately, none of the stores near me carry Dr. McDougall’s products, but that’s not really such a problem. I happen to LOVE shopping online and all of these healthy and fantastic soups are just a click away. Not only can you buy cases of these great soups online, you can buy his other equally great food products. I’m anxious to try the Asian Entrees.
