Cooking & Nutrition Tips

Remember these are soup-starter mixes, you can’t go wrong! Feel free to omit any of our recommended additions and/or add any of your favorites!

  • To boost vegetables, add 1 diced bell pepper and ½ cup diced onions with soup mix.
  • To give a twist, prepare with 12 ounces cod, shrimp, or mahi-mahi instead of chicken. Add fish or seafood in the final 5 minutes of cooking time.
  • To cut fat, prepare without cheese and add sliced avocado as topping when serving.
  • To reduce sodium: use a low-sodium broth, bone broth, or stock.
  • For added protein: add a can of your favorite bean (black, chickpea, navy, etc), chicken breast, or other plant-based protein option.
  • For added nutrition: look in your fridge/garden and add any vegetables you have on hand!
