Is Tomato Soup Healthy?
Oh how I love soup season and tomato soup is right up there as one of my home cooked favorites.
What is so hard about this time of year though is that comfort food does not always go hand in hand with healthy food.
Fortunately this soup meets the criteria of comfort and health.
Yes, tomato soup is definitely healthy.
Unfortunately are a lot of soups out there that are loaded with unhealthy ingredients. However, this tomato soup is not one of those soups. No added sugars, preservatives, or other junk to make it less healthy.
Tomato soup is not only a healthy soup option, it is just a healthy option in general.
Loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, tomato soup has so many health benefits.
Health Benefits of Tomato Soup:
- Tissue development
- Healthy bones and ligaments
- Helps keep the heart strong
- Help with prevention of cancer
- Assists with inflammation
- Help manage blood sugar levels
- Good for skin
- Source of fiber
- Typically low calorie
- Good for the nervous system
Note: Most foods, even if healthy may have a less healthy element. Although tomato soup is filled with so many healthy goodies, it can be high in sodium. So if you are keeping to a low sodium diet, you may want to be mindful of this.
I love tomato soup and all that is has to offer for health benefits.
Additionally not only do I love tomato soup, I love this particular homemade tomato soup recipe because not only is it healthy and delicious, it is also low carb. Yay! And if you haven’t had tomato soup with feta…you haven’t lived.
Can You Eat Tomato Soup On A Low Carb Diet?
I am so excited to say that not only is this tomato soup recipe so flavorful, you can eat this tomato soup on a low carb diet.
Not all tomato soups are low carb friendly, in fact many aren’t. Your typical tomato soup has a moderate amount of carbs.
So, if you are sticking to a very strict low carb diet, many tomato soups can potentially use up majority of your allotted net carbs, depending on how strict of a diet you are on.
That is what is so great about this tomato soup recipe. Even if you are on a strict low carb diet like keto, you can still eat this soup.
This tomato soup is totally keto friendly.
Also if you are counting carbs, then instead of serving soup with the traditional grilled cheese sandwich or croutons, I recommend serving it with a salad or a delicious Low Carb Ham and Cheese Muffin.
Either would make a great side to this great soup.
Is Tomato Sauce The Same As Tomato Soup?
Tomato sauce and tomato soup are not the same. So don’t make the mistake of thinking that you can sub one thing out for the other. While this is delicious, it is not a sauce for a pasta or lasagna. If you are looking for a great tomato sauce check out this spaghetti sauce.
How Is Tomato Sauce Different Than Tomato Soup:
- Sauce tends to be thicker than soup.
- Unlike sauce, soup is usually made with milk or broth.
- Usually in soup tomatoes have been pureed and with sauce chunky tomatoes are used, often in addition to pureed.
Sauce and soup are not the same. Plus if you are still not convinced that there is a difference, just try this delicious, keto friendly, homemade tomato soup.
Your taste buds will thank you for this tasty meal and you will definitely see that there is a distinct difference between sauce and soup.
What Is The Best Canned Tomato Soup?
Canned soup is not going to hold a candle to homemade. It just isn’t.
As for what is the best canned soup, that will depend on what you are looking for.
If you are looking for a “healthier” canned soup, then look for soups with less fillers and more organic ingredients.
However, the best healthy option is the soup that is made right in your very own kitchen. And often time it is almost as easy to make a homemade soup as it is to go for the canned. This soup is simple, easy to make, and very flavorful.
After you try this delicious tomato soup recipe, you will say goodbye to the sub par, processed canned soups you have been having by default.
Homemade is just so much better.
Homemade soup has better flavor, fresher ingredients, and tends to be just all around healthier as it does not require the addition of preservatives.
Plus, this tomato soup recipe is so easy that you won’t even miss the convenience and ease of canned soup.
I really think that most of the time when we choose canned soup it’s because we are looking for something that is easy to make. I don’t think we ever select canned soup on the basis that we think it is going to be better than homemade soup.
This tomato soup recipe beats any canned soup any night of the week and it is not labor intensive.
So the days of looking in the canned soup aisle because you need an easy meal are over. This tomato soup recipe will change any preconceived notions you have about homemade soup being too overwhelming to make.
With this tomato soup recipe, you can enjoy the benefits and flavor of homemade soup without sacrificing time and putting forth unwanted, labor intensive efforts.
Easy, homemade, and delicious, this tomato soup recipe is a winner of a dish.
