There is nothing better than a bowl of warm, hearty soup to soothe your soul and your body during these cold, fall days. With all the crazy busy times of the holidays coming up, I know it is going to only get harder and harder to make healthy, wholesome meals for your family.
So, let's talk about the options. You can go the packaged food route - yuck! Or you can go the frozen food route - better! Frozen foods can be better, depending on the quality of food and ingredients. Look carefully for artificial ingredients, loads of sodium, preservatives, and GMO ingredients.
One company that we love for their frozen soups is Nona Lim. Seriously, I LOVE these soups and the story behind the products, and the taste is divine!
Nona Lim started in the San Fransisco Bay area, and I love the heart that is put into each batch of this delicious soup. They make all their vegetable stock from scratch and never use preservatives or excess sodium.
They grabbed my heart when I read about their commitment to the best ingredients. The company sources up to ninety percent of
its fresh vegetables from local California farms (90%!!!!!!!) and one to two pounds of these
fresh veggies are cooked down into every 12 ounce pouch of Nona Lim soup. Nona
Lim also gets all its organic zucchinis from Alhambra Valley Ranch Farm just
outside of San Francisco. All of these
vegetables have been harvested only days before they hit the soup pots guaranteeing
superior flavor and texture. All Nona Lim soups are certified gluten-free,
dairy free and vegan and never contain additives or preservatives.
They won my taste buds over when I first tasted them. My family was literally saying "Yummy!" every bite they took. I honestly can't pick a favorite, but these were the varieties we tried: Red Lentil Veggie Soup, Thai Green Curry, Tomato Soup and Zucchini Soup. Each one of these was full of flavor, packed with nutrients and made my family smile.
Now, if I could only have Nona Lim as my neighbor....
You can find her soups at a Whole Foods near you or order them online. These are so good, they are going to be on my Christmas list!
