Woolies Soups - which is the 'healthiest' option?

My clients have all been asking me about the new range of woolies low fat soups. It is not just the packaging that has changed – most of the ingredients are slightly different as well! So today I did a mini analysis on which are the ‘healthiest’ of the range. Please keep in mind that NONE of these soups are extremely healthy as they all have additives and other non-whole food ingredients! But we all need a quick meal now and again so here is some help in making the best choice!

I have listed them in 1st , 2nd and 3rd place for each category: 

Lowest in fat:

1. Fresh Chunky Vegetable

Chunky Vegetable Soup

2. Winter Vegetable & Noodle

Winter Vegetable and Noodle Soup

3. Green split pea & Vegetable

Green split pea soup

Lowest in Carbs:

1. Fresh Chunky Vegetable

Chunky Vegetable Soup

2.Winter Vegetable & Noodle

3.Butternut

Now lets look at the bad bunch! Often the tastiest - so try and hold yourself back:)

Highest in Bad Fat (saturated fat) and Total fat:

1. Butternut

2. Fresh Chicken Noodle & Corn

2. Spanish Chorizo

3. Green split pea & Vegetable

So if you are trying to keep thin this winter the best option is The Fresh Chunky Vegetable and the worst option is probably the Spanish Chorizo!
