Easy, Healthy Meals: 7 Best Canned Soups

What are your top low-fat, low-sodium options? Here, nutritionists’ healthiest picks for winter’s ultimate—and most convenient—comfort food.

140 calories; 80mg sodium; 13g protein; 14g fiber per one-package serving

The nutrition is all in the numbers here (look at those protein and fiber counts!), and this frozen soup is shockingly low in sodium, says Dr. Young. Plus, it has a pretty natural ingredients list (green split peas, carrots, onions, celery, parsley, dill, garlic, garlic powder and black pepper), and is high in vitamin A and iron. Bonus: Its packaging is BPA-free. This might just be the best soup on our list?

Upgrade: Add chunks of potato to provide a dose of vitamins C and B6, as well as copper, potassium, and dietary fiber, says Jones. Also toss in carrots (high in vitamin A) and black-eyed peas (high in zinc) for a boost.
