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.
