AD. I’m a busy Mum who works from home full-time. Being self-employed is something that I am incredibly proud of. However, sometimes it can be all encompassing. I have had a few bouts of illness recently and these have knocked me for six. Daisy has also had a sickness bug and generally our home life hasn’t been great. One area that I realised I was lacking was looking after my own food. I have been great at making Daisy nice meals but neglecting myself in the process. When Baxters contacted me and offered me some Baxters soup how could I say no?! I was given enough soup to see me through their 2 week souper swap challenge and this is how I got on…
To help me along the way with my challenge I received a great box of Baxters soup. There was a fantastic mix of hearty and vegetarian soups to give me a nice variety. There were 10 tins of soup and they are all below 300 calories per serving. What’s more they all contain at least 2 or 3 of your 5-a-day. This is fantastic for me as I’m not the best at eating right! Right now you can get this fantastic set of soups for just £10. This is a reduction of £3.30 on the usual price AND with the discount code SOUPERSWAP you can get free delivery too!
Lets be honest. Soup never looks amazing up close does it. However, this contains 3 of your recommended 5 a day. You can see that there is a wide variety of tasty ingredients. They haven’t scrimped on the quantity or quality of ingredients either.
I’ve found the hearty soups in particular to be a favourite of mine. While there isn’t a huge amount of meat (they are low calorie after all) the meat is flavoursome. I feel like quality ingredients are used to produce these soups. The flavour combinations work really well and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by just how nice these are. These soups are not overly sweet like others that I have tried and this is brilliant. I feel that they live up to the name ‘hearty’.
Out of the 10 flavours that I received I would say that at least 7 or 8 of them I’d love to enjoy again. There were two that I wasn’t very keen on. The sole reason for this is I don’t like sweetcorn! I’ve never liked sweetcorn and I’m not even willing to pick around it. My husband enjoyed those soups though and said the flavours were great. The souper swap challenge has been great for the two of us and I’ve really enjoyed making a conscious effort to sit down and enjoy lunch.
How have I found the Souper Swap Challenge?
I have really enjoyed the souper swap challenge. Having the soups on hand has made me stick to my challenge. If I was having to pop out especially to buy them I would probably have given up. The soups have been filling, nutritious and healthy too. I’ve felt really good for eating them, despite battling an awful virus over the last week or so.
The soups have been a great excuse for me to stop for just a few minutes downtime. It took around 4-5 minutes to heat up the soups, without boiling them. The flavours made it worth the wait and this is almost as fast as I could make a sandwich anyway. While the soup was heating up I was able to prepare lunch for my daughter Daisy and do a few quick chores. This fitted perfectly into our daily routine and I was really happy with the quality of the soups.
Overall I’ve really enjoyed this challenge and look forward to having soup for lunch again. Just maybe not every single day!
