As a lot of folks are heading back to school soon, I thought now would be an appropriate time to try a few soups and give my thoughts. After all, whether you're a busy college kid or a time-strapped professional, tasty and healthy vending machine/fast food alternatives are always useful. So I headed to the Shaw's Supermarket across the street from my hotel and picked up a few cans to try.
After picking my mom and sister up from the airport, we headed to the Embassy Suites (the Doubletree was fine, but the Embassy Suites is *way* nicer in pretty much every way) and nuked our three cans in the microwave for about two minutes each.

They were all really tasty, but I settled on the light in sodium lentil vegetable, because I loved the contrast between the lentils, potatoes, chopped carrots, and soft - but not too soft - green beans. I'll definitely have this again! And you really don't miss the salt, the flavors of the yummy veggies are enough!
My mom had the plain organic lentil soup and it got a really big smile and this compliment: 'It tastes just like Eintopf!' Seeing as lentil Eintopf is one of her favorite foods, that's a big compliment.
All in all, we enjoyed the organic soups!
Ooh, and my fruit (sniped from the buffet) was good, too!
Are you a soup person? What about lentils?
