Full of Flavor, With Less Salt

Today I tried a new soup - Campbell's Chunky Healthy Request in the grilled chicken & sausage gumbo flavor. The "Healthy Request" label means it is 98% fat free and has 40% less sodium than regular Chunky soups.

Usually, the labels low sodium and fat free on soup means that it's also very bland in flavor. But this is a good one, as the goodies in the soup are so full of flavor that you don't miss the bad stuff. It's a gumbo with lots of rice, carrots, celery, and chunks of chicken and andouille sausage in a tomato base. The sausage in particular is packed with smoky, spicy flavor.

The 18.8 oz can has two servings, so with a combined total of 280 calories, 5 g of fat, and 6 g of fiber, that makes it 5 points for the whole can. Not so bad for a spicy, filling bowl of soup!
