Healthy Benefits of Eating Soup!
Soup – aah – a delicious comfort food; warm Soup to fill your belly with goodness on a chilly evening or day, or served cold on a hot summers’ day. The comfort, convenience and health attributes of Soup have made it a popular food with folks of all ages, throughout the ages. The first Soup created was likely a Broth, using bones of hunted animals, local vegetables or fish as the base. Here we are, many centuries later, re-discovering the simplicity and value of Broths, and creating Soups from local farms! We’ve come a long way since the basic Broth! Soups From Me To You not only offers tasty low sodium Bone Broth, but many delicious nourishing fresh simple and gourmet Soups, that tease your palate!
A staple of fire sides and homes for centuries, the earliest existence of Soup can be traced as far back as 20,000 BC. Before the invention of clay vessels that could be put in a fire, animal hides and watertight baskets were used, and hot stones were dropped in the pot to ‘cook’ the ingredients. You’ll be happy to know, Soups From Me To You uses more contemporary and health certified methods! We cook in a Commercially Zoned Public Health Certified Kitchen, use many ingredients that are locally sourced and contain no preservatives, additives and GMOS.
Soups have come in many different types for Centuries. The first Soup was probably a Broth, made with the protein the hunters were able to catch (meat or fish). The farmers or gathers, then discovered they could add vegetables and grain that was growing nearby, to the pot. It was easy to make, used whatever was available and filling. One can imagine the earliest Cook/ Chef, adding a new ingredient, and then tasting the results, before tweaking a good Soup recipe. A fresh Soup became a dish that was easy to digestive for all – including the young, the old, and the sick.
Soups From Me To You has simple beginnings that started three years ago. We provided a variety of Soups for School Lunches. These kids let you know quickly and loudly what they like and don’t like. The winners of their taste testing were Tomato Soup, Chicken Vegetable Soup, Simply Potato Soup, Broccoli Chowder Soup and the Southwest Chilis (low heat). All of these are still offered by Soups From Me To You, though some have a slight name change.
We have recognized that Soup can become a Gourmet treat, and not just a staple for any meal. We’ve too have been tweaking our Soups, and now offer not only the school children’s basics, but have added some more flavorful Soups to our offerings. Our Pureed Parm ‘Sparagus Soup and Creamy Carrot Thai-Coconut Soup are two of our Gourmet Soups.
