I was just wondering if anyone had an idea about the fat/ calorie content of deli soups. Sometimes soup from a can is not feasable at work. I was wondering if anyone had any info on the soups that you would get from the local deli. I know creamy isn't the way to go, but what about the tomato or chicken based ones?

It is going to depend so much on preparation method that you are only going to be able to get an estimate. I'd look for that variety of soup, homemade, on FitDay or another online calorie lookup site. It won't be perfect, but it will give you an average to work with.

Stay away from creamy soups. I also like to look for soups with beans (like minestrone or lentil) for the extra fiber and fullness they provide.

You might want to ask them. Sometimes they will have the info but they just don't advertise the fact.
