How about the lite shakes. I use them quite frequently instead of one of my lites. I like the chocolate and vanilla. I have not tried the strawberry. Often I add a serving of yogurt to the vanilla shake with water and also add strawberries and I knock off a lite, fruit and dairy at one time. Very filling for an afternoon snack or any other time.
Regarding the soups - there are some recipes in the cookbook that feature the soups.
