The Souper Swap Challenge

About a month ago I was challenged by Baxter’s to take part in their Souper Swap Challenge where the test was to swap your usual lunch for one of their heart soup’s. A week later I received an enormous box of soup’s to put to the test…

The Souper Swap Challenge Ultimate Box was the I was trialling and contained a mix of their Hearty range as well as some of their Vegetarian Options.

The next day at work, I put them to the test and kicked it off with Tuscan Style Bean, Bacon & Pecorino which tasted amazing and definitely left me feeling fuller for longer. A big tick for the hearty range already.

Next day was the turn of one of the vegetarian options in the shape of Carrot and Coriander a firm soup favourite of mine. This also tasted amazing but unlike the hearty range, did not leave me with a full feeling for as long and I found myself snacking on fruit and crisps in the afternoon.

I have to admit I found this for all the vegetarian range actually, they all taste incredible but really didn’t ward of the hunger for as long. The hearty range tastes both amazing and fills you up all afternoon; WIN, WIN!

Now here’s the golden question; did I manage to swap my lunches for soup for 2 whole working weeks?

The short answer is NO!

I actually struggled to constantly eat soup every day for lunch despite all the different and amazing flavours of them. I found that after a few days of soup, my body was crying out for some carbs and had to succumb to the call of Bread.

I know, I know naughty eh? But actually if soup works for you and you don’t mind eating it every day then what a great way to try new flavours. If like me, you would struggle then it’s still a great idea, but it might mean adding the odd sarnie in the mix to break it up a little.

I’ve loved trying these soups out and the fiancé was very jealous at the smells of some of these as they really do taste incredible. I love that a lot of the hearty range includes beans in their soup as I love the texture but did enjoy the vegetarian Spicy Tomato and Rice with Sweetcorn.

If you fancy something different for your lunch then give the Souper Swap Challenge a go!
