Most people who are looking to cut calories and eat healthier in this new year may not have considered soup as a meal option. After all, what does soup and dieting have in common? Some may think all soup is high in sodium or full of preservatives, but thanks to The Soup Shop, soup has a healthy reputation again! Currently The Soup Shop offers over 70 different soups including six vegetarian, seven vegan and 22 gluten-free. From classics like tomato basil to hearty vegetable, they have something for every taste. “Our soups are freshly made on-site. They are full of nutritious ingredients and have no slimy soup substitutes,“ said Julie Shipley, owner and manager of The Soup Shop. Eliminate canned soup from your diet and enjoy gourmet, homemade soup full of nutritious ingredient. If you’re looking for something low in calorie, try the turkey with vegetables soup. Made with turkey breasts, broccoli, onions, celery, asparagus spears and tomatoes, this soup serves at 45 calories for every two cups, helping you slash calories without feeling hungry! If you’re looking for something gluten-free, try the navy bean with ham or split pea with ham. If you’re new to the gluten-free diet, you may not think that soup is a risk, but most of the cream based soups feature far more wheat flour than cream. If you’re looking for something low-sodium, try the creamy potato or chicken noodle. These lighter bowls cut back on the sodium and fat in many traditional soup recipes. If you’re looking for something that’s downright good, try the lobster bisque. This is one of The Soup Shop’s customer’s favorite soups. The Soup Shop is located in Melbourne, Florida and has a variety of 70 different delicious soups available for purchase ready to take home and prepare for you and your family. If you’re in a hurry, call to place your order and they will bring it out to your car – making the dinnertime rush easier for you.  If you’re looking to dine in, customers can choose from an average of eight hot soups, as well as salads and sandwiches on the patio.
