Eating Clean? 6 Processed Foods You Can Avoid & Easily Make at Home (Page 4)

3. Canned Soup

It sure is convenient to have canned soup on hand, but it’s high in sodium (yes, you can get lower-sodium versions, but that limits your selection). And many cans are lined with the chemical BPA, which has been linked to infertility, heart disease and diabetes. So instead of forgoing soup altogether, get out your soup pot and get cooking. Most soups freeze well, so if you like the convenience of portion control, freeze them in individual serving sizes. Don’t have the whole afternoon to spend in your kitchen? Many delicious soups can be made in 30 minutes or less.
