Best Protein Soups for Cold Weather
Soup is not just good for the soul. In mid-winter, warming soups can be good for the body. Now, they can be good for weight loss, since BariatricPal Protein Soups are here. They taste great, fit into a high-protein bariatric diet, and are quick to prepare. Here are the best protein soups for cold weather!
Fitting into Your Diet and Day
BariatricPal Protein Soups have 12 to 15 grams of protein and 80 to 100 calories. They are low in carbs, with Chicken Soup with Pasta having only 6 grams of total carbs, for example. That makes them ideal for snacks or small meals to satisfy hunger and help you reach your protein goals, especially when you are on a liquid diet and may be struggling to get enough protein.
It is easy to make these soups. Just open a single-serving packet and pour it into a mug or heat-resistant bowl. Add hot water, stir, and heat again in the microwave. Cool and serve. That’s it! No matter how busy you are, delicious protein is right at hand.
Just a few of our other delicious flavors are:

They come in boxes of 7 single-serving packets.

Your Special Twist on Protein Soups
Any BariatricPal Protein Soup can be consumed on its own, but you can make it chunkier and even higher in nutrients by adding healthy foods. For example, cooked vegetables, beans, chicken, tofu, and fish are all great options.
These are a few low-carb or high-fiber possibilities.
- Onion Soup with grilled onion rings, topped with grated Swiss cheese.
- Chicken Tortilla Soup with cooked black beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions.
- Beef Bouillon with celery, cabbage, carrots, onions, and kidney beans to make minestrone.
