This is the time of year when soup can be a blessing. It is so warm and comforting. It’s easy to make, and it can taste delicious. You can add extra protein to soup easily with ingredients such as BariatricPal Protein Bouillon and Broth, which come in a variety of flavors. Here are some tips for adding extra protein to your soup.

Using BariatricPal Protein Bouillon and Broth

BariatricPal Protein Bouillon and Broth can give you a base that is protein-rich. Each serving has 12 to 15 grams of protein, or the amount in about 2 ounces of chicken. It is always perfectly seasoned so you can depend on great-tasting results as you get your fill of protein.

These are some of the available flavors of BariatricPal Protein Bouillon and Broth.

You can use them in your regular soup recipes instead of broth or bouillon. These are some ideas for soups that you can make with BariatricPal Protein Bouillon and Broth.

  • Chicken soup with celery, carrots, and onions.
  • Cabbage soup with ground turkey, tomatoes, onions, and celery.
  • Meatball soup with ground turkey and canned tomatoes, and topped with Parmesan cheese.
  • Asian-inspired soup with fish, tofu, or shrimp, bok choy, ginger, lemon grass, and mushrooms.
  • Pork, chicken, or turkey sausage with greens and edamame.
  • Tex Mex-inspired soup with ground turkey, black beans, cumin, oregano, and chili powder, and topped with sour cream, shredded lettuce, and cheese.

The possibilities are endless. Just add your favorite ingredients, and know that you can get protein and nutrients in a filling, easy soup. To make BariatricPal Protein Bouillon and Broth, all you have to do is dissolve a packet in boiling water. Each packet serves one, so you can use multiple packets if you want to make a big batch of soup.

Creamy High-Protein Soup

BariatricPal Protein Soups also come in creamy flavors, such as Cream of Broccoli, Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Chicken, and Cream of Vegetable. They may sound and taste decadent, but these creamy soups are high in protein and low in calories compared to regular cream soups. To make them chunkier but keep them low in carbs, you can add items such as chopped broccoli,  mushrooms, chicken, and any type of vegetables, including ready-to-use frozen vegetables.

Adding Other Protein Sources

You can also put additional sources of protein into your delicious soup recipes. Leftover (or freshly made) cooked chicken, ground turkey, soy protein, fish, shrimp, and tofu are a few ideas. Beans and lentils also add protein, not to mention fiber. You can also get creative with sources such as Protein Pasta for chicken noodle, minestrone, and other soups with pasta in them.

It’s easy to add protein to your favorite soup. One way is to add protein foods such as chicken, fish, beans, ground turkey, or tofu. Another strategy is to use BariatricPal Protein Bouillon and Broth as a base. That way, your soup is sure to taste good and have a good dose of protein in every serving. It’s a good way to make nutritious, hearty meals for weight loss!
