Minestrone Soup Breakdown

Chillier weather always makes me crave a warm bowl of savory soup. I don't always have time to make a big pot, so canned soups can come in handy. Minestrone is one of my favorites, and I wanted to see how all the different brands of canned soup compare.

These soups are low in calories and fat, but you've got to watch out for the sodium content. Especially since one serving is only half a can. Most people end up eating the full can — I know I do — which adds up to two servings and a considerable amount of sodium. Since the RDI of sodium is 2,300 mg a day, if you're going eat the entire can, choose a soup that has 600 mg of sodium or less.
