Stupid Vegetable soups!   4 comments

Why does vegetable soup need to have chicken fat or milk in it?  Do the makers not think about the fact that people who buy vegetable soup might only want vegetables?  How annoying!  It took me 20 minutes in the grocery store just to pick out a soup.   When I finally found one with out animal, I realized it had soy bean oil. 

I know soy bean oil isn’t the biggest deal, but I’m really trying to avoid soy.  But just like corn in this country, it’s pretty hard to get away from it.

Why oh why can’t we just have a vegetable soup with just vegetables?

I finally found a soup from Select Harvest  that had no animal product but it did have some things I had to go home and research like Locus bean gum and Xanthan gum.   After my research, I decided it’s okay as much as process food can be okay.

Basically the best thing we can do is just make our food our self.  Maybe I’ll just make a whole bunch of home cooked meals from scratch and freeze them until I need them.   Because it’s rediculous the way things are.

I stopped at a grocery store to quickly pick up some soup because I didn’t want to spend 20 minutes cooking something.  But it ended up taking me 20 minutes just to find a real vegetable soup and another 7 to get home.   At the end of the day, I still had to eat locus bean and Xanthan gum.

All I wanted was vegetable soup!
