Review: Amy’s Organic Soups Golden Lentil Indian Dal

I have been shopping for some new soups lately and came across Amy’s Organic Soups Golden Lentil Indian Dal. I found the soup at Sprout’s Farmers Market on-sale for about $2.50 per can.

I was really surprised with how great the flavors were in this soup.

You can really taste the organic tomatoes, organic carrots, and organic red lentils and it isn’t spicy besides a little organic black pepper. I have a bit of spice sensitivity and I was just fine with this soup. The ingredients tasted rich and full of flavor. It tasted savory and I gobbled it down.

Many store-bought soups are too watery and that wasn’t my experience with this product.

I would recommend getting some Naan bread or pita bread on the side. This soup would pair well with any dish and was quite filling on its own. The soup also has no trans fat and like the rest of their line is Non-GMO as well as gluten-free, dairy-free, lactose-free, soy-free, corn-free, tree-nut free, vegan, and kosher. Their cans have non-BPA lining too.

The sodium level is 56% of your daily value or 1,360 milligrams with 2 servings or 1 can so if you’re watching your salt intake this soup may not be for you unless you’re going to balance the rest of your diet out. It is low sugar with only about 6 grams in a can.

I recommend Amy’s Organic Soups Golden Lentil Indian Dal. Great flavor and quality for the price.

Product Review: Trader Joe’s Organic Carrot Turmeric Juice Blend

Recently I’ve been frequenting Trader Joe’s more often. I wish there were more locations in Tampa especially over in Brandon, but for now South Tampa is the place to go to grab some goods. The Organic Carrot Turmeric Juice Blend inspired me to write a review because it was the first carrot juice I have enjoyed in a long time.

I have been searching for healthier juices to have at home and it is harder than you think to find a good juice at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, many local grocery stores in Tampa overcharge for organic and healthy drink choices. I saw a carrot juice for about $9 last week – which is a ton of money where I live and higher than the minimum wage here.

This juice blend at Trader Joe’s is both affordable and delicious at $3.99 for 32 oz. The spices, including an added organic black pepper, give the blend a nice aftertaste and the organic lemon juice balances the blend.

We also added this blend to an organic orange juice we had in the fridge to add some sweetness, but the juice was great even without it.

Here is the nutritional information for this product:

Carrot Juice is also great for Vitamin A, antioxidants, maintaining cholesterol and blood sugar, among other things. Turmeric is known to have plenty of benefits.

I recommend this product!
