Nothing makes a house seem more like a home than delicious aromas coming from the kitchen. And nothing will bring family members to the dinner table more quickly.
For many busy families, dinner, not breakfast, has become the most important meal of the day. With the fast pace of life, time spent together at the table, or cooking in the kitchen, may be the only opportunity for married couples or parents and children to spend time with one another.
The problem is, with everyone so busy, who has time to cook? We all want meals that are healthy and great-tasting yet are easy and quick to prepare. But coming up with menus that meet these criteria can be challenging at best.
One great solution is soup. What better way for everyone to thaw out together after a long day than with a nice bowl of soup. But how do you get around the need to spend hours simmering broth and chopping vegetables? Simmer Soups, a line of all natural soup mixes made by Fantastic Foods, is one great option. Not only are the soups easy to prepare (just add water and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes), they are healthy and delicious. All flavors are completely vegetarian, low-fat and have a lower sodium content than most other soup mixes.
"It is the only major brand that is vegetarian and all natural," says Pauline Berry, marketing director at Fantastic Foods. "There are no artificial ingredients or colors. When you read the label, you don't need a dictionary to understand what all the ingredients are," she adds.
Unlike many other instant soups, Simmer Soups mixes don't taste like a can. They manage to deliver a home-cooked taste and nutritional value at the same time.
"They taste like you spent all day making it, it's something you can feel good about serving to your family," says Berry.
So don't worry about having enough time to cook. Slow down and enjoy some family time over a nice bowl of soup and conversation with the ones you love.
Simmer Soups are available in Creamy Potato, Split Pea, Vegetable Barley and Vegetarian Chicken Noodle and can be found in natural food stores and natural sections of grocery stores. For more information, go to fantasticfoods.com or call (800) 288-1089.
