Worst Soup Ever!

1 Mar

Today was a bad food day; not bad like I screwed up on my points or something but bad like my lunch was gross and dinner had problems too. Sadness. 😦

Lunch was a can of Weight Watchers SmartOnes soup, Homestyle Vegetable and Noodle flavour. Sounds yummy, right? Well, I thought it did. 🙂 It was my first time trying this flavour and I will never buy it again, yuck! The first thing I didn’t like was the seasoning in the broth – now, that is a purely personal taste bud thing so don’t judge the soup based on that! lol.

The second thing that was gross was the noodles; they were slimy. Actually slimy! I have had canned soup that had noodles in it and those noodles weren’t slimy so I don’t know what the hell happened to these noodles to make them that way. *shudder*

The third and worst thing? There are corn kernels in the soup; well, I bit down and crunch! No, not even crunch…what’s the descriptive word for when you bite on something hard as a friggin rock that not even your teeth can break? Well, whatever that noise is…hear that! lol. I know it was corn cause I took it out of my mouth to have a look. Yuck.

So that was my lunch experience – could have gone better…

Dinner was a salmon steak, some sweet potato fries and veggies. Not so shabby huh? Well, the fries got burned while still somehow being soft instead of crunchy and the salmon tasted…not bad…just, not quite the way it normally does. I think cause more of the sauce then usual seemed to slip off the salmon and burn on the tin foil the fish was sitting on.

It’s like my food day was cursed or something!

I made up for it by eating half a Purdy’s chocolate bar, yum! I split it with the roomie because I knew if I opened it and cut it in half I’d end up eating it all but if I gave half away, well, can’t eat it then! lol. It was Purdy’s version of a Bounty bar, so chocolate wrapped around coconut, holy crap way good! 😀 The entire bar is 5 points but 2.5 points for half a bar isn’t so bad. The half bar I had was perfect though, eating the whole thing would have been too much, the half was the perfect amount of sweet and full of awesome taste. I totally recommend that chocolate bar – but only eat half at a time! lol 😀

Today I ate:

1 package Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal = 3 points

1 can SmartOnes Homestyle Veg & Noodle soup = 4 points

1 orange = 1 point

2 leftover pancakes = 2 points

1/2 tbls Nutella = 1 point

1/2 tbls light peanut butter = 1 point

1 teriyaki salmon steak = 3 points

cooked mixed veggies = 0 points

85 grams Alexia sweet potato fries = 3 points

2 digestive cookies = 2 points

1/2 Purdy’s chocolate bar = 2.5 points

Total Points Eaten = 22.5

So, yeah, I should have not eaten the chocolate bar, I had reached my points for the day and didn’t neeeeed the chocolate bar but for some reason I ate it…I hate when I don’t have a reason for why I ate something. Even if the reason is pms or emotional eating or whatever least there is a reason, but days like today…no reason, not even a glimmer of a reason in my eye. lol. shrug. Ah well, it’s just the way I am I guess – and really, who wants to have a reason for everything they do? Where’s the fun in that? 😛

    I hear ya! I don’t know anyone who really likes the WW canned soups. I know the ones I have tried were kinda blah – even the Thai Curry one was not very spicy. Have to say, I make a way better veggie soup than WW. Too bad, as the other foods they make are pretty good – their frozen entrees are usually quite tasty, and I really like their frozen desserts – too bad we can’t get the Mississipi Mud Pie any more, as that was my favourite!

      yeah, a girl at work saw the can and her first response was “oh that’s such a gross soup! way salty!” I didn’t find it salty but I did find lots of problems with it – obviously! lol
      the frozen entrees by them are great, I love em, so I don’t understand why they can’t make decent soup…
      Mmm! I remember that Mississipi Mud Pie, it was the best, I wish they’d bring it back but in lieu of that I do really enjoy the chocolate cake they currently have. 🙂
