Tomato soup is a classic. Add it with a grilled cheese sandwich and you’ve got a tasty meal perfect for a cold or rainy day. Counting calories is important for individuals trying to lose weight. Every last calorie should be accounted for. With that said, how many calories in tomato soup are there?
The answer depends on the type of tomato soup we’re talking about. But one serving of a regular can of tomato soup made from water has 90 calories in it.
The 90 calories is a typical half-cup serving size. There are 2.5 servings in a regular size can of tomato soup which means there are 225 calories in one can made with water. Add skim milk and you can tack on 130 extra calories to the 90 making for a total 220.
You can also purchase creamy tomato soup at the store. Many people prefer this variety. This type of soup has 160 calories in it per serving, which is much higher than the regular kind with no cream.
Tomato soup can be very nutritious for you, but make sure to watch the calorie consumption as well as what you eat along with it. Adding a grilled cheese sandwich filled with fattening American or Cheddar cheese and two slices of white bread can add as much as 700 calories to your meal.
Stick to plain old tomato soup made with water and you’ll be well on your way to losing weight.
