Ahh! Two treasures of summer – watermelon and basil – in one refreshing, super-easy soup. And so healthy. Many soups are full of heart-damaging saturated fat and sodium. For example, a bowl of Sweet Corn Soup at Chili’s Restaurant has 20 grams of saturated fat (the equivalent of two Big Macs) and 960 milligrams of sodium (more than half what we should have for the entire day). Our Tomato, Watermelon, and Basil Soup has zero fat and a mere 15 milligrams of sodium.
