We didn’t do a great job in this soup — way too many carbs.  But, you can see how we setup our soups and calculate the carbs.  I still had this soup for lunch — just without crackers.  You can top it with a little parmesan cheese.  We make the soup and try to equally divide into  8 or 9 screw-top containers.  We just grab 2 soups as we dash out of the house in the morning.
