This weekend, due to my own carelessness, I bought one of the most pointless food items ever: soup with an energy content of 26 kcal per 100g.

Now you may not be too aware of calories and such. For your information, orange juice and milk contain ca 50 kcal per 100g. One slice of wholegrain bread is around 70–100 kcal. A banana is ca 130 kcal.

So someone has actually created a soup with less energy than orange juice. The whole 600g pot is a meal that provides less energy than two slices of bread. I believe it probably took me more energy to carry the soup home than I would get from eating it!

Stomach volume is at a premium right now, since Blump is taking up a lot of space. It would be entirely too easy to not eat enough because I feel stuffed after relatively small meals, which is why I try to pay some attention my calorie intake. And therefore I don’t think I can afford to waste the equivalent space of 3 glasses of juice on something that would give me marginally more energy than one large banana. Besides, unlike juice, the soup won’t even be fresh or thirst-quenching. Much though I dislike to throw away food, I think this pot of soup is simply not worth eating.
