I suggest adding the sodium content under the macros because soups tend to have a ton of sodium. Other than that, it sounds great. :burger:

Sodium content is 1400mg. I realize it is high, but the soup that I used had the lowest sodium content of those that I found at the grocery store.

Somethings not right...
3.5 grams of fat only??

Tuna alone has quite a bit...
Interesting mixture, I may try it one day lol

no tuna is not fatty at all. a can usually has around 1 gram of fat in it. (if packed in water).

Also tastes good with a can of crab meat.

Yeah the tuna I used was packed in water. The protein was actually about 70g. Sorry for the miscalculation. I'm having my second round of it tonight. Still delicious!

How do you actually make it?

Well I still love my tuna packed in olive oil :D

Making it is pretty simple. I bought one of the ready to serve cans of soup (540ml) and dumped into to a pot. I drained and added one can of tuna (if you need the fats and calories use tuna packed in oil). I then added a half cup of dry curd cottage cheese. I just warmed it on medium-low for about 10 minutes and it's ready to eat. Pretty simple and full of protein.

Seen it written a number of times of having a max of 30gms Protein in one hit, so this would imply that you should have half your soup now and half later. Any opinions ?

I need more than 30g of protein in one sitting if I am going to get my 250g a day so I go a little bigger on some meals. It's only 650 calories as well so it works right into my caloric intake for a day.
