Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

With all the major holidays pass us, that means we had a lot of really big family dinners.  For my family, this means we usually have turkey or ham.  This year we went with turkey because im not a big fan of ham.  I wanted to have turkey because I found a new soup recipe that I have been waiting to try.   When I was given the opportunity to try Pacific Organic Simply Chicken Stock.  I was extremely excited!  I have already fell in love with a few of there products all ready.  I love there Creamy Tomato Soup and their Chicken Noodle they are both perfect for a cold day.

Speaking of soup this Turkey and Wild Rice soup is the winner recipe I tried with my Pacific Organic Chicken Stock.  The  flavors of the broth is amazing, it brought a lot of great flavor to my recipe.   I also love how they either have low sodium or they are unsalted.  Which I think is huge in soups, I much rather be able to taste the soup rather then all the salt you get other brands of chicken broth.

The main thing I love about their products is they are all organic.  We don’t eat  as much organic foods as I would like, but when we have to opportunity we do.  I love how I can grab one of their containers and I am able to pronounce everything on the label.   Which to me it means im getting great quality and I know im getting the freshest products.

Here are a few interesting facts from Pacific Foods.  Its amazing what they do help save our environment and I like to think im taking part of it as well when I recycle my recycled containers.

Why Tetra Pak cartons are pantry stables for those that enjoy living smart: 

• Tetra Pak® cartons are made of 70% paper, a renewable resource, from selectively harvested, re-grown trees that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) 

• Cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans…or even an egg! 

• Cartons are space saving, easy to store and open. Keep your pantry neat and toss your can openers. , stackable and space saving. 

• The unique packaging process preserves the flavor and nutrients of food without the use of preservatives.Product quality is exactly the way it was intended to be. 

• Recyclable and in fact result in 60% less landfill waste than cans 

• Cartons are re-closable so you can use what you need and save the rest for later

These all great reasons to help spread the word about being #Carton Smart every little bit helps.
