If you're not into making homemade soup there is a brand in the freezer section that is low in calories and sodium:  Tabatchnick.  Today I'm having Minestrone - it's only 100 calories, 1.5 grams of fat and 350mg of sodium.  If you have one cup it equals 1 starch.  Today I had 2 slices of 40 cal bread for breakfast which is also a starch, for lunch the soup plus 2 slices of 40 cal bread which is two starches, and tonight I'm making mushroom stroganoff from the Clean Eating Magazine (140 cal, 3g fat) and 1/4 cup pasta will be another starch.  Lastly, my 1/2 cup low cal ice cream is a starch.  That's 5 starches today which is the total amount needed for a 1200 caloric diet.  Just think:  if you're going to have a low cal tomato, or broth based soup, a cup equals 1 starch.  Just watch the sodium - premade soups can be dangerous!
