Split Pea Soup

Does anyone know if Split Pea Soup is a good lunch as a post op? I really like it, but it's hard for me to tell how they make it if I just buy it out of a large crockpot at the store. Any idea of protien content?

This is what FitDay has for nutritional info:

This is listed as split pea with ham, condensed, commercial:

But THIS is what they have for generic split pea (no ham):

Bottom line, I think you need to ask the store for nutritional info on their product. I think they usually buy in a frozen bag, and it should be listed on their packaging somewhere.

Re: This is what FitDay has for nutritional info:

This was hand made and had tomato in it and just a little bit of lean ham. I'm going to say somewhere in between these two, so I should be ok calorie wise, but maybe need another protien drink today to get in enough.

Thanks for looking it up!

Re: This is what FitDay has for nutritional info:

You are welcome. I love fitday for this stuff. Gives me a at least a general stab at what I am doing.

Oddly enough, I can't keep that stuff down -STILL (5+ yrs later).
