Step 1: Making some soup!

Toss a couple bullion cubes into your large travel mug (I used the one I brought my coffee in), add some dried minced onions, and fill with water. Make sure you either use hot (nearly boiling) water, or use a microwaveable cup, and microwave the whole mix until it's hot.

Step 2: Spice it up like a cheap bastard!

A couple of packets of ketchup, hot sauce, salt or pepper will liven this soup right up ... if you feel the need.

Step 3: Check out those calories!

5 calories per cube?!!!! The same goes for those packs of ketchup and onions and whatnot. You'd have to add a hamburger or something to get this soup over 50 calories.

That's 10 calories for the cubes, but also 76% of your daily sodium intake
