Be #CartonSmart this Holiday Season! Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup idea

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

When you go grocery shopping do you look for foods that are sold in Tetra Pak cartons? I do!

Did you know?

  •  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 stack.
  • The unique packaging process preserves the flavor and nutrients of food without the use of preservatives. 
  • Recycleable 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.

If everyone bought at least one product this holiday season in a Tetra Pak carton, just think of the impact it could make. Start small, but it all adds up.

Here are some suggestions ~ Pacific Foods Organic Pumpkin Puree

I’m going to make pumpkin pie with it for Christmas. We had apple at Thanksgiving and I’m craving a pumpkin!

There is a good recipe on the carton for Cranberry Pecan Bars. Sounds yummy!

I had been looking at all the leftover turkey in my fridge for too long when the Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Simply Stock arrived.

I was craving my mom’s homemade chicken noodle soup and thought perfect! I’m going to make Turkey Noodle Soup.

The secret which makes it so good is the Reames frozen noodles. I boiled them in the Organic Chicken Stock and added the chopped turkey, celery, carrots and onion. oh and seasonings of course!

I was sad there was no leftovers. For the recipe, add a cup of broth for every person (or two if you want more later!). I recommend at least six though, with the bag of noodles and add your veggies and flavor to meet your taste.

  1. I wasn’t aware of this packaging but will keep my eyes open for it. The square jellied cranberry is humerous to me :)

  2. I love Tetra Pak foods, and also Pacific is one of my favorite organic brands to stock my pantry with!
