Which Dr is Dr McDougall? I thought he was the PCRM guy but the more I think about it the more I think that is Dr Barnard.
Anywho I was trolling through Stop & Shop on my lunch break looking for something to eat after I inadvertently went to the one with no salad bar and in the natural foods area I stumbled upon some ramen-type cups that were actually vegan. I got a thai peanut noodle one. then I realized the brand was Dr McDougall’s Right Foods. I feel like I know his name and I cant place it (China Study?)
Anyways I haven’t tasted it yet it’s still cooking but it seems pretty decent. It says vegan right on it. all the ingredients are things ive heard of and not chemical names. And it has some sort of sustainable forestry stamp on it. it also doesn’t appear to be horribly bad for you like some ramen-type cups. They had a bunch of flavors the only other one I remember was kung pao something.
Ill report back on the flavor once it’s cool enough to put in my mouth.

Flavor report: it’s ok. it’s not amazing and it’s not horrible.
It’s fitting the bill as something edible that I needed right now when I had nothing else.
There is some sort of spice in it (ie spicy hot). I am a baby when it comes to spice so maybe others wouldn’t even notice it but I detect something just a tiny bit spicy. Apparently the ingredients were listed on the paper thing that was around it that I recycled already so not sure what the spicy is.

Yes, they're OK. Certainly not something I'd want to eat every day, but as far as instant soup cups go they're fine. My boyfriend hoards them in his desk at work for those days when it's hard to leave and get food. I haven't tried every single variety but the ones I've had have all been fine.

I like the pad thai one, the others taste pretty similar to each other. I keep them in my desk at work for when I can't go get my lunch and don't bring anything. The only problem is that they're only 200 calories so they're not a meal by themselves, and for that little calories they're pretty high in sodium.

Ditto; I think they're pretty decent, but maybe a little bland? They do soups, too.

I haven't seen this flavor, but it sounds good!

Yes, they tend to be quite salty but also somehow bland at the same time? I usually end up adding a little hot sauce when I have them.

I'm with everyone else. I tend to pick these up when I'm sick and know that I can't handle making anything to eat.

I bought some of these from a vegan shop in Sydney a couple of weeks ago, I haven't tried them yet. I keep planning to bring them to work for lunches, but I feel like I need to fry up some tofu or something to mix in and make them a bit more substantial. I need to hurry up and do that- it's raining all day today and I really wish I didn't have to leave the building to get lunch.

I like the boxes of shelf-stable soup better than the cups:

In fact I just ate a box of the minestrone for lunch today. they're good to grab at the supermarket for lunch if you have access to a microwave and something to dump them into.

Isn't McDougall the oil-free dude? The China Study is Colin Campbell.

For those of you in the USA, you can buy multipacks of the McDougall's footstuffs for relatively relatively reasonable prices on Amazon. Just in case you want more options or want to stock your vegan bomb shelter.

McDougall is one of the oil-free dudes. He has some diet books out, he mostly advocates basing your diet on starch.

im starting to think maybe he was in the movie Forks Over Knives in addition obviously to Dr Campbell. i looked at his website and i cannot for the life of me remember why i know who he is.

i feel like there are a bunch of oil free dudes so im getting all of them confused.

Dr. McDougall is mostly about low to no-fat, but his focus is high starch, so whole grain goodness is what he promotes.

Those aseptic soups are tasty and very handy when you've forgotten to pack a lunch. I get the low-sodium versions.

He was in Forks Over Knives! The only book I can remember that he wrote is The Starch Solution. He was also mentioned in the China Study, I think.

The tomato-red pepper one is really good.

i've seen them at earth fare, they are so pricey, i get excited when they go on sale for $1.50 a cup (!!!!) i buy them as a treat since they are so pricey, or just to have on hand in case i come down with a cold or something so at least i can eat something. i forget which flavor i really do like, maybe the chicken flavored ramen? can't recall, but i'd recognize the box and placement on the shelf ;) i tried a few of his other flavors, like hot n sour, and a couple others, but wasn't that fond of them.

i read China Study and i saw FoK so that must be it. mystery solved i feel better now!

when i think of starch i think of potatoes and bread for some reason so im gonna eat all french fries and bread since he said starch is good for me. YUM! :-)

I will admit that I've made them before, and even my junk-food-eating omni bf loved them. but that said, deep-fried french fries are more delicious.
