National Soup Month: Eating soup can be much easier

January happens to be National Soup Month, and what a better time to celebrate this warm soul food than at this time of year, with record-breaking cold temperatures. Let us know if we can help you enjoy your favorite soup, whether it be a broth, bisque, chili or gazpacho. We have adaptive tools that can make the preparation and eating of your soup much easier.

Peel the produce

EZ Peel Vegetable Peeler

To begin making your soup, you may need to peel some of the vegetables you want to include. For those who have had a stroke or have Parkinson’s disease or a neuromuscular disorder, peeling with a traditional knife can be hazardous. The EZ Peel Vegetable Peeler fits ergonomically in the palm of your hand and keeps your fingers away from the blade.

Stir the pot

Of course you will need to properly sauté your veggies, cook your meat and mix it all with your selection of broth or stock. Many people who have limited arm movement use one arm predominantly, while the other arm is weaker or more limited. This makes stirring with pots and pans troublesome when pans or pots begin sliding around on the stove. Prevent potentially dangerous situations with our Pan or Pot Holder, which is made of a wire frame with suction-cup feet.

Add grated toppings

Not all recipes call for a grater, but who doesn’t like freshly grated cheese on top of their soup? Try the Easi-Grip Grater. With a right-angled handle that adds leverage and reduces stress in the wrist, the Easi-Grip Grater is a no-brainer compared to clumsy traditional graters.

Chow down!

After cooking your soup and adding your toppings, it’s time to eat it! Do you experience the problem of soup splattering out of the spoon by the time you get it to your mouth? Have you thought to yourself that it would be easier just to drink the soup but then realized it might not seem dignified? A Covered Spoon is made specifically for the purpose of eating soup, as well as small food like corn or peas. The lid on the spoon prevents the liquid from escaping.

For this scenario, you may also consider the Good Grips Weighted Soup Spoon. The weighted handle reduces tremors, and the end of the spoon bends left or right for a better angle. To reduce spilling even further, the bowl of the spoon features a slightly raised lip around the edge.
