(Gerry Furth-Sides) What I wouldn’t have done for Nona Lim on-the-go soups when I was a researcher for the LA Board of Education, both in the field and in their downtown office!  They provide a nutritious, tasty meal of bone broth and other flavors in a cup – no bowl needed — filled with Asian flavors that are both light and filling. https://www.nonalim.com

Wholesome ingredients including whole, fresh vegetables, and high quality meat, fish, and poultry are not only curated for their flavor, color, and texture; but for their health benefits and optimal nutritional profile.

 Nona Lim’s claims are backed up by it being the only bone broth brand to win two Sofi awards for flavor.  When you pour the chicken broth with turmeric soup into a porcelain cup, the mustardy turmeric color is very obvious when drained!

The traditional bone broths are simmered for 30 hours to bring out the flavor in slow cooking. have exceptional flavor from slow cooking, prepared from scratch in small batches, without additives and preservatives.  The care is obvious even in the shipping and are  individual portions in a spoon-free, spill-proof  sipping cup.  Flavors include Vietnamese Pho Bone Broth, Vegan Miso Broth, and Thai Curry and Lime Bone Broth.  

Each box is labeled with the name, lot number, date and expiration date.  The soups can be stored in the fridge for weeks and in the freezer for six months.

Nona Lim was inspired by the powerful benefits of a the most natural clean, nutrient-dense, plant-rich diet, evident in their trademarked label, “Closest to Whole”.

A corrugated paper holder  prevents the drinker’s hands from burning.  A fitted plastic cup cover easily peeled off.

Nora Lim, a former professional athlete (a world class fencer) is behind the product.  In her words, “I was constantly seeking natural ways to gain a competitive advantage; I discovered the power of food as functional medicine.
“I observed how inflammatory foods would hurt my performance: my body and brain would only function at peak performance or recover faster when fueled with whole, clean foods.   So I designed a healing, nutrient-dense, non-inflammatory meal program made with fresh, plant-rich, whole food ingredients.

 “Today, we offer a variety of prepared meals and soups, broths, and noodles. Infused with the Asian flavors and spices of my Singapore childhood, we focus on whole clean food minus additives, preservatives, low in sodium, and sugar. Our products are dairy free, mostly gluten free, and 100% crap-free.”

Nona Lim responsibly partners with the most highly respected and like-minded purveyors for ingredients. Local farms Dwelley Farms, a third generation family-run farm harvests Nona Lim’s organic zucchini.  Tofu is sourced from  Oakland neighbors, Hodo Soy Beanery.   Their whole milled varieties of flour are from Community Grains.

Nona Lim  soups, broths, and noodles are easily combined with a meat or vegetables for a complete meal.  I’ve even popped an egg into a hot soup for a breakfast on-the-go.  The Nona Lim website blog proves what inventive, inspired recipes their customers create and share from the products.
