Why is this healthy pot roast?

This pot roast uses my homemade cream of mushroom soup. I recommend making a huge batch of this and freezing in one cup servings. Homemade cream of mushroom soup is so much healthier than the canned stuff.
If you’re looking to stock your freezer for a bit, I also have a few other homemade soup recipes that you can use instead of canned. Cream of Asparagus and Cream of Chicken soups are great to have on hand for casseroles and slow cooker meals.
Another great homemade soup I have is this clean onion soup mix. You can use it to make dips, soups, and meals a little healthier.
