Progresso Soup Giveaway -- CONTEST CLOSED

In late December, I was offered to participate in a Review / Giveaway from Progresso Soups, sponsored by the MyBlogSpark Program.

I was absolutely delighted and soon received a large package of 15 cans of the wonderful Progresso LIGHT line of soups, a large, sturdy blue Progresso soup crock, and a digital jump rope!

The soups have been just marvelous! Not only do they warm you against the extreme cold we've been having this winter, but they are very lo-calorie and have helped me maintain my weight through these long days stuck inside the house.

My favourites, by far, are the Italian-Style Meatball with Penne, French Onion, and Southwestern-style Vegetable. Yummy!

Progresso offers so many varieties: High Fiber, Light, Traditional, Reduced Sodium,Vegetable Classics, Rich & Hearty, and Microwave.

They are all delicious and fit quite well into my low-calorie / low-sodium meal plans. That's important to me.

From the Progresso Website: "Managing your weight can be difficult, but finding foods that are satisfying doesn´t have to be. With Progresso Light and 100 Calorie Soups, you can enjoy a delicious cup of soup that provides great taste and variety all at 100 calories or less.

With surprisingly hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Light and 100 Calorie Soups offer varieties with a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. Satisfying your taste buds, Progresso Light and 100 Calories Soups can help curb your hunger, making it easier for you to stick to your weight management plan."

I love Progresso Soups and am excited about the new line. I would take the soup for lunch instead of (gasp) going out for fast food. This would make a healthy change from those ramen noodle packages also.

Please enter me in your wonderful drawing - I would like to have Progresso soup for a light dinner especially during the colder months of the year.

I've become a huge fan of Progresso soup for almost a year now when I found the chicken and wild rice has only 220+ calories for the can. I eat their soups at least 5 days a week and would like to make it 7. It makes a huge difference in keeping the weight down and feeling healthier.
Thanks for entering me Terri!

I'm always incorporating low fat low sodium soups now on the weekends , so I have the calories to eat popcorn at a movie (100 cal). So enter me...

Ms. PJ Geek said...

low calorie soups / low sodium for me add volume and allow me to have treats..would love to try progresso

madeline said...

I'd like to eat more soup at lunch for the vegetables. I tend to only eat veggies at dinner, so this will be a good way to add more vitamins!

Doreen said...

I think the Light Progresso soups would make a nice warm and hearty lunch, especially this time of year. I also love to have a can of soup with a salad for supper on nights when I don't feel up to cooking, but still want something healthy. Thanks for the chance! Kim D. threadthelove (AT)yahoo(DOT)com

I would use Progresso soups to make sure that I actually eat lunch. It would help me to not skip meals.

EmmettFerret said...

Incorporating soup would be so easy. I'd make it lunch at the office. Inexpensive, quick and tasty. That would be simple.


Cassie said...

Progresso Soup is already the only soup I like. Other soups are too watery and don't have enough real food in them for me! I love the hearty noodle soups!

Julie said...

It would not be hard at all for me to incorporate Progresso Soup.I am a soup lover and right now have Progresso soup at at least twice a week :)

Birdson said...

I usually eat Progresso Soup for breakfast its far more nutritious & filling than coffee...& I can take it in a mug & eat it while commuting ....
