It’s not really hard to understand why I would want to transform myself in 2011; being a stay-at-home-mom means a lot of time spent tending to kids, the house, school, and my blog and not so much time for me.  I’ve decided to make 2011 the year I get it all together and transform my mind, body, and spirit and I’m so excited to share that transformation with y’all of you!    I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling this way and that’s why I’m excited to share something with y’all.  Progresso Souper You

 

“Progresso® Soup , available in 40 delicious flavors with 100 calories or less, can help curb your hunger, making it easier for you to stick to your weight management plan all year long. With hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Soup varieties with 100 calories or less offer a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables.”

 

Progresso has long been my favorite brand of soup simply because when it comes to taste they have the competition beat (at least in my opinion).  That being said I have to admit that I am sort of anti-light or diet foods simply because in my experience they taste bland, boring, and not appetizing, so I was a little more than anxious to try the Progresso Light soup varieties.  Since I received several different varieties of the Progresso Light soups I had a lot to choose from, since I adore Progresso’s Beef and Vegetable traditional soup I decided to try out the light version of Sirloin Steak and Vegetable first.  While the soup did lack quiet a bit of the sodium from the original version (and it was noticeably absent) the soup was still rich and very flavorful and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it.  Of all of the Progresso Light soups that I tried my absolute favorite is definitely the Chicken and Homestyle Noodle, I was amazed that I didn’t miss the extra salt and have actually taken to buying the light version over my old favorite traditional variety.  Overall I was impressed at the amount of flavor, richness, and lack of sodium in the Progresso Light soups, I think substituting one of these soups for your traditional soup will definitely help you cut calories and get you well on your way to a “Souper” new you for 2011!

 

Progresso also has a great contest going on right now that I thought all of you would love to know about!
