Have you had the chance to try the new High Fiber Soups from Progresso yet? Available in Chicken Tuscany, Creamy Tomato Basil, Hearty Vegetable and Noodles and Homestyle Minestrone, each provides 28% of the Recommended Daily Value of fiber per serving (7 grams) and contain no artificial flavors or added MSG.
Thanks to Progresso and MyBlogSpark I had the chance to try the Chicken Tuscany variety of Progresso's High Fiber Soup and as a bonus, I received a pretty cool set of branded soup mugs and two very nice, high quality soup spoons to use to enjoy my soup! Already a big fan of Progresso soups to begin with, I had high expectations for the quality of this soup.
We all know the importance of adding fiber to our diets these days because of the many health benefits fiber has been shown to provide, including controlling blood sugar levels, lowering blood cholesterol, aiding in weight loss, helping to prevent constipation and lowering the risk of negative digestive conditions.
We all also know that few of us manage to get in enough, and making minor changes to our diets can help.
High fiber soup is one tasty way to help increase those numbers. The Progresso High Fiber Chicken Tuscany Soup that I tried contained loads of white great northern beans, chunks of white meat chicken, plus a mixture of onion, tomato, celery, carrots, zucchini and spinach. I found for my taste, I needed to bump up the salt just a bit and also added some fresh cracked black pepper, but the flavor overall was excellent and exactly what I would expect from a Progresso soup product. 130 calories per 1 cup serving, only 3 grams of fat, and 2 points per serving for WW.
And, thanks to Progresso and MyBlogSpark, I have an identical prize pack to share with one of my readers, including two branded soup mugs, two branded soup spoons, and a can of Progresso High Fiber Chicken Tuscany Soup!

My change has been a small one, but a huge step for me anyway. We now eat whole wheat bread instead of white - most of the time. I really don't like whole wheat bread and so, it is a stretch for me to serve it. But I'm learning!!ReplyDelete
My change has been to start blogging. It has made me more a better cook, and I am much more aware of the foods i cook.ReplyDelete
I have recently started working out with my boyfriend. Mainly to spend time with him, but also so I don't feel guilty about eating dessert!ReplyDelete
At 57 I have finally come to the conclusion that my appearance is not nearly as important as whether or not I am healthy. Healthy eating makes me feel better and feel better about myself, even if I am a little fluffier looking than I was at 25! I splurge every once in awhile (like at a family reunion yesterday) but most of the time I eat pretty healthy.ReplyDelete
My change has been walking - once you start it is great!! Love progresso soups - hope I am lucky.ReplyDelete
I've pretty much given up drinking sodas. Used to drink at least a 32 ounce bottle a day! Was a real struggle, and I do cheat once in a while, but not often. Trying to get rid of a little "fluff" without introducing any more wrinkles, also. CJReplyDelete
We've been making small changes over a long time. Like eating whole grain bread instead of white. Using Splenda instead of sugar when possible. Substituting olive oil instead of butter in some recipes. Tiny steps, sure, but added together they do make a difference.ReplyDelete
I have stopped eating fast food and trying to make better choices when I am out. I need to do more!ReplyDelete
I walk a couple times a weekReplyDelete
I have tryed to cut out most all fat I walk 2 miles a day weather permiting,,I have lost 20 pounds since feb. I have not had a cookie since then boo hoo I am 62 and I want to live longer so I just try real hard I eat the progresso soups but I would still WOULD love to winReplyDelete
I've almost given up Cokes...I have 1-2 a week now instead of 3-4 a day...I"ve found that WATER really is GOOD!!!!!ReplyDelete
apparently I can't remember my email address!!ReplyDelete
I'm trying Weight Watchers again.ReplyDelete
I've quit smoking, quit drinking TaB and started a food diary. Not too bad!ReplyDelete
I prefer homemade soups but I do like to keep some cans on hand at the office for days when I'm too busy to get out or I just don't know what to eat. Maybe I'll give this one a try!ReplyDelete
I turned off the television while eating dinner. This way I'm not just stuffing my face with too much food because I'm not paying attention.Being able to just have nice conversation and relaxed after work is an added bonus.ReplyDelete
Please enter me - my change is eating more whole grains and fiber. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I made a healthy change by braving the dentist and signing up to get three caveties filled. *gulp* Wish me luck. I may need some soup after all that drilling. :(ReplyDelete
My change is having my daughter 2 years ago and she keeps my going non stop.ReplyDelete
I have replaced soft drinks with green tea. Green tea is full of all kinds of anti-oxidants, and research shows that it can be helpful in the prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease, lowering cholesterol, rheumatoid arthritis and infections. I drink mine unsweetened, but you can use splenda, or honey as a healthy alternative to sugar.ReplyDelete
The biggest change I have made in my life is eating more fresh fruit and vegetables. It's amazing how much better you feel when you eat healthier!ReplyDelete
My change is that we eat whole wheat pasta now & less pre-packaged meals!ReplyDelete
I walk daily sometimes twice a day. I am really trying to make better food choices.ReplyDelete
I've increased my walking and improved both my health and as an extra added bonus my dog's health is better too. email@example.comReplyDelete
We have cut back eating red meat, we now eat more chicken and fish, along with fresh vegeables. I know it sounds boring, but it is all in the spices!!ReplyDelete
Great post! Being from the south caught my eye as I'm a southerner also. The best thing I like about Progresso soup is that I only have to open a can for a right tastey meal!ReplyDelete
Great tips y'all!!ReplyDelete
