Many of us have been there in one way or another. The New Year hits and we resolve to eat healthier, exercise more, and be more like Mary Poppins (practically perfect in every way.) Unfortunately, it doesn’t take too long before I get sick of Caesar salads and yogurt – I want something hearty and tasty. All too often those two things come with calories and other things that are not at all considered healthier. With Progresso soups, you can get the best of both worlds, with a lot of flavor in just a few calories.
Whether it’s the middle of winter or even the height of summer, sometimes I just want a bowl of piping hot soup. But of course, when you’re trying to be healthy, I used to think most tasty soup options would go out the window. I had no idea that Progresso offered so many varieties of soups that were under 100 calories per serving. From Hearty Vegetable and Noodles to Roasted Garlic Chicken, Reduced Sodium to Ligh, there are just so many soups to choose from.
The other day I had a hankering for Progresso’s Chicken & Wild Rice, which is just 100 calories per serving. I was curious to see how much flavor the soup would had, so I heated it up stove top and poured it into my bowl ready to eat. You remember when I mentioned a hearty soup? While I wouldn’t normally think chicken and rice are hearty, just look at this spoonful of yumminess.
Doesn’t it look delicious? And let me tell you, it tasted amazing! It had great seasoning, the chicken was tender, the rice was perfect and it was just what I needed on a snowy, blustery day. Sometimes it seems like other soups take out the calories by taking out the ingredients that make the soup taste good, but there was absolutely nothing lacking from this bowl of Progresso.
