A Souper Giveaway From Progresso

There is a giveaway, but you'll have to bear with me first - LOL!  As you know, I've been doing a 10 week challenge to start off the year with some healthy habits.  As part of that, I've been doing Weight Watchers and tracking what I eat. One of the foods that helps me stay on track is soup!  I love having healthy soups for dinner and even more for lunch.
I've shared several healthy soups right here on my blog - you can scroll through the dinners and side dish lables on my sidebar.  But I don't always have homemade soup on hand.  That's where Progresso comes in!  I've always enjoyed Progresso soups, so I was especially happy to hear about their new varieties of Progresso Light and 100-calorie soups!  Not only that, but they offered to let me try the new varieties of soup along with a cute soup mug and a jump rope to help me get in shape.  Does one say no to free healthy soup from a brand they already like?!  No, one does not!

I tried a few varieties and really did like the soups.  It's important to note that each can is 2 servings - people sometimes forget that.  You can eat the whole can and the points are still low or you can share it with somebody and add on a healthy sandwich or salad for a more balanced meal.  If you're concerned about sodium intake you may want to only have 1 serving at a time or make sure that your other meals for the day are low in sodium.  However, Progresso even has low-sodium varieties of soups to choose from.

Progresso is celebrating these new soups by having a Souper You Debut contest from Jan. 4 through Mar. 15!  Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 21st-23rd. The prize includes roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in a NYC hotel, a full makeover, a $1,000 wardrobe shopping spree and personal consultation at a New York department store.  Got to to get all the details and enter!!  While you're there, download a coupon for $1 off any three varieties of Progresso Soup!    

But wait!!  Progresso gave me a special pack to give away to one wonderful reader!
One U.S. reader will win this pack with 2 varieties of Progresso soup, a soup mug, and an electronic jump rope that keeps track of your jumps and even calories burned!  By the way, that soup mug holds an entire can of soup! 

To enter:  Stop over at Progresso and then leave a comment here telling me one of the 40 varieties of 100 calorie or less soups that sounds yummy to you! (I like all the chicken flavors.)  That's it - easy!  This giveaway is open through Thursday 2/25.

Disclosure: Progresso provided me with information about their soups, several cans of soup, a soup mug, and an electronic jump rope for free.  They also generously provided one gift pack to give to my readers.

Have a souper day!

  1. I think the beef pot roast sounds yummy -- I'd love to win this giveaway!

  2. Zesty Santa Fe Style Chicken sounds good to me!

  3. Meatball with penne and the roast beef both sound wonderful! I've also found that soup is a great lunch when I'm watching my WW points!

  4. Italian-Style Vegetable all the way! Awesome giveaway. So cool they did all that for you!

  5. Have always loved their chicken and wild rice..we eat soup and salad or sandwich often for supper. Progresso is the best!

  6. Progresso's French Onion soup doesn't just sound IS yummy. Just had it less than a week ago. (Though I ruined the 100 calorie part by adding bread and melted swiss cheese...super delicious, though.)

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  8. I have never tried the Italian Style Meatball and Penne, but it looks great! I'd love to win this giveaway!

  9. I like the chicken noodle. I also like their split pea and ham a lot, but that's not 100 calories or less! Good stuff!
