Ugh! We are right smack dab in the middle of winter and most of us have already been snowed in at least once or twice so far. Seriously, I am starting to get the worst case of cabin fever ever known to mankind. The only things that are making this winter bearable are the stack of books that need to be read and the cans of Progresso Soup that are sitting in the cupboard.

In fact, I can smell the Beef Pot Roast soup cooking right now… Oh, wait, that’s my kids cooking a can of soup for an afterschool “snack” before basketball and color guard practices. But don’t think these soups are just for snacks, oh no, they’re packed full of enough hearty vegetables, potatoes and chunks of meat to form a complete meal (just add some crusty bread and a salad). Yum!

And with soups starting at 100 calories or less, no need to worry about messing up your diet (I know that’s important to all of us who are still trying to fulfill those New Year’s resolutions to get fit). In fact, the Progresso Light varieties have 80 calories or less and are the only soups endorsed by Weight Watchers.

One of my favorite flavors is the Chicken and Wild Rice. Omg, so full of carrots, chunks of chicken, fluffy wild rice… And the broth was so hearty and delicious that I barely wanted to share it with my daughter (but I did because that’s the kind of mom I am). I’d love to give you the opportunity to try Progresso Soup and let it become a part of your healthy weight management program.
