Progresso High Fiber Soup Review & Giveaway


There are somedays that I really do not have time and I have misplanned my day and end up with hardly any time at all to prepare dinner. I hate when that happens. Being a mom it is important to me that my two girls get all the nutrition they need. There have been days when I'm late and when I get home I fund hubby gave my five year old just a sandwhich. That is fine, but how about some soup to go with it... my five year old LOVES soup!

In today's Food Review I will be reviewing the NEW Progresso Soup with fiber. You will be excited to hear that in addition to the 75 great flavors of Progresso Soup, there are four new, great tasting Progresso soups that have 28% of your daily fiber intake per serving (7 grams) and have no added MSG or artificial flavors. The new varieties include Chicken Tuscany, Creamy Tomato Basil, Hearty Vegetable and Noodles and Homestyle Minestrone.

How much dietary fiber do I need?

Consider that the average American now consumes less than 15 grams of dietary fiber daily, while prehistoric man got between 100 and 150 grams of dietary fiber every day! A vast amount of scientific and medical literature suggests that the incidences of many "modern health plagues" (such as heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers) decrease when humans receive 35 or more grams of fiber daily. We recommend that you consume 10 grams of fiber for every 1000 calories you consume, but should you consume less than 2,500 calories, you should still strive for a minimum of 25 grams of fiber each day. You'll be surprised to discover just how easy it is to reach this goal. For a handy listing of foods according to their content of dietary fiber, just see Dietary Fiber - Food Sources.

With that said I am glad that the NEW Progresso soup has 7g of fiber. I got to try out the Homestyle Minestrone. The pros of the soup is now I can have a few cans and tell hubby to heat that for a few minutes and he can offer that with a sandwhich and I will be happy that he did! I received two branded mugs and spoons to try out the new Progress soup, information, and prize packs have been provided by Progresso and MyBlogSpark..



~~~~~~~~~~~~REVIEW~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cost: Very Affordable: $0.01 - $3
You can purchase a can of Progresso soup for under $3! A can can easily serve two people if you make some bread or have a sandwhich along with it.

Preparation: Easy, Just pop open the lid and pour into a microwave safe bowl or into a saucepan to head over the stove.


Cooking Time: The Cooking time is 2-4 minutes and I heated it in the microwave for the full 4 minutes. No additional time was needed.

Texture
: The texture of the vegetables were nice n soft. The Garbanzo beans did have a bit more texture, but that is how they are. You might want them a bit softer, but doesn't lower my rating.

Taste
: This soup is filled with spices that you find in Ministronie soup like, parsley and is visible in the soup. All the spices give it a nice blanket of flavor. The average person might be tempted to add additional salt or pepper, but it is not needed.

Smell
: Excellent! As the soup comes out of the microwave you can smell the vegetables and it smells like minestrone soup. My husband came to check what I was doing.... that is a good sign.

Overall: EXTRA LARGE star... I'd recommend this to every busy mom as a way to serve a great meal or side dish with excellent source of fiber, low fat and low calories, which is never a bad thing.
