Progresso Reduced Sodium Soups Review & Giveaway

Posted on: November 26, 2010

As I may have mentioned once or twice, Minnie Mama is always trying to eat healthy and she hates the cold weather. Put those two things together and what do you have? You have a Minnie Mama who’s obsessed with soup! Yup, it’s true. I absolutely LOVE soup and literally eat it everyday for lunch and sometimes dinner too. I mean, what’s not to love about soup? It’s the perfect low calorie / low fat comfort food that totally fills you up while still being super healthy! And it’s the perfect lunch for a busy Mama  as I just grab a can on my way out the door.

But I am soup snob and I refuse to eat just any kind of soup. I only eat Progresso brand, not even joking. I’ve tried other brands that will remain nameless as I don’t want to be mean, but they just don’t compare — they are either too watery or too salty or just too gross. Nothing compares to my Progresso! It’s the only brand of soup that I will buy for myself and my family — bottom line, it’s the best!

So can you imagine my excitement when I was contacted by My Blog Spark to review a new line of soup by Progresso?! Yes, I know this may sound sad, but this is what Minnie Mama’s life has boiled down too — sheer excitement over testing out soups. It’s true. I was honestly estatic and I am not even bein sarcastic, just ask the hubs who now has proof I am nuts!  🙂 Anyways, back to my story — I was chosen to try out Progresso’s new line of reduced sodium soups!

My Blog Spark generously sent me two delicious cans of  Progresso’s Reduced Sodim Tomato Basil Parmesan soup, an awesome Progresso mug that’s microwave safe and holds a whole can of soup w/o spilling over, along with a balance ball and a work out DVD. How cool is that?!

So I sampled devoured the soup and OMG it’s absolutely delicious! It’s the best tasting tomato soup I’ve ever had and since it’s reduce sodium I also ate the 2nd can for dinner that night! I didn’t feel guilty about eating too much sodium and any excuse to not cook dinner works for me, especially when the hubs is out and it’s just me & Princess Monkey Bum. So Isabella and I shared the delicious soup along w/ grilled cheese sandwiches — it was the perfect and most satisfying dinner I’ve had in a long time. Totally healthy and delicious!

Now if only my lazy butt would get on that balance ball life would be a little more balanced, but that’s a whole other story. And in the meantime, Isabella is having a blast bouncing it around my living room and trying to roll on it. At least one of us is working out, right?! Ugh…
