A few weeks ago I was doing my weekly grocery shopping and stopped in the soup aisle to pick up some lunch for myself. Working from home, I often eat by myself at my desk and like things that are quick but healthy. For years (since I was on Weight Watchers) I have eaten the various light Progresso soups.
I was excited to see two new soups in the lineup: Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese and Chicken Pot Pie Style. I love a hearty soup and at less than 100 calories per serving (2 Weight Watchers PointsPlus), I had a feeling that these would soon become my favorites. I was right! I’ve been eating them every week for the last few weeks and they have overtaken my previous favorites.
What’s so great about these soups? First, they do not taste like “diet” food. You know how often you see soups with low calorie counts but they do not fill you up? These soups do fill me up. I usually pair them with yogurt, some fruit, and maybe half a sandwich if I have time to make one. I admit that sometimes I eat both servings if I am in a hurry and not having anything with the soup. Even at 200 calories for a really big bowl, I still don’t feel guilty. The second great thing that I love is that they do not taste like your typical canned soup. They actually have nice sized chunks of chicken, bacon, potatoes, etc. You don’t always get that with a canned soup.
