Hello! This blog is being discontinued. With my NEW weight loss journey on the horizon, I felt it was only right to start with a brand new home. I hope to see you there!


Progresso Soups Review, Gift Pack Give-Away & NYC Makeover Contest!

A common theme in my "grocery store adventures" is soup, specifically Progresso. That's why I was totally game when asked to provide a review and make some exciting announcements!

Progresso Soups Review
Convenient, guilt-free and delicious would easily be my consensus of Progresso brand canned soups and it's multitude of varieties.  With healthy and filling beans, veggies, grains, and noodles it's a fab component to my weight management journey. I generally grab one for lunch (a corporate girl, whisking away from my desk is a rarity) or for dinner when in chill mode. I love how they don't break my daily calorie bank either ... some with only 100!

My Progresso favs: Light Southwest Vegetable (pictured), Light Chicken Vegetable Rotini, Light Beef Pot Roast, Light Chicken and Dumplings, Light Italian Style Vegetable ...
