Hungry Girl Today: 09.20.07

WEEKLY WEIGH-IN

We slurped (and chewed a little when necessary) the new Weight Watchers
endorsed Progresso Light Soups... and now we're telling ALL!


Overall Notes & Observations...

Each variety has a POINTS® value of 0* per serving, but a POINTS® value
of 2* for the entire can (still a major bargain!).

Many of these soups are similar to some Progresso classics, but without any
meat. Toss a few ounces of your favorite meat, seafood or veggie-friendly
protein (like tofu or soy crumbles) into these soups, and you can easily
turn 'em into a "complete" meal.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that they're all "vegetable" soups -- each of these
soups tastes very different!

Heads Up! Though they're ALL called "vegetable" soup, only the Italian-Style
Vegetable is vegetarian. The others contain beef or chicken stock.



SAVORY VEGETABLE BARLEY

PER SERVING (1 cup): 60 calories, 0g fat, 740mg sodium, 14g carbs, 4g
fiber, 3g sugars, 2g protein = POINTS® value 0*

What the heck is it? Beef broth with celery, tomatoes, onions, carrots, green
beans, and barley.

What does it taste like? This soup has a nice tomato-y, beefy flavor with lots
of garlic, but it's a bit light on the barley. Not bad.

What does it remind us of? Beef barley soup (sans beef).

Overall Score: 7. Pretty good. We'd eat it again.



ITALIAN-STYLE VEGETABLE

PER SERVING (1 cup): 60 calories, 0g fat, 820mg sodium, 14g carbs, 4g
fiber, 4g sugars, 2g protein = POINTS® value 0*

What the heck is it? Veggie base with tomatoes, celery, green beans, carrots,
peas, penne pasta, and spinach (the penne was a nice surprise since it
wasn’t advertised as a pasta soup!).

What does it taste like? Minestrone soup. In fact, we're wondering why they
didn’t just call it that.

Overall Score: 9. Great soup. And remember, this is the only one that
vegetarians can eat.



VEGETABLE AND NOODLE

PER SERVING (1 cup): 60 calories, 0.5g fat, 840mg sodium, 13g carbs, 4g
fiber, 2g sugars, 2g protein = POINTS® value 0*

What the heck is it? Chicken broth packed with celery, carrots, green beans,
corn, noodles, peas, and lots of Italian flavorings & spices.

What does it taste like? It's exactly like chicken noodle soup without the
chicken pieces! If you love chicken noodle soup, you'll flip for this stuff. DEE-
LISH!

What does it remind us of? Chicken noodle soup. Doy.

Overall Score: 10. Woohoo! Great stuff and a new HG staple!



HOMESTYLE VEGETABLE AND RICE

PER SERVING (1 cup): 60 calories, 0g fat, 830mg sodium, 14g carbs, 4g
fiber, 2g sugars, 2g protein = POINTS® value 0*

What the heck is it? Chicken broth with celery, carrots, green beans, white
and wild rice, and red peppers.

What does it taste like? Hmmm -- this one has a very strong rosemary & wild
rice flavor. It's a bit overpowering actually.

What does it remind us of? Chicken and wild rice soup -- without the chicken
and with a little too much herb flavor.

Overall Score: 6.5. Our least favorite of the bunch, though we would still buy
it if they were out of all the other flavors.



SOUTHWESTERN-STYLE VEGETABLE

PER SERVING (1 cup): 60 calories, 0g fat, 840mg sodium, 12g carbs, 4g
fiber, 3g sugars, 3g protein = POINTS® value 0*

What the heck is it? Chicken broth with celery, tomato, carrots, green & red
peppers, corn, black beans, and Mexican spices.

What does it taste like? It tastes like a Mexican fiesta in a bowl -- delicious,
chunky soup with a spicy little kick!

What does it remind us of? Taco soup -- without the gobs of fatty ground
beef.

Overall Score: 10. AWE-SOME!!! Can't wait to have it again, but this time
with some shredded chicken. Yum!
