It keeps me going for hours!
Progresso High-Fiber Chicken Tuscany Soup Hits the Spot
This is one of the new high-fiber line that Progresso has recently rolled out, and is a real winner! It has lots of vegetables, chicken, and beans (both Great Northern and Kidney) in a rich herbed chicken stock. Like most Progresso soups, it's the perfect warm comfort food to come home to on a frozen day, or if you are not feeling well. It tastes great, and has good mouth-feel, and sits easily in the stomach. At a PointsPlus value of 6 for the entire can, it is a great meal if you are on Weight Watchers new Points Plus program. As with all Progresso soups, it's easy to make: Pour into a microwave-safe bowl, cover, and heat on high for between two and four minutes.
This is a premium product, as are all Progresso soups, so it will not be the cheapest soup in the market. However, Progresso is the only brand I will buy for eating (I will use the odd store-brand broth for cooking). Between the flavor, the quality, and the fact that they actually have calculated the points value (so far, according to the old program, but that's more than a lot of mainstream products do), I think it's well worth the price, especially if you stock up when there are sales.
And on a day like today, with a temperature of 20 degrees Farenheit, and a windchill making it feel like 10 degrees, thinking of having this lovely, warm soup was just the thing to make the four-block walk home from the bus tolerable.
Tasty, but TONS of beans
My doctor told me that I was probably not getting the amount of fiber I need in my diet, so I started looking at grams of fiber on the label of the soups I was buying. My husband brought me home a case of this Progresso High Fiber Chicken Tuscany soup to beef up my fiber intake so I didn't have to drink as much of that not-so-delicious psyllium powder (yuck).
This is a tasty soup, lots of flavor and nice hunks of chicken. However, it has a TON of beans! Seriously, a whole lot of beans, and I personally love beans. This is sort of overkill, however, for a soup that doesn't say "High Fiber Ton of Beans Tuscany Soup." It was a bit strange because of that. Thankfully it also has a fair amount of vegetables, including carrots, onions, tomatoes, and zucchini. It is a bit much though, still. In fact, I ended up putting a bit of Tabasco sauce in it because I felt like it needed a little kick with all the beans in it. It's still tasty, but be warned, the fiber is coming from the beans; if you don't like beans, you'll hate this.
This tasty soup has 28% of your daily fiber!
I'm always trying to incorporate more fiber into my diet without having to drink fiber powder or swallow a million capsules. I had a coupon for the new Progresso High Fiber soups, so I decided to give them a try.
I decided on **Progresso High Fiber Chicken Tuscany Soup **because the picture on the label shows lots of herbs and veggies and it looked really good. The majority of this soup's ingredients are: chicken, Northern beans, onions, tomatoes, celery, carrots, zucchini and spinach. It also boasts 14 grams of fiber per can, which is 28% of your daily value of fiber. This soup is does not contain any artificial flavors, so that's great too.
The flavor of this soup is good. It has a thick chicken broth base and lots of chicken and veggies. The chicken is lean, white meat chicken, so that's nice. True to the picture on the label, it also has lots of herbs and seasonings which I like. What I don't like about it are all the beans. There are way too many beans in this soup! I understand that that's probably where the majority of the fiber comes from, but I would rather have a little less fiber if that means less beans too.
Since **Progesso High Fiber Chicken Tuscany Soup **is so high in fiber, it is more filling than most canned soups I've eaten. It is also low in calories at 260 calories per can. If you like soup, and are trying to get more fiber in your diet, you might want to give this soup a try. If I could, I would give this soup 3.5 stars instead of 4. It's good, but just *way *too many beans.

Great flavor and very filling
PROGRESSO HIGH FIBER SOUP Chicken Tuscany I am part of an online program called PSST! sponsored by General Mills. Occasionally, they send me free products to try. This soup was one of those products. The ingredients in this soup are chicken broth, Great Northern beans, white meat chicken, and assorted veggies; onions, tomatoes, celery, carrots, zucchini and spinach. It also has other flavorings added. The soup was great tasting, and I liked the way it was seasoned, and the consistency of the broth. It was very filling. It contains 7 grams of fiber per serving (each can is 2 servings) which is 28% of the RDA. It's low fat, only 3 grams of fat, and has no added MSG. The downside, as is with most canned soups, is that it is high in sodium, 690mg per serving.
