Progresso Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

I like soup especially here in Chicago in the winter time. Nothing is better to warm you up from the inside out and if it is low in calories, even better! Did you know that Progresso Soup can help curb your hunger, and it is available in 40 delicious flavors that have 100 calories or less? With hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Soup varieties offer a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. I always feel like Progresso Soup is the “adult” soup on the market. It is filling. It is good and very flavorful. It is just an added plus that it is low in calories.

Now, to help kick off a new outlook on the New Year, Progresso is excited to announce the return of the “Souper You™ Debut” contest! From January 3rd through March 16th, you and your readers can visit Progresso on Facebook to enter for the chance to win a full makeover in New York City. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 20th-22nd. The prize includes roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money. Once the 10 finalists are announced, you can visit Progresso on Facebook from March 30th through April 13th to vote for your favorite.

You can also visit the Facebook page to download a coupon for $1.00 off four (4) cans of Progresso Soup and to check out makeover videos provided by MyStyle.com and the Style Network. Be sure to also “Follow” Progresso on Twitter to keep up with the latest news from Progresso.

Since I have enjoyed the soup so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get a Progresso “Souper You Debut” gift pack that includes a VIP coupon for a free can of Progresso soup, as well as a yoga mat, water bottle, set of aerobic bands, sport headband and two sport wristbands.

Chef Boyardee Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is shelly aka allysmama. Congrats!

Did you know that Chef Boyardee has new whole grain products and a new website they have just launched called Club Mum?  I didn’t either till recently.

Lead by a panel of four mom bloggers and launched by Chef Boyardee, Club Mum is a new online community for moms to share experiences, ideas and tips around how to get the “good stuff” in their kids. The website will include editorial and video content on a broad range of topics, such as getting more vegetables into kids’ diets, keeping kids active during winter weather, packing nutritious lunches and encouraging philanthropy among the whole family.

Their new whole grain product launch goes hand in hand with this.    Now, I already loved that a can of Chef Boyardee counts as a serving of vegetables.  However, the whole grain aspect just makes it all the better.  I recently tried the Whole Grain Lasagna.  I’ll be honest — I couldn’t tell the difference between the whole grain and the regular lasagna.  They tasted exactly the same!  If you like Chef Boyardee products, you will love their new whole grain products.

Since my family and I enjoyed these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to win a Chef Boyardee Prize Pack.  In it is a lunch box and 3 of the Chef Boyardee products!  Here’s what you need to do:

Head over to the Chef Boyardee site and tell me which product you’d like to try!

Full Circle: Part 2

As promised, here are a few more of the Full Circle products you should check out:

The vegetable brush Full Circle offers is pretty cool looking. It is part bamboo handle and part natural and recycled bristles. The blend in tough enough to remove dirt. However, it won’t bruise your fruit or vegetables.  Not only is it pretty cute looking, but it also can double as a nail brush!

Another of my favorite Full Circle products has to be the loofah sponge.  It is a sponge on one side and a scrubber on the other.  It works on pretty much everything!  It expends to twice it’s size when it’s wet and is completely biodegradable.  The cellulose is naturally absorbent and resists bacteria too.
This arch shaped sponge will rock your kitchen. It dries super fast and will keep the nasty bacteria off your countertops.  It is naturally absorbent and is the perfect shape to scoop crumbs off your countertop of even your kitchen table.  It air dries naturally and is 100% biodegradable.  It also can be cleaned in the dishwasher (which I love!) or by boiling in water.

Ever try and reuse a paper towel?  We all know how well that usually turns out.  Instead, conserve natural resources and try out these cellulose clothes.  They can be used over and over and over again.  They are naturally absorbent and resists bacteria.  They are awesome.  They don’t rip when wet, and they work quite well (we did a through testing here).  You can freshen them in the dishwasher or by boiling in hot water.

Last but not least, you have the Full Circle dish towels. Can I tell you how much I love these? They are the softest dishtowels I’ve ever owned.  They are 70% bamboo (which makes these so soft and absorbent) and 30% cotton (which makes them durable and comfy).  They are super absorbent and quick drying too.  I’ve even used them to dry off our slide and swings outside after an evening rain.  Soaked everything right up, and the kids could have their fun.

I’ve grown to really like all of the Full Circle products.  I love that I’m helping keep garbage out of the landfills when I use their products.  I love that I’m making the world a better place for my kids.  I also love how useful and trendy their products are — you’ll happily leave them out on your counters!
