Campbell's Select Harvest Light Soup


Campbell's Select Harvest Light Italian-Style Vegetable Soup is similar to the Pasta Fagioli soups from other makers. It's a mix of tomato, celery, carrots and round noodles.

The can is "no water added" meaning you get the can as a serving. Well technically they claim the can is two servings, but I have my soup as my "main meal" rather than a side dish. So for me the can is one serving.

Usually I eat Progresso Pasta Fagioli which is delicious but very high carb as my comfort soup. The Progresso soup is very rich and thick.

In comparison this Campbell's soup seems "oily" to me, but it's a fairly similar soup. The vegetables in the blend are all tasty if a little squishy.

In terms of nutrition, you ingest 28g carbs per can of which 8g are fiber. That's a good amount of fiber! It's 100 calories, no fats at all (despite the oily feel!) and no cholesterol. There's 480mg of sodium which is a little high. 3g of protein.

In terms of vitamins you get 30% of your vitamin A and trace amounts of other items.

I'm definitely a big fan of soups. They are super easy to make - just pop them in the microwave and you're done. They are full of liquid, which is absolutely necessary for your health no matter what diet you are on. They fill you up and provide a lot of veggies to you in a quick and simple manner. You get a mix of a variety of veggies that you don't often find elsewhere.

Plus you can recycle the entire can so you have no waste!

What if I had a can of this Campbell's soup side by side with the Progresso soup? That's a harder call. I think I've just gotten very used to how Progresso tastes. I would need to train myself to feel the same affection for this one. It seems well worth it to work on that process. The carbs are low, the fiber is high, the Vitamin A is always helpful, and it's tasty.

If you have the Campbell's Light line at your grocery store, definitely stock up on a few. It's the perfect quick meal which will always be very good for you. It's especially great if you're cold!
