Chicken is a protein staple for many of us trying to lose weight or live a healthier lifestyle. I would bet serious money that the vast majority of us have groaned over the idea of yet another piece of grilled chicken. This is why I love Hunter's Chicken, cacciatore in Italian. At its most basic, Hunter's Chicken is chicken braised in wine and vegetables with tomatoes, onions, peppers and mushrooms being the most common ingredients. But, you can feel free to vary these to your own taste.

This version and uses thinly sliced red peppers along with, onions, mushrooms, and red wine. It created a delicious sweet and earthy flavor, with just a touch of heat from the garlic and red pepper flakes. What I love is that you get all those flavors and a filling dish for only 271calories with 6 grams of fat, 34grams of protein, 16 grams of carbohydrate and 4 grams of fiber. This is absolutely a dish you can eat without guilt.

Along the lines of guilt-free food, Progresso asked me to try two of their new soups and have offered a nice giveaway to go along with it. I must admit that Nancy, Quinn and I are fans of Progresso. Their light soups are a constant in our pantry because they are flavorful without being loaded with fat. Their new "Heart Healthy" Low Sodium soups don't disappoint. If sodium is a concern, they are absolutely worth giving a try.

If you'd like to try these for free and get a cool soup cup and an Everlast exercise ball with a DVD, leave a comment on my blogspot post. A winner will be randomly selected at 8 a.m. Central on Monday Dec. 27, just in time for your New Year's resolution!

Let's eat!

We seldom eat canned soup but when we do it is Progresso. Besides being a healthier food, it tastes good, as well. Our favorite? Minestroni.

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
