About This Item
Top with salsa which is allowed. Thanks in advance for any help or advice! My husband and I use it in the eggs and over salad. Dark chocolate shake is good with a teaspoon of instant decaf coffee, ice cubes and water blended in a small blender. Good luck to everyone who is on Medifast! Thanks to everybody who has sent in recipe suggestions for the site and free eBook.
Top with salsa which is allowed. Add toco seasoning to cooking beef. Top salad mixture with beef and enjoy. I make a wonderful Toco Salad using Thousand Island dressing.
I wonder if you could add a little fat free Thousand Island to the salsa? I has some left in the freezer. I like Kraft Free Zesty Italian. I also use it as a baste for chicken. Anyone have that recipe? My husband has lost about a hundred miles and I have helped. The pie sounds great. I have several recipes and I am perfected a couple of these, but he is eager for a new treat.
Thank you, Thank you!! I put about 2 cups of water in a four cup pyrex measure, add 1 pk. This also helps get in some more of my oz of daily water: If you use the stick blender to make frozen soft-serve it will double in volume. The stick blender is a big deal with this eating plan. Thanks for the idea- my soft serve never comes out right but I have a few packets left — now I have a new way to try them!
I am on day 2 and tried the peach iced tea, I do not like it at all. Any ideas to make it taste better? I took the peach tea and drank it warm, it reminds me of a peach cobbler juice warm out of the oven, just no peaches or dough!!
I started Medifast 5 weeks ago after deciding my weight loss from gastric bypass had stopped and I need to loss more! I lost lbs from the bypass and maintained the loss for 10 years, but need to lose about more….. Being a chemist means my kitchen often looks like a lab when making some of my meals!
I like to make up a lot of shakes and puddings using different flavorings and freeze them. Irish cream- Dutch Choc. Can be frozen in sealed plastic glass for later…take out and let sit for 1 hr. Butterscotch — 1 pkg. Remove from freezer 1 hour before serving and it is like eating a pudding pop!!! Where do you find Walden Farms. I live in a smallish town and have not found it.
We also find Walden Farms items at Fred Meyer in our town. I have also found a few Walden Farms items at a Super Walmart.
The only place I can find the Marshmallow dip, which we add a spoonful to our shakes to make it thicker, is at Fred Meyer. I think you may also be able to order these items online thru Walden Farms.
Does walden farms count as a condiment or a healthy fat if it is fat and carb and everything free?? They also have Italian and Ranch sprays. This is also my favorite salad dressing. Aloha from Michael and Lorelei on Maui!!!! Michael has just lost an amazing 54lbs. But check back often on the site because we will have more videos and blogs coming up…All of our posts over the last year can be found on facebook on Lorelei Williams..
I have been on Medifast for 8 weeks and have lost 21 lbs. I was getting Hungary for good old fashioned hamburger casserole. I made my family the draditional pasta casserole and here is what I did for me. It was great and took care of my craving.
Add all ingredient together in medium fry pan. Cook until broccoli is tender. Add 1pkg tofu pasta. Cook until heated through. Dark chocolate shake is good with a teaspoon of instant decaf coffee, ice cubes and water blended in a small blender.
Crusty Chicken I rolled the new Medifast chese pizza bites in the bag before I opened it. I used 4 oz of chicken that I dipped in one beaten egg. Then I dipped the chicken in the pizza crumbs.
I sprayed the pan with Pam and cooked for 3 minutes per side. I threw away the extra egg, but put the few crumbs left on top while cooking. I ate this with a serving of canned green beans as a contrast to the spicy chicken. I have only been on medifast 11 days and am very happy with m loss of 11 pds. I will be checking hee often for ideas.
I have been on MF for a month and love it. Anyone has a similiar experience or thoughts on how to make it better? This is a great site. I need some kind of recipe for turkey burgers, of course without the bun.
I just have to say thank you to everyone here. But this website made me feel so much better. I hear and hope it gets easier with time! But now I have some great ideas on what to do with the oatmeal and tons of other stuff!
I am almost done with my second week of Medifast and I have to say, so far so good! I am happy I found this website with so many great ways to make the food more satisfying!! I found the chocolate chip pancakes to be pretty bad….
I add a few walnuts to my pancakes and just a tiny drizzle of honey obviously try not to do that too often but it does make it taste better … YUMMM! I too hated the chocolate chip pancakes but the walnuts made them taste much better… Just a small amount though becuase of the increase in calories and fat. Thanks for all the good ideas as I am just starting out and am having a difficult time enjoying the taste of many of the meals, as is. Any suggestions for when I have that chip craving?
Lisa, have you tried Kale chips? Wash the Kale, pull the leaves from the stem and tear into bite-size pieces. Dry with paper towels and put on baking pan in single layer. Spray with Butter Pam and sprinkle with Mrs. Dash or spice of your choice. Bake at degrees for 15 minutes.
This gets a crunchy texture and Kale is sooo good for you. I love it that we r all in this together. I am only on day 6 but I have lost 13 lbs and I love all the recipies and support on this site.
Thanks for the ideas everyone and keep em conning! Im sure I will have some to share eventually too. My hubby and I started 1 week ago, and of course he has lost 8 lbs and I have lost 3 lbs. One of our combined favs are Southwest eggs made as omelet with the Vegetarian sloppy joe as filler. We split it our course, and have a tsp of salsa on top.
I am seeking out other combos such as this so please post what else you all are doing! Brand new to this Medifast thing—safely made it to Day 5 without cheating.
My tips, so far, for any newbies are: Literally gagged them down with 20oz of water!! What is up with those things? Love the recipes on here…feel like this is pretty easy! Sarah 84 days until Spring Break! I dip the honey mustard pretzels in various mustards. My favorite is a deli style horseradish mustard.
Hi Everyone, I have been on Medifast for a week now and I lost 7 lbs! It was hard at first but am getting use to it. I am glad to be able to have ideas on how to use the Medifast packets to make something different to eat.
Good luck to everyone who is on Medifast! The smell is also horrendous. Any recipe ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
I add the following ingredients to the eggs: Makes all the difference in the world! Best advice I can give is to cook on the stove in a small frying pan MUCH better that when you cook in the microwave. You provide dinner meal and pick each day off their snack suggestions. Very structure yet flexible enough to eat out or eat a meal with family ect. The good and the bad. The breakfast and snacks are wonderful. The shakes are good.
Found a problem with the lunches and dinners. Mostly you loose weight because the food for these meals is not very good. Had to throw out a few because one taste or two and I couldn't eat them. Do know the pizza is good but must order separately from meal kit. I wound up ordering individual foods from Nutrisystem direct and from Walmart.
Peggers, February 19, A lot of snack bars and cerials just not for me. This was advertised as 21 Meals. A snack is not a meal. A study from Saint Louis University found that folks who ate eggs for breakfast consumed fewer calories throughout the day than those who had a bagel. Adding vegetables to a scramble boosts its volume and fiber content for few extra calories an egg has 78, and a cup of spinach just 7.
The 20 Best Foods to Eat for Breakfast. Broth-based bean soups, in particular, contain a hefty dose of fiber and resistant starch—a good carb that slows the release of sugar into the bloodstream—to make that full feeling really stick. All this for a measly calories per cup.
Resist the cracker pack on the side in favor of a bigger soup helping. Beans are starchy, satisfying and caloric enough on their own, Rolls says. Throw lentils, black-eyed peas or kidney or navy beans into a vinegar-based salad.
Harvard researchers examined the eating habits of , people for 20 years and found that yogurt was the single best food for shedding pounds: Over time, people who downed more of the protein-packed stuff lost pounds without trying.
Meanwhile, a Nestlé Nutrition Institute study review found that consuming dairy proteins increases satiety, reduces food intake and keeps blood sugar steady. Top yogurt with fibrous foods like raspberries 4 grams of fiber per half cup or a cereal such as Kashi Go Lean Crisp Cinnamon Crumble 9 grams per three quarters of a cup.
Apples are one of the few fruits that contain pectin, which naturally slows digestion and promotes a feeling of fullness, according to a study in Gastroenterology.
In fact, people who ate an apple as part of a meal felt more satiated and ate less than those who consumed a calorically equivalent amount of juice and applesauce. That means you can eat lots of this low-energy-density, high-satiety fruit and avoid feeling deprived while losing weight, adds Roberts. Add apple chunks to oatmeal or salad, or slices to a turkey-on-whole-wheat sandwich. This movie-night fave is a low-energy-density food—for 90 calories, you could eat 3 cups of air-popped corn but just a quarter cup of potato chips.
