Why I Switched from Weight Watchers to Medifast

What Makes Nutrisystem Different

Access Denied
The "snack" ideas do resonate, since one of the things I most appreciate about Medifast is the frequency of the food intake. Happy to hear you liked it — really appreciate the feedback. I normally turn up my nose at anything that involves pre-packaged meals too, but for some reason I feel that I need more structure than WW can provide. For example, unlike Alanna, I can't stand the chocolate shakes. A great green side is roasted cauliflower. Surely all those skinny runners looked just like me when they started!

Lean and Green meals are an essential part of the Medifast plan. But, unless you are an experienced cook it can be difficult to come up with ideas. This list of recipes will get you started! You can use the pre-packaged Medifast foods to make all kinds of delicious foods including muffins and pancakes! Are you getting tired of Dutch Chocolate shakes? The basic Medifast shakes are the jumping-off point for these delicious recipes.

These recipes will jazz up the Medifast soups in a variety of different ways. I am continuing to update the collection of recipes. Thanks to everybody who has sent in recipe suggestions for the site and free eBook. Also, be sure to check my collection of Medifast Recipes Videos. They are pretty cool, and I will be adding to this collection as well. Mix and let sit for 5 minutes as it will thicken.

Spoon on to cookie sheet that has been sprayed with pam or you can use parchment paper as well. You be the judge, bake til cookies are brown on top. Enjoy 3 cookies a day due to the fat content of walnuts. IF you skip walnuts feel free to count 2 cookies as one medifast meal. I assume you mean bacon salt. You can buy it on line through Amazon or http: My husband and I use it in the eggs and over salad.

I was super pleased to find that medifast not only has brownies, but pancake mix as well! My mind went straight to baking with those. I still love the brownies and the pancakes on their own, but I enjoy making muffins with them to switch it up. I have also done the same recipe above but added a packet of the medifast brownie mix and a couple more tbsp water- makes 6- 7 mini muffins that are more like chocolate choco chip muffins.

I know this may not be very creative to make muffins out of the pancakes, however the texture is perfect muffin texture! Just started Medifast and am frustrated with the mug I purchased and how much I am losing my soup as it overflows.

Any ways to avoid this? Thanks for stopping by. The soup is tricky. I made a huge mess in the microwave. I use a huge bowl and keep an eye on it, particularly towards the end. I stop and restart the microwave a few times to keep it from going everywhere.

The soaking allows for some of the items to soften like the chili and stew and just makes everything else taste better. I found that by using an electric kettle or a regular tea kettle on the stovetop and boiling water separately, rather than using the microwave, it works MUCH better!

Simply put the contents of the soup packet into the mug, then add the water after it boils, stir, and let it seep for a couple of minutes. Works perfectly every time!

Same thing for the hot drinks like the Cocoa and the Chai Latte…. Here is what I do with my soup as I was tired of half of it spilling out in the microwave. If you mix your soup about an hour ahead and let it sit, it will absorb the water it needs to plump out all the goodies. Then you only have to heat it a minute in the microwave and it is ready to go. You may have seen this already, but I learned this from one of the other websites, and it has helped me greatly with the soups!

I put in a bit of hot water and stir to make a paste, then add the rest of the water — seems to work much better. They are easily had on Amazon and there are some Ebay sellers that have the ones that have markings for ounces and cup graduations. That is all I use to make my warm Medifast products. I put a dash of cajun spive and cilantro and voila! Cooking at lower heat setting for longs works great for the oatmeals and cappacinno as well. Enjoy and thanks for these postings. I bought a cool touch microwave bowl you can get it on line for about 9 dollars plus tax.

It is the perfect size and makes it easy to cook the soup and then eat from the same bowl without burning your fingers. It comes like bread or muffin. I add 1 ounce of cheese toast it and enjoy! Hello, I just cook the soup about a min and a half or less and let it sit for a few minutes, depending on the microwave, their suggested time can be too long.

Just cook things less time and let hem sit a few minutes. If you add the water to your soup and let sit in fridge for two hours when you have your snack then all you have to do is heat to desired temp. You can get these anywhere and many of you may already have one. Works well for the oatmeal and the soup for me. I also let the soup soak for a few minutes too before microwaving. The first day I had boiled over soup and oatmeal in my microwave. So now about an hour before we are going to eat I put the package of powder and the water in a pot and let it soak.

Then when ready just cook it up on the stove. Better flavor, and better cooking control. Oatmeal and soup taste a whole lot better. I make my soup in a 4 cup measuring cup…. Saves allot of cleanup. We simmer it on the stove the night before so we can just warm it up in the microwave the next day when we need it. Less mess and tastes better! I purchased a Sistema microwave container at TJ Maxx that has a little pressure release vent on the top.

The best two ways u have made the soup are 1. Pouring the mix into a thermos and adding boiling water and stirring well. I do this when I have my first meal and its perfect no hard bits by the time I have it as my third or fourth. I got one of those crockpot lunch warmers. I mix my soup up and plug it in when I get to work and perfect by lunch. Would like to make shakes using scrambled eggs also.

Thought this might work also with other flavors like banana or strawberry to make flavored egg creams. Yes…I made it today.

All the Chocolate chips stayed in the bottom…so kinda weird. Can anyone help me with the pancakes? I think they are pretty gross, can they be used to make anything else? Add cinimon it makes it tast like french toast. I also coat my fry pan with either olive oil or flax oil. Hi Susan, I too hated the pancakes but now I love them made this way not sure if this is cheating at all but it beats throwing the packets out, right?

I cook this on a stove top skillet as one large pancake. I can eat this every day for breakfast. Please try, hope you like it. I add butter buds to the oatmeal and sprinkle it on the pancake before the syrup. Makes me think I have the real thing. Thanks for all the suggestions. You have all given me new hope I can make his meals more tasty!

I am very encouraged with the results, and will continue. I have tried everything in the 4wk kit, and seem to like it all…even the oatmeal! However, I have 2 boxes of soft serve mint and mango and I just cannot seem to like it even a little. Is there a trick or a recipe that someone has to get me thru these boxes? My next order will be custom, so I can eliminate it all together!

But until then I need your help!! I was just talking to my friend about this today. Find it in the soup aisle, in a jar and is like a paste.

I mix my stew with water and 1 tsp. I mix all my soups with water and let sit overnight in fridge, since they are freeze dried, they need some time to absorb the liquid. Hi — today is my first day using my new medifast products….. I saw a recipe for toco salad using low fat ground beef or ground turkey. Mix lettuce, tomato, gr onion. 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. They are passionate about creating healthy and delicious meal delivery plans that are perfectly suited for weight loss.
