My Nutrisystem Journey Week 8 "How's the food?"

One of the first questions I get from family and friends about Nutrisystem is "How's the food?"

Seriously, if I was compiling a list of Top 10 Things People Ask Me About Nutrisystem, "How's the food" would rank 1st. 

With over 150 foods to choose from, Nutrisystem offers a wide variety of foods to choose from and you can customize your meals to your tastebuds. 

Pantry Items ship in a box and frozen items ship in a cooler with dry ice.  Sidebar:  My neighbor stops by each month and ask for my coolers. He uses them at deer camp.  Go figure.

My first Nutrisystem order was so random.  Since, at the time, I rarely ate breakfast, I struggled with the breakfast choices.  I mean would Nutrisystem Homestyle Pancakes taste anything like Hubby's Sunday morning pancakes?  Would the Buttermilk Waffle have that crisp like my homemade waffles?  Would the Turkey Ham and Cheese Omelet fill me up?

Well, the pancakes don't taste anything like Hubby's, the waffle doesn't have that crisp like mine but the Turkey Ham and Cheese Omelet is absolutely delicious.  It is ONE of my fave breakfast items.  I also love the muffins...EVERY SINGLE MUFFIN.  The Blueberry, Caramel Apple, Double Chocolate and the Cinnamon Streusel.  Luv, luv, luv-luv, luv!
Zap it in the microwave for about 10 secs. to make it even tastier!

The 2nd month, I opted for more pantry items vs. frozen items.  I had a lot of traveling scheduled during February and found the lunch bars to be the perfect grab 'n go meal choice.  I chose Chocolate Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate Caramel, Fudge Graham and Trail Mix bars for lunch.

Each bar is full of fiber and protein and very filling and if I had to choose a favorite, it would have to be the Peanut Butter, no the Double Chocolate Caramel, no the Fudge Graham, wayment the Trail Mix bar... no, I can't do it, they're all so tasty.

Dinner, well dinner is the one meal we eat together so I chose items similar to what was on my family menu.  If I'm making chicken Alfredo for the family, I'm dining on a Nutrisystem Chicken Alfredo dinner.  If I'm making chicken enchiladas for the family, I'm dining on Nutrisystem Chicken Enchiladas with homemade salsa or salsa from my favorite Mexican restaurant. 
Lotsa Salsa
I have salsa with almost every meal.  It's my Nutrisystem fave freebie.
Plus I eat my veggies with each meal.  Lots of veggies. My plate is piled high with veggies like cucumbers, zucchini, onions, scallions, various tomatoes and peppers which add a pop of colorful flavor.

When asked my thoughts on the Nutrisystem foods, my answer is this with so many tasty choices you're sure to find something you like.  Try new foods, experiment a little and flavor your weight loss plan to your liking.  It took a couple of tries but I've found the foods I like and it would seem as if there's no possible way you'd lose weight but if you stick to the plan, the pounds will come off.  It's working for me and I LOVE IT!!!
