Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could assist you..
I drink a lot of water and chew a lot of gum, (seriously)...
Just kidding. so far, I simply watched the games and drank soda and decided not to make food part of the game...I had some Nutrisystem chips and veggies (gasp!)..
I would go with the Veggie Slices and FF Ranch and eat all you want. Cucs, Carrots, Peppers, Broccoli, celery - you can make a nice tray and be happy..
Cooking tip par-boil the broccoli then fridge them. It makes them look greener and more appetizing..
I'm sure the "senior members" have more exciting foods.....
Lol!! We do have fun!!.
Sometimes we match the food to the opponents. Like deli when we play New York, taco bar when we play San Diego and of course - Buffalo wings when we play the dreaded Bills..
I don't have TV and used to go to bars. Now I watch a little at the Y..
I do the cardio, outdoor biking 40 minutes, during halftime, ending up at the Y. I check in between each couple sets, on the TV, for the third quarter. Then "treat" myself to a cooldown after I'm all done by watching the fourth quarter. (Instead of jumping on the bike to go home after last lift.).
Redskins not doing that well, anyhow...
I make Buffalo Chicken Bites:.
1/2 lb chicken breast tenderloins - season with some Spicy Mrs. Dash (salt-free) & cook on grill until done..
Chop into bite-size pieces & toss with 1 oz Frank's Red Hot sauce.
Serve on a plate with carrot sticks, celery sticks & 2 Tbsp FF Bleu Cheese in a ramekin..
All told: 294 cal, 2.7g fat, .7g sat, 767mg sodium, 52.7g protein.
Eat em with a fork & it satisfies the buffalo wing jones pretty darn good...
Bungle, that sounds really good! I'm going to have to try that..
No tricks, just suck it up and don't put crap in my mouth..
I orderd the veggie plate at MNF. The table next to me asked, "Is that on the menu?"..
As it turned out, I stuffed myself with carrots dipped in spinach dip I had made with ff sour cream. I counted it as my lunch salad and protein/dairy..
And to be nice (and because I'm intimidated by my friends who poo-poo my diet because they all weigh more than me) I had two buffalo chicken wings. But I didn't dip into the blue cheese dressing. Only 12 games to go plus post season.... sigh.
Just give us an extra 30 minutes exercise today and we'll call it even, deal?..
You got it - it's a nice day - I think a brisk walk around the Common may be called for...
I just BBQ'ed a bunch of peppers, corn, and some onions. I let them cool, and made a low-fat dip with some onions soup mix and some peppers.....They really tasted good, it was sort of a last ditch effort not to hit the bag of chips...
Tried a new dip this time. Low fat cottage cheese mixed with Lipton garlic herb mix. Pretty good. Everyone likes garlic..
We will dip cucumber and carrol 'chips' and also put out some potato chips...
I originally got this recipe from BellaVitaBoy's Tips for Newbies thread. I usually don't use the breadcrumbs, just garlic powder & parmesan. It also is good with cajun seasoning if you want to add a little spice to your life..
3 medium zucchini and whole mushrooms.
1/2 cup of Egg Beaters or other egg substitute.
1 cup freshly grated low-fat Parmesan cheese.
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs, (whole wheat whole grain if you can find it).
Red Pepper flakes, "No Salt" and any of your other Nutrisystem legal seasonings..
Preheat the oven to 350*F..
Thoroughly spray a baking sheet and set aside..
Cut each washed and unpeeled zucchini in half, then each lengthwise into 6 spears..
In a large, shallow bowl, whisk the egg substitute. In a separate bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs and spices and seasonings of your choice..
Dip the mushrooms and spears into the egg mixture, then coat completely in the seasoned bread crumb mixture..
Place the spears on prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot...
