The Crazy Suburban Mom: The Nutrisystem Program is about variety!

The Nutrisystem Program is about variety!

Being on Nutrisystem is about learning a new way to eat, finding better options, discovering healthy things I love and eating them all!  

I wanted to share a few of things I eat regularly and I might start posting a recipe or two.

I love Shirataki Noodles and eat them (almost) every day.  The House Foods  brand is easiest to find because  several area grocery stores carry them but  I visit an Asian Market when possible to find 'regular' Shirataki Noodles for a variety of reasons (If anyone one is interested in a Shirataki Post, let me know).  If I I can't get to one, I buy the Tofu Shirataki noodles.

These  are the best add-in!  They are pretty much all fiber so very filling, have few (or no) calories and I like the chewy texture.  It's not like western noodle.


 
There is some prep involved in these because they have to be rinsed and boiled.  They don't smell great straight out of the package but that goes away.  I'll admit the first time I opened a package it went  right down the garbage disposal.  

I'd heard the flavor described as 'unique'.  That is kind.  But I've got that whole process covered now.






A tablespoon of these Hormel.com bacon crumbles have all the flavor of bacon (because that's all that's in there) and just twenty-five calories.  These are wonderful on salads but GREAT! thrown in a pan with a scant teaspoon of oil and then tossed with cooked veggies.  The bacon flavors the oil but adds almost no calories.  

Del Monte Fruit Chiller tubes (just the tubes, not the cups)


Mmmm, these are fun tubes of delicious, frosty, strawberry heat-wave relief  disguised as a 55 calorie fruit serving.

Mmmm, again!   I love the Dole Fruit in Sugar Free Gel cups.  60 calories in these and a serving of fruit.  I have one in my fridge and three back-ups in the cupboard.

 I just got this last night and haven't tried it yet; got to freeze the bananas first. But I can't wait to try my Yonanas out.


The theory is, it makes a creamy, ice cream-like frozen concoction out of just nanners.  But you can add other stuff to get a variety of flavors.  This afternoon I bought a metric-monkey butt ton of nanners in anticipation for a the coming Yonanathon.

Those frozen fruit CUPS are terrible and you can't even eat them once they are frozen because they are hard as a rock!

I'm back to journaling my food and Chris', it's helping.
