That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could help you..
I am not a picky eater. I really like them all..
I like and try all the dinners..
I like the hot soups for lunch and soft scones/muffins for breakfast..
So I can't really pick something to recommend. You have to try them for yourself..
Remember everyone's tastes are different...
The first time I tried the mac and cheese I was diappointed, but I learned to like it. I like to add a bunch of veggies to it for a more robust casserole. I use steamed or sauteed bell peppers and tomatoes. Sometimes, I use salsa for more kick..
My favorite dinner was one I was afraid to try at first - the mushroom risotto. I add a little chicken broth and sauteed mushrooms and onions and it is my very favorite!!! (Without the chicken broth, it seemed sticky to me.).
If you browse the "food tips" forums, you'll get a lot of great creative ideas to cook the food more to your individual taste. Enjoy!! The plan works..
You will find stuff you don't like when you are trying out the meals. It is different for everyone because we have different likes/dislikes for food. My best advice is to only order one of an item until you have tried it so you don't end up with a bunch of stuff you don't like...
For dinners, I personally like the pizza (the Italian Herb and the Thick Crust), the burger and the chicken breasts (made into a sandwich either with lite mayo and tomatoes or with a little bbq sauce for a bbq chicken sandwich). These are all very simple and they taste pretty good. For the mac and cheese (I like the mac and cheese with beef) I put in a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese (garlic & herb) when you pour in the water. Let it all set for about 20 minutes, mix it up and it's creamier..
Everyone does have their own tastes that is for sure (oh yeah, the lasagna is pretty good also) but these dinners are pretty "up front" in their tastes..
Haven't tried the mac-n-chz yet... I have found that most of the food is actually pretty good, considering that it is diet food... I mean we all know it won't taste like restaurant food but it is good...
Mushroom Risotto, Chilli, Southwestern Wrap, Buffalo Chicken Wrap, Fajitas, Sloppy Joes.
I add things to most of my food to kick it up a notch.. Veggies or hot sauce... I think the risotto is the only food I eat as is..
I tried the hamburger patty today, and it ROCKED! I was so surprised, because it didn't look like it was going to be good! I sauteed an onion and topped it with that, and it was really tasty..
I liked the Italian herb pizza, too, and added some fresh basil to that..
I've only been onNutrisystemfor a week, but I've actually liked everything, so far...
The hamburger patty is very versitle. I sometimes break it up to make tacos!..
