Got a question, hope someone can answer... Does anyone know the formula to figure out Nutrisystem points? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: I love them! I can stick my fresh veggies in & nuke for 1.5 minutes & yum! This lets me have just enough veggies for my dinner serving, when the hubby wants something else..

I have tried cabbage, celery, fresh mushrooms & some bean sprouts in them, with either a little lemon or just a trace of teryaki marinade for flavor. (It's the flavor I miss most on NS).

Tonight I made pasta primavera that way. Hubby was making spaghetti for himself & the bird, so I swiped a little. I used an Nutrisystem burger patty (reconstituted & crumbled), then added one tomato, a couple slices of mushrooms, a few rings of black olives & 2 oz of Prego (60 to 70 calories). Steamed it for 1.5 minutes & poured it over my sad little pile of spaghetti..

Wow! was that good & there was too much to eat!.

Someone tell me how bad an indulgence it really was, so I know if it's safe to repeat...

Comment #2

Thanks for the information AmLabs, I never heard of them before..

No pans to wash is a wonderful thing!.


Comment #3

I've never heard of them either. Where do you find them? Just in with all the other Zip lock bags? I love my steamer but do get tired of washing all the parts to it..


Comment #4

I've tried them and they are great. I steamed a salmon filet for 3 minutes and it came out so delicious. Also good for fresh green beans and any other vegetables...

Comment #5

I had never heard of them either. Thanks for posting about them. I am going to pick some up - they sound perfect for my lifestyle!..

Comment #7

These are great bags? You can find them in the supermarket in the frozen vegetable section. They have an assortment of vegetables to choose from...

Comment #8

You can check them out at.

The first time I saw them was on TV & went to the website & ordered some. But I have recently started seeing them in the grocery stores & Target..

It is really nice to steam the veggies, throw them on the plate & then throw away the bag. No other clean up needed. Yay!!!..

Comment #9

I love these tips - thanks for the info - thanks for the website - can't wait to try them....


Comment #10

I'm a complete convert to the Ziplock Steamer Bags. I'd cook everything in them if I could. So easy, clean-up is a snap, and the food comes out great. Especially vegetables because you can spray them with ICBINB, throw in seasonings/spices, and pop the whole thing in the microwave. Kudos to whomever invented them...

Comment #11

Thanks so much for the info. I have seen them at Publix on the aisle with other baggies and wraps and wanted to try them. A small box was under $4. Think I will get them next time I shop. Thanks so much !..

Comment #12

I bought them, but haven't tried them yet. Thanks for the info!.

What is ICBINB???..

Comment #13

I don't know how I got that stupid thing on my message. Was trying to get.

The ticker on it. Worked once, but it must have been dumb luck because when I changed it, it hasn't happened since!!..

Shelf Life 101.

On that site is neato!..

Comment #15

Thanks for sharing. I will go get me some!..

Comment #16

ICBINB = I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. The spray. It gives a butter flavor with a few spritzes & doesn't mess up the Nutrisystem plan. People use them in very creative ways around here...

Comment #17

I know these bags sound great, but there are a lot of concerns about cooking items in plastic, especially in the microwave as the plastic can leech chemicals- these have not yet been proven to be cancer-causing, but it is something to consider and most of the chemicals that leech from plastic mimic hormones..

I know it can be a pain to steam veggies on the stove but it may be much healthier in the long run. I love my bamboo steamer, which is a bamboo basket you can put on top of a very small amount of water in a saute pan- it's quick and easy and as far as I know, no chemicals leech from it..

Just a thought..

Might be helpful to read this:.

1. I recently heard media reports that plastic products contain a chemical that can encourage prostate cancer. Do SC Johnsons plastic products contain BPA (bisphenol A)?.

A recent study conducted and published by the University of Cincinnati found that the estrogen-like chemical BPA (bisphenol A) has been shown to encourage the growth of a specific category of prostate cancer cells. BPA is commonly used in the manufacture of certain plastic products, such as food-can coatings, milk-container liners, food containers, and water-supply pipes. As a result, media have been reporting on this study and the fact that this chemical is commonly found in plastic food storage containers..

SC Johnson does not use BPA in it's plastic products, Ziploc Brand bags and containers, and Saran brand wraps..

SC Johnson is a leader in providing high-quality products. All of it's products are extensively evaluated for toxicity and safety and comply withand often even exceedapplicable quality and safety regulations..

2. I have read an email that warned consumers about the alleged dangers of using Ziploc products in the microwave. Is this information true?.

In 2002, we became aware of an email that was being widely circulated, which warned consumers about the alleged dangers of using plastics in the microwave. This email claimed that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body, thereby increasing the risk of producing cancerous cells. We researched these claims and it is clear that the information is misleading, and unnecessarily alarms consumers..

Saran and Ziploc products are 100% dioxin free..

You also should be aware that dioxins can be formed only when chlorine is combined with extremely high temperatures, such as 1,500F, which even the most powerful consumer microwave ovens are unable to produce..

Our Saran and Ziploc products can be used with confidence when label directions are followed. All Saran Wraps, Ziploc Containers and microwaveable Ziploc Brand bags meet the safety requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for temperatures associated with defrosting and reheating food in microwave ovens, as well as room, refrigerator, and freezer temperatures..

Like all Ziploc Brand products, Zip n Steam bags are dioxin free. Additionally, they are specially designed for microwave use and meet the safety requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for temperatures associated with cooking food in the microwave when label directions are followed..

Please help us alleviate consumers concerns and share these facts with those who forwarded this misleading e-mail to you, and to whom you may have sent it. Thank you for giving us a chance to set the record straight..
