I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could give you an answer..
I made the potato salad for lunch today and had it with a HN hot dog. I love that salad recipe. It really tastes like potato salad...
Here is the recipe:.
Jonies Nutrisystem Potato Salad.
Heres a great recipe from NutriSystem member Jonie in Wilbur, Indiana. She says, With summer approaching, potato salad is a family favorite and I created this recipe so I wouldnt miss out on that delicious picnic favorite. I thinks it's yummy! Add a tossed salad and it's a meal..
Counts as 1 NutriSystem lunch entre + 1 protein serving + free foods.
1 Nutrisystem Cheesy Homestyle Potatoes with Broccoli.
1 T chopped onion.
1 T dill relish.
2 T fat-free mayonnaise.
1 T yellow mustard.
1 boiled egg.
1 T chopped celery.
1. Prepare potatoes as directed on the package and let set while preparing other ingredients.
2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and then add the potatoes..
Note from Jonie: I love warm potato salad, so I eat it that way, but you can prepare it ahead of time and chill it, too...
I see...the boiled egg is the PROTEIN for lunch. How about 1/2 boiled egg and then add another protein (like the hot dog)?..
I make it without the egg and have a couple ounces grilled chicken with it (with a little BBQ sauce sometimes). Or I'll make 2 servings and just use one egg and then still have a little chicken with it...
I only get 1 protein with lunch..
How can you have the cheesey homestyle potatoe entree and the hot dog?.
Do you get more than 1 protein at lunch?.
I really like the potato salad but it makes too much and I miss not having something (like a protein or carb) with it. That's why I was wondering if I could have just half of it and add another 1/2 protein....
Hey, that's a good idea...Does it still taste good without the hard boil egg?..
I make it with 1/4 cup egg beaters cooked in the microwave, then cooled, chopped and added to the potato mixture, and it is great! That way I can still have 1 ff hot dog or a boca burger (minus the bun!) with it!..
Sheila, that sound pretty good..I'll have to try that. Thanks Judy..
That sounds wonderful. I love potato salad. Potatoes are definitely a weakness of mine..
An HN hot dog is 45 calories, 1/2 protein. I don't use a whole egg and I do add celery and sliced radishes when I have them...
I haven't made this in a long time. Thanks for the reminder!..
Wow, and they are only 45 a dog? Must get!..
I made this today for lunch. Divided it in half and had a piece of tilapia for my protein..
Here's and old picture I took when Joni's first shared her recipe, for those that enjoy visuals...
The potato salad idea sounds GREAT - I think I'll give that a try minus the hard-boiled egg. Will add 1 oz. of chopped lean ham (any 1 oz serving of lean meat would work actually) instead and have my green salad as usual to accompany it...
Yum I just made this for my lunch today. This is a great meatless Lenten Friday lunch. It's neat how a couple of diced up vegetables and some condiments can make a small portion of something into a feast...
Make sure you get the 98% (or is it 97%) fat free ones...the regular Hebrew Nationals do not fit the stats...but the reduced fat ones are very good! Try not to have them too often, they are high in sodium...
