Your question was: Nutrisystem ideas for lunch and dinner?.
Well, my suggestion would be to keep using the Nutrisystem pancake mix, just have it at lunch or dinner time. Of course, then you'd have to eat a lunch/dinner entree for breakfast, but the lunch bars would be good...
How does the Redi Set Go work? I never heard of it but it looks interesting?.
When you say pockets are you making basically savory pancakes or is it actually a stuffed something like a pita pocket? I'm very curious how this works..
I do like the idea of making sweet cakes for breakfast or dessert. Is this something that is substantially different from using the oven?..
I could use the pancake mix for dinner but I want it for breakfast.
Yes, the redi, set, go cooks from both sides. So I saute my onions and ham (or whatever I want to put inside) then add in my egg beaters and cook. Makes like what you would put in a breakfast burrito. While that is cooking I mix up the pancake mix - I add a bit of water on top of the milk so it spreads easier and isn't quite so thick.
There are several pan inserts - I use the one that is divided just in two. Pour in some pancake mix, over that put half the ham mixture, pour over the pancake mix on top of mixture, repeat on other side - close the lid, and wait to cook!.
Yes, it makes like little pockets that are easy to wrap in foil and take with you, etc. There are so many things you can make with the pancake mix! I really watch my calories, but some ff cheese would be great in the ones I make!.
I am thinking tomorrow I am going to try something sweet - make up some mixture with ff cream cheese for inside - maybe I will mix it with some steamed peaches, cinnamon, splenda (and the cream cheese) for inside. hmmmm....
Hope that answers your question!..
I think the fiber one pancake mix is close- I haven't looked in a long time..
Other than that, I REALLY want on of those thingys now! The commercials were always bad enough- you made me NEED one LOL..
The fiber one pancake mix is close. Slightly higher in calories, but not by much...
LOL I read so many mixed reviews and I figured for $30 I couldn't lose - so I ordered mine from QVC because they have a 30 day money back guarantee! So I knew I could send it back with no problems if I didn't like it! However, I love it! I use it almost every morning! I am thinking up new things I can make with my Nutrisystem food everyday and I even had to order more pancake mix ala carte because I didn't have it when I placed my last order so I didn't order all that many pancakes!.
Thanks for the ideas everyone - I will check out that pancake mix. Is there some way I can trade it for a lunch or dinner or would it just replace the pancake mix once a day?.
If you decide to get one let me know how you like it!..
