That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably can help you..
Maybe you can use the bisquick and add mini choc chips-they're made by nestle-they're mini so they 1/3 cup can go a looong way!!.
Would that work???? anyone????..
1 Tbsp of the Nestle's mini chips is 70 cals/4g fat.
You can use it for your dinner fat if you'd like to!.
I use Krusteaz's honey and wheat pancake mix, 1/3 cup dry mix, with 1/4 cup water (or DaVinci syrup 0 cals), 1/2 tsp baking powder and 2 Tbsp eggbeaters..
Stats for 1/3 cup.
1 g fat.
5.3 g protein (protein boosted when eggbeaters added)..
I made chocolate pancakes by adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder to the regular Nutrisystem Pancake mix and some Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup to the milk that is required to mix it up. Yummy!!..
I use a few chocolate chips, put them in a chopper and put them in the mix. I don't have a bag handy for stats but a small amount would be a free food...
Thanks for all of the good ideas everyone; this really helps a lot!!! I guess I can have around 1 tsp. of the mini-chips, although I like the idea of using that as my dinner fat..
If you use the bisquick heartsmart - add 1 TBSP of Soy Flour to up the protein. You can also use Maple Grove SF pancake mix (I get it from netrition.com) which is only 100 cal and more protein than Nutrisystem (I think it is 13grams) and the mini chips sound like a wonderful addition..
Here are the Maple Grove stats:.

Thanks Kat; I already order the high protein chocolate pudding from netrition, but it never occured to me they might have pancake mix. About the soy flourdo they sell it by the regular flour?..
They sell whole wheat flour in my grocery store in the organic food aisle...
I couldn't find soy flour in the standard supermarket. I found it in a health food store...
Is that the same protein as the soy flour that she mentioned? I'm not sure my store has an "organic" food aisle, but I guess I could check them all. Just more exercise to log in for the day, right?..
I'm not sure. It's the same one that Christina uses but I can't remember the name and I'm out. My store does carry Krusteaz too..
My store has an aisle where they carry vegetarian, organic, diet foods and that's where I can usually find most of this stuff...
You might want to do what I'm doing and get the maintenance package for a few of the things you like but can't find. They have all sorts of combo's you can get...
Thanks, I might just do that. My store seems to have diet type foods in many aisles...
I'm getting dinners and desserts because it's easier that way..
I don't have a huge problem doing breakfast and lunch on my own. I usually have eggbeaters or pancakes for breakfast and a hot dog or LC sandwich for lunch..
I'm going for 8 more pounds so we'll see...
FYI soy flour has much more protein in it than whole wheat flour.
See link for stats of the organic brand I use.
(click on the flour you are interested in and then view nutritional information)..
Get the sugar free chocolate chips at.
Here is the link to the product.
To be honest, I don't really taste the chocolate chips in the pancake mix all that much. I usually just use a few mini-chocolate chips if I make the chocolate walnut muffins...
I've gotten that one. I don't know what stores they have near you but they sell that one in the Acme Markets around here. The other one that Christina uses, (hodgekins mills? something like that) they sell too. That one I think they have in Blueberry...
Youre very welcome Kristen. It really depends on the grocery store - one of my stores does have it by the regular flour. One has it only by the "diet" section and one has it in both places - but it's a "smaller" bag, I think it's like 2 lbs max. The one I have is from Arrowhead Mills. You might want to check netrition.com or Hodgekin Mills (sp) if you can't find it by you. I really do use it more than I thought I would. I still use the Bisquick Heart Healthy for the family's pancakes most of the time, when I make pancakes for others (since of course I got a BIG box) and always throw a little soy in it - so they get a little extra protein too! And nobody knows...
Thanks again everyone! I have a lot of choices now, which is terrific. I know I could've figured it out on my own if I was armed with the stats at the store, but all of your ideas have really saved me a lot of time, and I am grateful for that...
I haven't tried it yet, but Bob's Red Mill also has an Organic High Fiber Pancake Mix which has 6.3 gms of protein, 130 cal, & 1 gm fat per 1/3 cup. (I haven't found the pancake mix in my local grocery stores yet, but haven't had time to look everywhere so far.).
Also, Bob's makes whey protein concentrate which is a great protein booster.
(1/4 c = 18 gm protein (90 cal) higher than soy flour) and which I did find locally...
Thanks Patti, I wrote it down with all of the other ones suggested. I'm SO happy that I can keep having my chocolate chip pancakes forever!..
I use 1/4 C Bisquick's Heart Healthy & 1 T. Soy flour. I get it at my Super Wal Mart. My King Soopers GS has it too. It's in a small box...
Thanks! I do have a super walmart, but don't usually go there. Never heard of King Soopers, though..
