All of my bars taste like raisins. I like raisins... but not all of the time.... The only bar thay does not have this taste is the pb. I also cannot handle chicken right now... a weird funky, almost metally taste...

Maybe my taste buds are changing again?.

Does anyone have a good marinade for chicken that they use all of the time?..

I use seal sama but I havent been able to find it anywhere else than netrition. Its good stuff though...

Comment #1

Maybe you have a raisin stuck under your tongue.

My mom and I use Caribbean Jerk, all different brands. It's pretty high calorie-wise so you can't use a lot, but the flavor is great...

Comment #2

I have two salad dressings I use as marinades;.

Wish Bone Romano Basil & Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger..

That sesame ginger is damn good stuff!.

With the raisins/metal thing... Are you by chance taking some antibiotics, or any sulfa drugs? When I take antibiotics, my mouth tastes metally, and everything I eat tastes the same...

Comment #3

My favorite is measured in 1 part 3 part and 6 part - for instance.... teaspoons would be:.

1 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning.

3 tsp Soy Sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos.

6 tsp (2 TBL) Olive Oil.

You can marinade just a few minutes or over night.

This amount would do 4 breasts pretty easily..

I can't wait to hear what others suggest!..

Do you have ketosis mouth? That can leave leave a sweet and/or metallic taste in your mouth...

Comment #5

What about the lemon crunch or caramel bars? they aren't raisiny at all. or ketosis mouth..

For chicken marinade-.

3 boneless chicken breasts.

2 Tbsp light soy sauce.

1 garlic clove, pressed or minced.

1 tsp brown sugar substitute.

1 tsp ginger paste or 1/2 tsp ground ginger.

1 Tbsp olive oil.

Mix marinade, put in ziploc with chicken. Marinate overnite or for at least 4 hours..

Remove from bag, discard marinade, grill or pan sear till cooked thru. Weigh 7 ounces, give the rest to your husband (that's what I do!)..

Comment #6

Yes, because the marinade is being absorbed by the meat. However, I have no idea how much is being absorbed and how many condiments to count it as. I just read it on the Nutrisystem board before and they weren't clear about the amount of condiments...

Comment #7

Thanks for all of the suggestions! And maybe it is a keotosis mouth... it's gross... but I am only noticing it with the bars and the meats......

Comment #8

Salamida's State Fair Spiedie Sauce. Its tangy. I like it on both my meat and vegetables. I just used it in the crock pot the other day with a pork roast and it was fabulous. The Chicken Barbeque Sauce is also good, but it has a little more calories, fats, and carbs, AND you definitely have to marinade for 24 hours for full flavor as they suggest..


I buy mine at the local Walmart...

Comment #9

To me, metally mouth means ketosis..

While it can be a bummer, it's also a blessing.

Hope it gets better, it seems that it was sporadic for me, I believe I maintained ketosis, but the "metally" taste, came and went..

You might trying increasing your water intake a bit too. Dan..
