Healthy Hacks: Delicious Ways to Mix Up Your Nutrisystem FoodsArticle posted in: Nutrisystem
From pizza to pasta, stew to stir-fries, burgers to breakfast sandwiches and tasty bars, Nutrisystem offers foods to satisfy your every craving.
But your options don’t end there. Nutrisystem not only provides delicious, easy-to-make food options that conveniently fit into your weight loss journey, but you also still get to eat your favorite healthy grocery add-ins. We call them SmartCarbs, PowerFuels, Extras, Free Foods and Vegetables.
These nutritious and delicious ingredients allow you to mix up your weekly menu even more! Here are some healthy hacks to shake up your Nutrisystem meal plan and add even more variety to your day:
1. Sample a New Food
You heard the Nutrisystem Cinnamon Roll is awesome, but you’ve never tried it. Maybe there’s a dessert you’ve been eyeing, or you noticed a brand new chicken dish added to the Nutrisystem menu.
Order a few items from our a la carte store to see how you like them. This shopping option is the perfect way to try different breakfasts, lunches, dinners or snacks to find something new you love. You can use these extra entrees to replace some of your Nutrisystem Flex meals, or buy a bunch to have on hand for later. Our sampler packs are also a great way to try a few new foods without changing up your auto-delivery order too much.
2. Recreate an Old Favorite
This is one of our all-time favorite healthy hacks. Nutrisystem meals and snacks are delicious just the way they are. But if you’re wanting to mix up your meals a bit, check out the Nutrisystem Food Hacks filter in our Recipe section. Here, you’ll find creative and healthy recipes that put a fresh twist on classic Nutrisystem foods.
For example, use our Buttermilk Waffles as “bread” in an awesome Turkey, Apple and Swiss Sandwich recipe. Ready for dessert? Make Chocolate Pudding in a mason jar with Chocolate Nutrisystem Shake Mix and chia seeds.
3. Experiment with add-ins.
Another one of our favorite healthy hacks is the flexibility to create meals on your own. With Flex meals—made from fresh grocery add-ins you get at the supermarket—you have the freedom to choose which SmartCarbs (nutrient-rich carbs), PowerFuels (high quality proteins and healthy fats), all-you-can-eat Vegetables, Free Foods and Extras you include in your dish.
If cheesy eggs are your morning go-to, try adding broccoli and spinach, melting it between a folded whole wheat tortilla and voila! You have a flavorful Breakfast Quesadilla.
4. Stock Up on Shakes.
Chocolate Nutrisystem Shake Mix creates a rich and fudgy drink that’s packed with protein. The vanilla version is sweet and creamy. Both make great grab-and-go options when you want something easy and delicious.
If you have a little extra time, use the shakes as a base to create inspired smoothies flavored with kiwi and vanilla, pineapple and spinach, or chocolate, peanut butter and banana. You can even make smoothie bowls, thick enough to eat with a spoon and sweet enough to satisfy a craving. Find shake and smoothie recipes here! >
