Better Than BBQ Nutrisystem Foods:
Helpful hint: Getting this picnic to your plate is as easy as clicking the Nutrisystem food, image or link in the caption!
Your way: Sandwich this juicy burger between a halved whole grain roll, top it with a slice of tomato, a pickle, some romaine lettuce and a touch of your favorite condiment.
Your way: Hold the mayo, and instead mash up a tablespoon of avocado to spread on the chicken. For one Extra, you get the creaminess you want, perfectly complementing the chicken’s smoky taste (with healthy unsaturated fat)!
Your way: If you like your food spicy, sprinkle on red pepper flakes. Or add a dash of oregano for more Italian flavor. Herbs and spices are a “free” food you can eat without restriction, but can make a world of a difference in the pleasure reaped from your plate.
Your way: Instead of the usual creamy coleslaw, try making a low-calorie, low-fat version with vinegar-based dressing. Besides balsamic, vinegars are a free food on Nutrisystem. If you’ve tried the Spicy Peanut Slaw in the Recipes section of The Leaf, you’re already a bit familiar with this process.
Your way: Take this Nutrisystem meal to the next level by adding your favorite veggies. Fresh or cooked veggies broaden the range of flavors in your meal, add nutrients and you can have as much as you want. Triple the size of your mac with red peppers, onions, whatever your creative heart desires!
Your way: Add fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries to bring an extra sundae-like element to your bowl. You’ll get more nutrients, fiber and juicy flavor and a cup of mixed berries only counts as a SmartCarb on Nutrisystem.
Your way: Enjoy this lovely frozen treat with a dose of the real thing. One medium orange counts as a SmartCarb on Nutrisystem and bursts with juicy flavor to complement your Orange Cream Bar. You’ll also up your fiber for the day with this pairing. Pro tip: the Nutrisystem menu also offers you a Frozen Fudge Bar, when you’re hankering for the flavor of chocolate, too.
