There’s no question that reviews are a place where many turn to in order to make informed decisions about what they buy—and it’s no different with Nutrisystem foods. Many of our customers read through reviews before deciding whether or not to purchase a certain food that we offer. Of course, some of our foods tend to get more reviews than others—and those underrated meals are sometimes overlooked simply because they haven’t been reviewed as often. But that’s not to say they’re not excellent choices. In fact, some of the least reviewed, underrated meals we have, have still gotten very high ratings.

Here are 11 of the most underrated meals from Nutrisystem that deserve a try (you won’t be sorry!):
