I LOVE your motivation of a trip to Vegas. That is a great idea. Where the heck is everyone in this group???? I just started a couple weeks ago and had a few days out of town that weren't exactly successful. I'm ready to get going with this and see what I can do! Great recipes!!!

With so many choices these days, I don't do a lot of manipulating with the foods. Perhaps my favorite go-to is the chocolate chip pancake. I toss it in my shaker container and pour in a splash of sugar free syrup and then the balance of water, along with a dash of cinnamon. Nuke it for 1 minute and eat as a muffin.

I also eat some of the oatmeals cooked as "cakes" instead of prepared as oatmeal.

Valerie- after three months you probably don't want another- right?? I had two in one day once. Two liter bottles were on sale this week for 99 cents so, I stocked up. What is your favorite recipe now?

I have to confess; I did MF in 1989 in preparation for my wedding. Back then, all they had were chocolate and vanilla shakes!

I LIVED on diet root beer blended with vanilla shake mix for three months, five times a day!

It worked; I was 155 pounds when I got married. That's still my goal weight, so I've got a way to go...

I make my oatmeal the way I used to make regular oatmeal. I use a 2 cup bowl that I spray to keep it from boiling over in the microwave.

1/2 - 2/3 cup Silk unsweetened vanilla almond milk (1/2 - 2/3 condiment)
1 Tbsp PB2 (powdered peanut butter, 1/2 optional snack)
MF Apple Cinnamon or Maple oatmeal


Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, repeat until the desired consistency.

I can't do anything about my genes, but I can sure do something about my jeans!

Does anyone use th 5-7oz. of ground turkey or other meat? How do you prepare it? I was thinking of mixing the meat with 1/2tsp of barbeque sauce and then heating it in the oven.

What about the canned Tuna. How do you prepare it to fit the requirements of the medifast diet?

Here is another one....Sounds yummy.. I have been really wanting to create something with the Spaghetti Squash for a pasta replacement.


Spaghetti Squash with Fresh Tomato-Basil Sauce

This recipe tastes like the essence of summer. Make sure to use really ripe tomatoes and fresh basil for the best flavor.

Ingredients

2 1/4 pound(s) tomato(es), ripe heirloom or beefsteak, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 5 1/2 cups)
2 Tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
1 1/4 tsp minced garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup(s) basil, fresh, sliced
1/2 tsp kosher salt, or more to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste
2 1/2 pound(s) raw spaghetti squash

Instructions
In a large bowl, toss together tomatoes, oil, garlic, basil, salt and pepper; let stand, tossing occasionally, until tomatoes release their juices and mixture is quite juicy, about 10 to 15 minutes.


Meanwhile, cut spaghetti squash in half and scoop out seeds; place squash in a covered microwave-safe dish. Cook on high power until strands of squash separate when flesh is scraped with a fork, about 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can roast squash for about 20 minutes in oven.

Scrape spaghetti squash from peel with a fork to form strands; add to bowl with tomatoes and toss to coat. Yields about 2 cups per serving.

Notes
Chunks of fresh mozzarella or freshly grated Parmesan cheese would be a delicious addition to this meal. Again, I am new to MF and not sure if or how to incorporate this yet.

I just "borrowed" this from the WW website. Haven't done it yet but it sounded awesome.

Butternut Squash Fries:

Ingredients

3 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray
1 pound(s) butternut squash, peeled, seeded, long “neck” cut into sixteen 3/4-inch-thick sticks*
1 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp chili powder, or to taste (optional)

Instructions
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Arrange squash fries on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and chili powder; liberally coat with cooking spray.

Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 14 to 18 minutes. Yields 4 fries per serving. (per the WW points) don't know for MF. I am new to MF
Notes
*Start with a large squash. You will end up using about 1 lb of squash and have the “bulb” of the squash left over.

Any hard winter squash will work in this recipe.

I do Chicken Caesar Salad. You're allowed a little dressing (leave it on the side if you prefer) and you can add all kinds of seasonings to your chicken, and grill it.

I like the muffin recipe I posted before but I'm out of eggs now...

Made some new muffins a few minutes ago and I love them!

Here's what I used (you could sub any flavors you like; this is a combo I had on hand):

1 pack oatmeal (I used peach)
1 pack shake (I used the dreaded cherry-pomegranate)
5 T sugar-free syrup (you could use water but the syrup flavor/sweetness is worth it to me)
3 T egg whites (I've got a carton that seems to last forever)
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking powder

Mix well and pour into Pam-sprayed muffin pan; I made four muffins. Bake 14 minutes at 350° (until only a moist crumb or two comes out on a toothpick). Two muffins per serving!

I make the brown sugar oatmeal with less water than it calls for, then microwave as normal. Then, I add the MF sugar free syrup on top, and a splash of milk. It is almost like a smooshy bread like texture. So good.

Hi Tndaysiegirl,

Saw your message about oatmeal. I'm not a fan of it prepared as directed. Try dispensing in a bowl then stirring in boiling water slowly until it's a cookie dough consistency. The texture ends up being light and fluffy. It's also seems a bit sweeter. (Now it's one of my favorite meals.)

Miss your morning muffin? Try these; they're surprisingly good!

I hate the MF eggs and came across this recipe last night. I made 3 muffins first, to try them and just made 9 to take on vacation as portable (alternative to bars) meals.

This recipe makes 9 muffins; each muffin counts as one MF meal.

3 packages oatmeal (any flavor; I've used apple cinnamon and oatmeal)
3 packages eggs
3 packages shakes or pudding (I used vanilla shakes)
3 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups water (I used Cinnamon/Brown Sugar Torani sugar free syrup)

Mix all. Spray muffin tin with Pam (use a little extra, since these can stick a bit).
Bake 350° for 20 minutes (17 minutes in my oven; I'd rather err on the under-done side).

Enjoy!


Valerie

I like to add some chili powder, about a teaspoon of ketchup and 1/2 tsp mustard to the chili after it is made. It is really good.
Also when we combine the medifast meals does that count as one (Meal)serving or two?

I use 3/4 C cold water and the mix (I really like the dark chocolate), and add 4 cubes of ice, 2 drops of vanilla extract, and 1 packet of equal. I also use the bullet, and it is delicious.

I tried it with the full cup of water and didn't like the consistency.

I made my version of Medifast Salisbury Steak today. It turned out pretty good. I let my 14 year old try it and she said not bad. I used Boca burgers prepared as directed. Then I used 1/4 cup of chicken broth in a non stick pan and sauteed 1/2 cup of fresh mushrooms until they shunk. Then I added 1 tbsp of cream cheese and used another 1/4 cup of broth little at a time to get a gravy like consistency. Once it reduced some I poured on top of my Boca burgers.

Gotta give a big thumbs down on the mustard greens. Maybe I picked a bad recipe but it was really awful. DH ate it anyway. He is so supportive.

Going to try mustard greens tonight. Have no clue about them. Doing recipe search for some low fat way to prepare them.

I will order a sample of the Crab soup next time. Was a little leary about it. Thanks for sharing your info.

Today I made the crab soup on the stove and I chopped up two celery sticks and threw them in and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. I add a dash of salt when it was done, and it was actually quite good! As with the MF eggs, I think cooking on the stove is key with MF foods.

Thanks for the tips. I switched bowls and got a stoneware one with a top and now prepare it 10-15 minutes before I'm actually suppposed to eat so it can "soak" and it's helped immensely. I saw the recepie for chinese soup, but I don't have hot mustard or wasabi. I've continued to use green chile, if 1/2 c. of jalapeno is a green serving, I'm sure 1 T of green chile doesn't make a dent. I also tried tabasco and that was yummy too.

One other thing I've found out, a lot of the South Beach Diet Phase 1 and some Phase 2 recipes work as L&G meals! You just have to look through the ingredients to make sure, since they allow dairy, but since it's also a low/good carb diet, it fits very well. I've made some of the meat and veggie recipes and they are yummy!

Monica,
If you haven't already seen this tip, add soy sauce and hot mustard to your chicken noodle for an oriental twist. I didn't have hot mustard on time so used wasabi. It was good too.

Pizza

Dough for crust: 1 pkg MF eggs, 1 pkg MF multigrain snack crackers, and 2-3T of water. Crush the crackers and mix with eggs and water. spread on pizza plate. bake at 375 until the crust is firm.
add 2T marinara sauce and an ounce of fat free mozarella. return to oven until the cheese melts. Sorry I can't remember the total time I had it in the oven when I did this recipe.
This counts as a snack, a medifast meal, a condiment, and part of your lean portion. The crust is more the consistency of flatbread, but it tastes pretty good. When you buy the sauce try to find the one with the lowest amount of carbs you can. I put the extra sace in ice cube trays. 1T per slot. Then when it was frozen I popped the marinara cubes out, put them in another container and kept them in the freezer. That way you have premeaseured portions.

I got the recipe off of a website. It you use a search engine and put in medifast recipes, there are several sites.

Have fun and enjoy!

Hi there welcome to the team -

For soups, I agree I have never been a huge fan of those. But I do mine in my crock pot and add extra spices, and let them soak. When I used to do my soups right before eating, it just didnt have much of a taste.

Whether you do the soup in a crock pot or stove top or just before eating in the microwave, I would recommend the soaking process. This way at least the noddles and everything else is not still dehydrated.

I'm new to MF, so I didn't know you could do so many things to make this "not boring"! I can't wait to look through them and try some. Thanks!

On another note, please tell me some of the other soups are good. I ordered the variety pack to start and it only came with chicken noodle and chicken and wild rice... neither I'm finding very good. It takes more salt and pepper than I'd like to use, and I put some green chile and finally it was satisfying.

Hello everyone,

Here is a receipe collection another MF member put together years ago (2006, 2007) and I wanted to share this with you. These were receipes created by other MF members and compiled into one library.

There are two ways to view the receipes, either on the web or to a word document. I would recommend saving the word document in case for some reason the webpage goes away.
