We split it our course, and have a tsp of salsa on top. I am seeking out other combos such as this so please post what else you all are doing! Brand new to this Medifast thing—safely made it to Day 5 without cheating. My tips, so far, for any newbies are: Literally gagged them down with 20oz of water!! What is up with those things?

Sarah 84 days until Spring Break! I dip the honey mustard pretzels in various mustards. My favorite is a deli style horseradish mustard. Hi Everyone, I have been on Medifast for a week now and I lost 7 lbs! It was hard at first but am getting use to it. I am glad to be able to have ideas on how to use the Medifast packets to make something different to eat.

Good luck to everyone who is on Medifast! The smell is also horrendous. Any recipe ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! I add the following ingredients to the eggs: Makes all the difference in the world!

Best advice I can give is to cook on the stove in a small frying pan MUCH better that when you cook in the microwave. Added some onion powder which also helped. Mix eggs with water and let them soak for a while.

Take out the veggies and cook the eggs; then add the veggies back in. Some salsa helps, too. I add a half serving of egg beaters, try the southwestern. You can also add chopped red pepper and onion to just medifast serving. Always do scrambled, never microwave, use Pam and scramble in fry pan. Hi, I know this is a bit late, but I use Mrs. Add it before you put it in the microwave. This is my 5th day on MF. I did the eggs according to directions, added 1 tbsp.

Drop this bag into a pot of boiling water and boil for 15 minutes. You can use the salsa on top of the cooked omelet. If you are craving for a pasta, there is a shirataki noodle that is 20 calories, no-oodle noodle and miracle noodle with no calories.

That can be your free food. You can also use the tomato soup for a sauce, diced some tomatoes and blend it and add ground meat. I am soooo excited to get started on this program. Since I am going to be in my first week, can I use these variations right away or do I need to wait until my body starts adjusting?

I know my TSFL coach told me to try to stick to the program very strictly to see the desired results. Thanks in advance for any help or advice! Just finished week 3 and have lost 10 lbs. I am a bit of a food snob, so this has been difficult.

I am not a fan of the oatmeal or soups, at all…. I did accidentally find that the cappucino is better cold than hot. I filled my shaker with water to make a shake and acidentally added a cappucino instead of a shake mix. Its a little quirky and foamy after shaking at first…. When I fixed it hot, half of it foamed and overflowed and the fiber was very noticable and gave it a sludgy consistency.

Any suggestions for the oatmeal or soups? The consistency of the oatmeal was awful and the taste not much better.

I like chicken and veg stir fry or a big veg omlette for lean and green. I use the egg beaters and it is a big serving of eggs. The chicken and veggie omlette filled up a regular dinner plate. Many fast food places have a grilled chx salad with mixed greens, cucumber and a few tomatoes.

Just watch out for added bacon and cheese and be sure to use you own dressing or read the dressing labels before using it…the majority are not good for you. I also have made a home-ade chili with ground turkey or chicken, low salt canned diced tomato, onion, green chilis or bell pepper, a little water and a bit of taco seasoning or add your own seasoning. Would also be good with frozen veg meat substitute crumbles…just be sure to check labels for other carb filler additives and carb counts.

I added cocoa powder and coffee for a great treat. Oz today he talked about teas that help with wt. He specifically mentioned Pu-ehr tea that shrinks fat cells, he recommended 2 cups in the morning, White tea, 2 cups at lunch that boosts metabolism, and Chickweed tea, 1 cup with early dinner for late night appetite suppression.

He also talked about coconut palm sugar that regulates glycemic index without highs and lows that cause cravings and fat storage. It is used 1: Used my kruerig using my StarBucks house Blend and made a cup of coffee. I let it cool to room temp and then mixed it with one Truvia and a cappucino packet with the mixer jar with the ball in it. No weird texture no protein lumps! Any suggestion for Green sides? My mom suggested a coliflower garlic mash, like mashed patatos and it was great.

Any help would be great thanks! Preheat oven to Coat cauliflower in olive oil or pam Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic Place on cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper as liner Cook about minutes. Take out and coat with the balsamic vinegar add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese if you want Put back on sheet and cook about another 10 minutes until dry. I love the chai latte. The trick to making the hot drinks is to heat the water separately first.

Put the mix into a mug. Add about a Tablespoon of the heated water and stir into a paste with a whisk. Once it is mixed well add the rest of the water. You can also add the sugar free coffee syrups to improve the flavor!

Try making a homemade marinara sauce. Pomi tomatoes nothing added , celery, onion, garlic, spices and just about any green veggie cut very small in a food processor for a filler.

If you want, make it a meat sauce by adding browned ground turkey. You are allowed a little parmesean to make it feel more authentic. I thought we couldnt use canned tomatoes. If so then what is a serving size of marinara sauce and what does it count as? There are some wonderful recipes in there. Comes out sort of like a shake. You can also use a bit of salt to taste it brings out the flavors. After reading all these recipe suggestions, I look forward to giving this diet a try.

I use the home made frozen biscuits in section with frozen pizzas etc. The flaky ones become too gooey and the butter ones too greasy.

The buttermilk biscuits work great. I agree with other replied that you need to press them and use smaller pieces. My first time making chicken and dumplins ever and they turned out Awesome!!!

Very flavorful and everyone loved it. Made this exactly as directed and it turned out perfectly. I used the cheapest canned Kroger buttermilk biscuits. It even was great as a left over the next day. It does not mention any seasonings…. Add your own seasonings!! That is the fun thing about recipes…. Thank you for this recipe. My dumplings turned out dough-y as well. That was a bummer because I like flaky dumplings. When you created the recipe, were you able to get the dumplings flaky, or are they supposed to be dough-y?

I have a great dumpling recipe in my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. I also added a couple of tablespoons of poultry seasoning to the pot when I put the chicken in. I also put the chicken breasts in whole, then shredded them when they were done because my husband likes the chicken shredded. We got the cheap 4 pack of biscuits and I used 2. I admit they were a bit doughy like others said, but I like it that way.

I also used 3 cans of broth and 2 cans of cream of mushroom. The taste was amazing. Even my very picky 4 year and 6 year old boys ate it. Will make this again! Trying this tonite but with my own twist. Anxious to see how it turns out. This is better done by stove top. Add 4 pack cans of Pillsbury biscuits. Tear them up in pieces and put them in the broth. Stir then add small carton of whipping cream.

Salt and pepper and mix and serve. I get so many complements on this recipe. Anyway thats how to make them without any complications. Takes about 15 minutes after chicken is boiled. Just a suggestion from my kitchen to yours…. I followed the recipe exactly. I used the Grands Jr. My biscuits started dissolving almost as soon as I put them in the crockpot. It turned into big, wet, sticky blob. I cook on stove top 2 32 ounce container of chicken broth 2 23 ounce can of cream of chicken soup 8 cans of homestyle biscuits cut in half and then into three pieces 4 hard boiled eggs.

Kind of late to comment…but some styles of the Grands biscuits have chunks of butter throughout which may have contributed to the dissolving. The only problem was that when my husband went back for seconds the dumplings had dissolved! If anyone has any idea to why or how this happened let me know. I pulled them into pieces and pressed them with my fingers before putting them in the broth.

The biscuits are still doughy even though they were in the pot for an xtra 15 minutes after the first half hour. I did exactly as the recipe says. Maybe its because I used the grands biscuits?

A couple of other people have said the same thing. I used Grands biscuits. Just tear them into smaller pieces. I also added some onion powder and garlic powder and black pepper. I always use biscuits ad m rumblings, but have never made it in a crock pot. I followed the directions, but rumblings were not done. Let them cook just 20 min longer and they melted into the both.

For those who said they want more seasoning you can just buy one box of regular broth snd one box of Swanson Tuscan starter. Also, if your in a pinch and want something super easy you can use 2 large cabs of chicken and then you only have to let it heat up for 30 min before you add the biscuits.

Fresh is better but it is a good last minute sterns time and still turns out pretty tasty. Made this yesterday on a cold and dreary day. It was a huge hit! I did add a can of cream of chicken soup, as well as some oregano, and a few other spices I threw in the pot. The Cambells cream of chicken with herbs is even better in this dish.

I still use the same amount of broth; however, I add I can of the cream of chicken with herbs and also a stick of butter.
