Nutrisystem Foods That Are Fun to Make and Eat

You may notice I’ve stopped giving the daily recap of every single meal I eat. It just became too much to keep track of. Instead, from time to time I’ll post here about some especially good Nutrisystem Foods I come across or some cool tricks I’ve discovered in my Nutrisystem travels.

In today’s post, I’ll focus on Nutrisystem foods that are as fun to make as they are to eat. I’ve already talked about the wickedly awesome “science experiment” Nutrisystem foods like the amazing expando-mashed potatoes. Today, I’ll talk about foods that go great with whole wheat wraps.

The first step is to go grocery shopping and buy a package of whole wheat wraps. I got this from BJs.

The first food I want to show you is the Chicken Fahitas for dinner. Opening the red pouch, you see a dry mix. You pour it into a bowl and “just add boiling water”. At first it doesn’t look all that promising.

Stir well, and stick it in the microwave and you’ll see an amazing transformation. This is what it looks like out of the microwave and on a wrap:

For my next magic trick, I’m going to show you the “broiled patty”. This is one where you unwrap the pouch and find what looks like a hockey puck in the middle of a plastic tray.

I’m going to do a cool cross-over with my other blog, IndoorGardener.Org. In that blog, I’m growing my own lettuce indoors using the Amazing Aerogarden, which is a Nutrisystem dieter’s best friend because you can have freshly grown vegetables and herbs right in your own kitchen. Here, I’m cutting some fresh lettuce leaves to put on my burger.
