This week, I lost 0.8 pounds for a total weight loss of 23.8 pounds. Amazing considering I am literally never hungry. Part of that has to do with the fresh foods I add into Nutrisystem. Lately, I’ve received loads of questions how these fresh foods fit into the Nutrisystem lifestyle. (Dad and I decided this is more of a way of life than a diet). I just returned from stocking up at the grocery store, and I wanted to share some of my new staples.
Like I mentioned previously, I love making my protein shakes with almond milk. It boosts protein and counts as one of “power fuels” for the day. Sriracha and Chili Garlic Paste help give foods that kick I crave. Plus, I hear heat in foods can even boost metabolism. Newman’s Own Balsamic has long been a favorite, but his Lite Italian has even less calories and tastes as good – great to shake things up a bit. Laughing Cow Light Cheese now comes in so many great flavors – they are perfect on nut crackers, Wasa or even on some veggies. Speaking of veggies, these Steamers from Green Giant taste indulgent but are only 45 calories a serving. And I always load up on fresh veggies – this doesn’t even come close to how many greens are stocked in my fridge. On Nutrisystem, you can (and are encouraged to) have as many fresh veggies as you’d like. Yum!
Hope that helped shed some light on how fresh foods fit in with the Nutrisystem prepared foods. What are your favorite healthy grocery store staples?
