My Favorite @Nutrisystem Lunch Choices – #NSNation

Are your cool weather clothes still going to fit after a busy summer of get togethers and backyard BBQ’s?

While the temps are still high in most of the country, the truth is fall is just around the corner, and most of us are going to have to break out those cold weather clothes including skinny jeans, long sleeve tops and sweaters very soon. The big question is if they’re going to fit?!

Since December I’ve lost 49 pounds on Nutrisystem and many of you have been reading the last few months about my journey. I’ve had a few folks who are thinking about starting Nutrisystem or who just signed up who have asked my recommendations for what to order. Over the next couple weeks I’ll be talking about my top choices.

Here are my top lunch picks for Nutrisystem.  Please keep in mind I’m a vegetarian, so my choices my be different that yours.


Fettuccine Alfredo: Very tasty and I’ve been enjoying this one a lot lately. It’s easy to prepare and has a lot of flavor. I do like the sauce thicker, so I usually use a bit less water than recommended, and let it set for a few minutes after cooking to thicken up.


Mexican Tortilla Soup: I love this spicy soup, and it’s great on cool days or when you need a kick of flavor. The corn, beans and tortilla  chips are a great combination. It does overflow in the microwave sometimes when cooking, so stop it part way through and stir, and I usually set it on a plate or paper towel just in case.


Fudge Graham Bars:
These bars are wonderful and great to take for an eat on the run lunch when you don’t have time for a sit down meal. I usually keep a couple in my desk drawer at work for busy days. The chocolate can get melty on warmer days, but they’re great to take with you when the weather is a bit cooler.

Peanut Butter Bars: These lunch bars are also very tasty and great to take on the go!


 Black Beans and Rice: This is also a tasty treat with lots of flavor. I like it with a little bit of seasoned salt and it’s a great cool weather lunch or when you’re looking for something with a lot of taste.
