Issues with some of the food
I really have to be a lot more discerning with the menus. Some of the food really do a number on my stomach. For one, before I started JC, I was pretty much dairy free. Dairy plays a number on me. While I've been taking my pills to help digest the dairy in JC foods, some of them I just cannot have....the corn chowder played a number on me last night. Oy! Also, a lot of the foods that are not frozen bother me. Plus the kung pao beef. For a few years I've not purchased anything packaged to eat. I usually eat whole foods (no pun intended but I usually shop there lol) and eat no preservatives. Lately my stomach is not happy.
Hopefully I will be able to eliminate all the soups for lunch, the kung pao beef, mesquite chicken and most of the unfrozen meals. I'm doing so well and I don't want to stop but my stomach is miserable!
Does anyone else have this issue?
Kung Pao Beef
I just devoured my delicious lunch of JC Kung Pao Beef to which I added a serving of steamed cauliflower rice. I mixed it all up and topped it off with a little sriracha sauce. It was delicious and very filling.
I'm interested in how YOU volumize the Kung Pao Beef entree.
I feel like the food are small in portions and not too healthy
I just want to point out that Jenny Craig does not offer a lot of whole grains. Instead of offering lasagna made with white enriched flour, why not offer lasagna made with whole grain flour?
Also, for example they have things such as cinnamon rolls, chocolate muffins, etc. foods that are considered highly addictive to us people trying to lose weight, yet we're only able to eat a tiny portion of those things. Thus of course it makes it difficult for us to stick to the plan when we will just crave more.
We're paying hundreds of dollars for these food and I think we deserve something that is more satisfying with larger portions and healthier options instead. What do you guys think?
Food's I wish were on Jenny's
So there are a few food items I wish Jenny Craig would make. Cause I miss them, and am still kinda nervous to try to make them on my own. I keep thinking I will mess up and make them too fattening or not get the portions right and mess up my plan.
Chicken Tenders (I know its a weird one to want but I keep craving it)
Chocolate Chip Cookies or their own ice cream.
A new cake flavor would be nice, cheesecake or regular.
Shrimp Fried Rice or Chicken fried rice!
Thai food would be awesome
Also a soft pretzel for a snack would be awesome. I guess I could do with a new salty snack
Also they need to keep the Taco Chips on the menu.
Today for lunch I enjoyed the Classic Cheeseburger. I wanted to volumize with lettuce, a slice of heirloom tomato, pickle slices, onion, etc. but did not have any tomatoes besides tiny grape tomatoes. SO instead I sautéed some yellow onion slices and sliced white mushrooms. I sweated them down and then added a little garlic powder and black pepper. I piled that all on my burger and it was amazing. Super good! I can't wait to order another burger next week!
I really am enjoying the food. I think JC has improved the food to go along with the higher prices!
I'm very thankful I have kept up my Premier member "dues" of either $39 or $49 a year (its been so long I don't remember) that 30% discount sure does help!
