    Servings: 5 total servings Per serving: 1 cup = 1 serving Exchanges per serving = 1 vegetable, ½ protein, ½ fat Ingredients: 1 medium head of cauliflower, rinsed (about 24 oz.) 1 tablespoon sesame oil 2 egg whites 1 large egg Pinch of salt Cooking spray ½ small onion, diced fine 2 garlic cloves, minced ½ cup frozen peas and carrots 5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce, or more to taste Instructions: Rinse, then remove the tough stem and core of the cauliflower. Let the remaining cauliflower dry completely. Coarsely chop into florets, then place half in a food processor and pulse to create small pieces with the texture of rice or couscous. Don’t overprocess, or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower. Combine egg and egg whites in a small bowl and beat with a fork. Season with salt and set aside. Heat a large pan or wok over medium heat and spray with cooking oil. Add the sesame oil and sauté onions, garlic, scallion whites, peas and carrots, about 3-4 minutes, or until soft. Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the cauliflower “rice” to the wok or pan with soy sauce. Mix, cover and cook approximately 5-6 minutes stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside, but tender on the inside. Create small divot in vegetables to scramble the eggs. Slowly begin to mix into the rest of stir-fry until fully cooked. Remove from heat and mix in scallion greens. Enjoy a bowl of cauliflower fried rice!

    If you’re considering weight loss, you may have the best results by following a structured program like Jenny Craig that provides dedicated support throughout your journey. Research shows that having one-on-one support can make all the difference: A recent study showed that those who followed structured weight loss programs with personalized support were more likely to lose weight and keep it off.1 We hope you find these weight loss tips useful! Here’s what our members (and their coaches!) had to say: Find your “why” Sue My coach Meaghan said, "Just do it for you!" after I listed all of the reasons I wanted to lose weight. She pushed me to dig deeper and is truly happy when I lose weight! Karen My coach Mare advised, “You have to be persistent and determined. You must keep your “why” front and center and vision clear.” Also, my husband has been ill. Her advice was I must be strong and healthy to be his advocate. I am finding this to be true. Empower yourself to change your life Nat The best advice my coach ever gave me was never to be discouraged, no matter what. Every ounce counts! This is a life change, not a momentary change. That forever stayed with me and motivated me for the rest of my journey and helped me to succeed and continue to succeed throughout my weight loss journey. ❤️ Christine The best advice she ever gave me was the Christine of the past is not the Christine of today. I have the power to change my life and make it everything I’ve always dreamed of! Your past has no power over your future. Kimberly She keeps reminding me that it’s in me to do this 🙌🏽 “You’re doing it!” Love my JC Laura! 💙 Matthew Never stop learning. There is always room to grow! Luce The best advice I got from my coach is to be honest with myself!! 🙌 Practice mindfulness and celebrate your wins Natalie Pay attention to how you feel when you make good food choices and also to all of the non-scale victories! Michele The best advice my JC coach gave to me is we keep moving forward. Even if it does not reflect on the scale, sometimes the non-scale victories mean even more. 💜 Marcy Michelle kept me grounded and told me, “This is a journey; enjoy it while you can.” I wanted to lose 20 pounds for my daughter’s wedding, and I found myself getting in a rush about dropping the pounds. After Michelle told me it’s a journey, I realized like many things in life, one needs to be mindful of what they’re doing, and not just turn the page. I took her advice, and it helped me through the weight loss, but other important events as well! Thanks, Michelle and JC! Sarah The best advice was to celebrate every victory, no matter how small. And that I’ve got this. ❤️ Corey One day at a time ... Rome wasn’t built in a day! Francesca My coach, Jill, told me to celebrate every ounce I lost, no matter how small. A minus on the scale is a minus, and that’s awesome! Her encouragement got me towards my goal, and my life has changed forever! Jenny Craig was the best decision I ever made! Be kind to yourself Jenny Be kind to yourself and take it one day, one meal at a time 💕 Heather My consultant told me to be gentle with myself and to give myself grace. If I fall, to muster the strength to get back up and continue. Michele It is the fact that my consultant Gail has been understanding. My father just passed away, and I went from doing very well on the program to not eating enough when he was sick, to overeating. She was not hard on me and said I just suffered a big loss and to go easy on myself, but to pick up as soon as I can. Just knowing she was not pressuring or judging me is everything. She really cares about her customers! Marlene My coworker said to take small steps and that they will add up. Steps to walk around the office. Steps to making better food choices. Steps to being kinder to myself. Try healthy food hacks Nequi The best advice or plan of action that was given to me after weeks of fluttering around the same weight range was to shake things up with my menu. Meaning for me to drink the shakes daily, eat salads daily, and to increase my water intake as much as I can (comfortably). Angie The best advice my consultant gave me was to plan ahead when dining out — decide what you are going to eat and then order first. Then you will not be tempted to change your mind by what others order. Mandy The best advice was to take it one meal at a time and PLAN ahead. I had many parties to go to that I would have never survived had I not taken her advice, planned ahead, and ate a little before I went. It kept me from overeating and made me mindful of my plan. Margaret Treat your body like a well-functioning machine. Every once in a while, you can give it a boost with a treat! I thought, how true ... sometimes we treat our cars better than we treat ourselves. We wouldn't put anything in it that would impede its top performance ... don't our bodies deserve the same maintenance? Sara Treat your food like a prescription for your health! Just like you would for a medication. This resonated with me to my core! Holly I'm only on my second week, but my coach has already given me a great tip that has helped me already. I know it’s going to benefit me in the future: She encouraged me to take the food out of the containers and put it on a plate. This will get you used to proper portion sizes. I can see it already! It is also more attractive on the plate. Work the program, and the program will work for you Mike The best advice my coach gave me was to follow the menu, eat all my food, stay hydrated and get some activity. So simple yet it changed my life. I met my goal over ten years ago, and I still meet my coach once a month 14 years later. 😊❤️ Check out Mike’s incredible story and get his best tips for weight maintenance! Franca Weight loss is like baking a cake: Follow the recipe and add exactly those ingredients! So with Jenny Craig, eat the food and follow the plan, and just like the recipe, you will see results. Barbara My best advice is to stay faithful and follow the plan exactly! Also, I exercise six days a week. Make lasting changes Noelle My coach, Kathy, shared this powerful quote that changed so much about how I look at healthy eating, choices, & overall health. “It’s only when we alter our eating habits out of love and respect for ourselves that lasting change has a real chance to take root in our lives.” Cathy Yvette, my coach, gave me homework. For each pound I lost, I had to write a difference in my life since starting the program. It was easy and fun, and made me appreciate the changes in my life, looks, clothes, health, etc. So when I need a boost, I go back and re-read my list and continue adding as I lose more weight. Thanks, Yvette❤️ Linda Best advice from my coach Jessica “If nothing changes, nothing will change.” Conquer cravings Madeline My coach gave me the advice that when a craving is coming on, take a step back, take a deep breath, and remember why I chose to adopt a healthier lifestyle for myself!

    6:45 - 7:15 a.m. Waking up to puppy cuddles … and a delicious breakfast. I hit the snooze button to cuddle with my two dogs just a little bit longer before I get out of bed. Prior to my weight loss journey, I would never imagine getting up so early! I would sleep in as late as I could before getting ready for the day. Now that I’m up, let’s see what’s on the menu for breakfast: Maple French Toast?! Mmm, my favorite! For a little extra sweetness, I’ll add the delicious Breakfast Syrup on top. For a side, I usually have an orange and drink a cup of skim milk. I love the food I eat! With the Rapid Results program, I have been able to lose 92 lbs.* (and counting!). I still can’t believe how far I have come in the last 13 months. I’ll forever be a fan of Jenny Craig and I thank them every day for having one of the best weight loss programs out there! 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. Sweating it out with a cardio and strength training workout. After walking the dogs, it’s time for my morning workout. Being active in the morning helps me feel energized for the rest of the day, and by 9 a.m. I already feel so accomplished! First, I do a half hour of cardio. I try to run up to 5 kilometers (3 miles) in a half hour. After my cardio workout, I complete a half hour of weight training. I grew up playing basketball, so I was pretty active. After high school, I started working full-time and stopped playing sports. Over the last ten years I gradually gained 100 lbs. At my heaviest, I was still in denial that I was overweight. I never thought I had a problem. When my clothes didn’t fit anymore, it was because I’d “gotten older,” not because I’d gained weight. I remember my friend encouraging me to be active in February 2018. I hadn’t worked out in ages, but I swallowed my pride and worked out with her. I remember thinking to myself, “I can’t just commit to the physical side of weight loss – I need to control what I am putting in my body.” When I went home, I looked up weight loss programs. How could I lose weight and stick to a plan? That’s how I stumbled upon Jenny Craig. Watching members’ success stories inspired me to pick up the phone and join Jenny Craig, too. 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Off to work! After my workout, I grab a quick snack to keep my energy levels up at work. My go-to snack is a Caramel Peanut Delight Essential Nutrition Bar with a small kiwi – delicious! At my job, I get to send people on all their dream holidays. I’m a travel agent, so I love to talk about anything travel-related! I love to travel and I’ve been to 25 countries! But traveling when you are overweight can be hard. In 2017, I visited Southeast Asia. I got ready to ride in a dune buggy and went to put the seat belt on, but I couldn’t get it over my body. I asked the workers for help, and they just stood over me and laughed. It was by far one of the most humiliating moments of my life. I have always been so comfortable in my skin and never felt that my weight was something to be judged and feel ashamed of. Before starting Jenny Craig, I hadn't stepped on a scale for six years. Ignorance is bliss, right? In March 2018, I stepped onto the scale for the first time and my weight stared back at me. 281 lbs. I was in complete shock – this couldn’t be right. There was no way I weighed that much. My consultant said, “Don’t worry; you will never see that number again.” She could not have been more right! I’m tearing up even thinking about that, because at that moment, I finally decided to take my life back. 1:30 - 2:00 p.m. What’s for lunch? I always enjoy the surprise of what I’m going to eat. Today’s meal is the delicious Chicken Ranch Melt. (Are you sure I can eat this, Jenny Craig? It seems too delicious to be on a weight loss menu! 😉) 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. Finishing up the day and enjoying a favorite snack. Back at work, a family is planning to visit Mexico! Helping them plan their vacation makes me dream of heading somewhere warm myself. I’m gearing up to go to Jamaica for my 30th birthday and I’m working to reach the 100-lb. weight loss mark by then! For a snack, I love having an unsweetened, fat-free vanilla yogurt paired with a small banana and a small amount of peanut butter. I love that I still get to have peanut butter as a part of my meal plan – it’s my favorite healthy fat! 6:30 - 7:15 p.m. Enjoying a delicious dinner and dessert. Dinner time! After a hard day’s work, it’s nice to just relax and enjoy my meal. The delicious Peanut Butter Cookies are my dessert! They’re super tasty and filling, and I just can’t get enough of Jenny Craig’s food. I’m 13 months into the program and I still love every bite! 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. Game on! Getting back into basketball has been so much fun! Now, I play basketball in a mixed league. I love my teammates and we have the best time together. Tonight, we won our game by two points – it was a nail biter! Since joining Jenny Craig, I have been able to get my life back. I’m back to playing basketball, a sport I hold close to my heart. I am a runner! A year ago, I could only power walk short distances, but now I am running 5K in under 27 minutes! Who am I?! I have also noticed that I sleep so much better. I would get backaches and they would wake me up at night. Now I don’t have any pain anymore! 8:30 -10:00 p.m. Winding down for bedtime. Before bed, I put on one of my favorite reality TV shows and cuddle up with my dogs. It has been a very productive and great day. I love my new lifestyle! 😊 Thanks for joining me – goodnight!

    Oh, broccoli. It’s one of those vegetables that we know is good for us, but usually isn’t at the top of the list when it comes to ‘go-to’ snacks. Packed with fiber to help you feel fuller and loaded with vitamins K and C as well as potassium and calcium — this is one green vegetable that is a great addition to any meal. The good news is you can make it tasty while reaping the health benefits of this powerhouse veggie — all you need to do is get a little creative! We’re sharing four different recipes — roasted or sautéed, in a stir-fry or soup — to help you turn those verdant florets into a tasty dish. These recipes are simple enough to toss together spur of the moment, and include ingredients from the Jenny Craig Fresh & Free Additions list, so they’ll support your Jenny Craig journey — whether you’re just starting out or are following our Maintenance Program. The soup serves four people and the stir-fry is enough for two. The other recipes can easily be scaled up as desired. Time to dish up some broccoli! Quick-Roasted Broccoli and Shallots By roasting your broccoli at a high temperature, it won’t take long to prep this side dish. Try to make the pieces of broccoli about the same size, so they cook evenly. Keep a close eye on the veggies to prevent burning, especially if you don’t have an oven thermometer. Serves 1 1 cup broccoli florets 1 shallot Non-stick cooking spray (a couple quick sprays, 1 teaspoon equivalent) Dash of salt Lemon wedge Cooking instructions: Preheat oven to 475 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut up broccoli into 1-inch pieces and put in a bowl. Peel and cut shallot into ¼-inch slices and add to broccoli. Spray lightly with cooking oil, sprinkle with salt and toss. Spread out evenly on the baking sheet and leave space between pieces to help them cook and brown evenly. Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes, until browned a little. Plate and squeeze lemon over veggies before serving. Broccoli Salsa Sauté This is a great side dish when you want bright, fresh flavors. Try this quick and easy salsa recipe if you want to make your own! Serves 1 1-2 tablespoons vegetable broth* 1 cup broccoli florets and stalks, chopped ¼ cup red pepper, diced ¼ cup homemade salsa fresca 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped Cooking instructions: Warm vegetable broth in a skillet over medium heat. Add broccoli and red pepper, and sauté till tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add to a bowl with salsa and cilantro and toss. Serve right away. If you want to add a little more volume to the dish, add an additional ¼ cup of salsa. Broccoli & Mushroom Stir-Fry One of the great things about a stir-fry is how quickly the veggies cook in a wok. Measure and chop all your ingredients ahead of time to make this dish come together even faster! Serves 2 1 tablespoon beef broth** 1 ½ cups broccoli florets and stalks, chopped 1 ½ cups mushrooms, sliced 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce 1 teaspoon rice vinegar 1 ½ teaspoon fresh lime juice ½ to 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated Cooking instructions: Heat sesame oil in a wok. Add broccoli and mushrooms and toss. Cook for a few minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. Toss till cooked through and serve right away. Spicy Broccoli Soup You can adjust the spice level by using fewer red pepper flakes. You can also choose whether you want to eat a chunky or puréed version. This recipe makes plenty of soup for leftovers — enjoy a bowl at lunch and another at dinner! Serves 4 1 serving = 1 cup 1 tablespoon vegetable broth*** 1 small onion, sliced and cut into half circles 3 cups low-sodium broth 4 cups broccoli florets and stalks, chopped 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or less to taste Cooking instructions: Sauté onions in olive oil over medium to low heat until browned but not burned, about 10 minutes. Add broth and stir, gently scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. These caramelized bits of onion add extra flavor. Add broccoli and red pepper flakes and simmer for 20 minutes, until broccoli is tender. Serve as is or purée in a blender and then serve. *If you’re following our Jenny Craig Maintenance program, feel free to swap the vegetable broth for 1 tsp. of olive oil. 1 teaspoon of olive oil = 1 fat serving. ** If you’re following our Jenny Craig Maintenance program, feel free to swap the beef broth for 1 tsp. of sesame seed oil. 1 teaspoon of olive oil = 1 fat serving. *** If you’re following our Jenny Craig Maintenance program, swap the vegetable broth for 1 tbsp. of olive oil. 1 tablespoon of olive oil = 3 fat servings.
