The kit included a set of measuring serving spoons, a meal portioner for your plate, a water bottle and a Low GI Cookbook. They seem like simple enough things to use, and to assist in losing weight, but sometimes that’s all you need!
I also love the Low GI cook book! We’ve tried several of the recipes out of it and love them. They’re not the “healthy recipes” you’d expect, bland dry and gross. Instead you’re going to find recipes like Roast Pumpkin and Chickpea Salad, Sushi Rolls, Chachouka, French Toast with Berry Compote.. they sound like fancy restaurant recipes. And when you and your family eat them, they wont know they’re eating healthier! I love that it’s something you can make for your whole family, you wont need to make one meal for you and one for the family.
I did make them gluten free, and the recipe still worked out great! I’m pretty sure the gluten free flour mix I use added a bit to the calorie count, but you couldn’t even tell they were gluten free! They were moist and chewy and just delicious!
Only one complaint -I wouldn’t call the cupcakes, they’re more like muffins :). That could just be a personal thing though. Or it might be the lack of frosting! I can tell you though that they wont last long around the house!
Since Nutrisystem sent me this system I’ve been having a great time trying their recipes and knowing that they are healthy and good for our family! I’ve even lost some weight by using it!
