Nutrisystem "Chicken Tenders" (tomato added)

Doesn’t this look delicious?  It tastes delicious, too!  I have been so impressed with the Nutrisystem frozen food.  The pantry (non-frozen) selections are tasty but in my opinion, they are completely surpassed by the frozen food.  It has a quality of freshness that makes the vegetables crunchy and tasting fresh-picked.  The entrees and sandwich melts are so good, I would honestly eat these whether I were trying to lose weight or not.  In our area, the food comes from Schwan’s (not sure if that’s true everywhere).  Schwan’s has an excellent reputation for delicious food.

This past week, Nutrisystem announced their first-ever Celebrity Chef Culinary Council.  The Council will be guiding new food and menu selections as well as providing their expertise on the latest ingredient and culinary trends.  It’s just another step in Nutrisystem’s goal to provide the best tasting food AND at the lowest price.

I give it two enthusiastic thumbs-up!

    My plates never look that pretty- stellar photograph! But I agree, the frozen foods are the best and I would opt to eat them even if I wasn’t trying to lose weight, too.

    Hugs to you,

    My favorite frozen dinner is the Asian Beef Stirfry. I could eat it every day!
