I have not tried to cook with them (I like them as bars), but one thing that occurs to me is that you could use a Medifast vanilla pudding blended with 1Tbsp of cream cheese (counts as your healthy fat). Crumble the lemon bar, and mix with the pudding. 1/2 of this would be a meal + 1/2 half of your healthy fat. I think it would come out like a lemon cheesecake thingie!.
Which I am now going to try when I get home!..
That's a good idea...I have also just spread a 1/2 tbsp on either a strawberry or lemon crunch bar before if I'm low on fat (which I always seem to be when I eat fish or shrimp!)...just doing that is good and tastes like a cheesecake. Or maybe I'm just desperate for it to taste like one...but it's still good...
Try breaking the bar up into little chunks and freezing it. Tastes really good for some reason...
2 Vanilla shake; small amount of vanilla extract; 1 Tbs Eggbeater; 1/8 tsp baking powder; 3 pkgs True Lemon (2 inside recipe and 1 sprinked on top the all the cookies); crushed up Lemon bar. Just enough water to make into batter consistency. Bake 13 to 16 minutes at 350. Great Lemon Cookies. Freezes well. Make recipe into 3 cookies (only risk is that not equal amount of chunks in each cookie - I live on the wild side).
Sometimes I add SF Marshmallow syrup and cut True Lemon down by a pkg...
That's funny...sounds like a good recipe!.
Wow, just noticed your ticker too...congratulations on your loss!..
What is true lemon and where do you buy it?..
You've prob seen those little lemon and lime shaped thingies in the produce section?? That's true lemon...
It's a brand of bottled lemon juice. It's usually found in the juice aisle of any grocery store...
Thank you all for your recipes! I'm going to give them a try..
I buy the packets (the unsweetened ones). They store well. I also use them to season other recipes ... like cacciatore sauce. Adding a little to that means that I use less salt. Or make a sauce for your fish.
You can also make lemonade..
I found True Lemon next to the Crystal light and it's a powdered product. Check mfg site for locations near you. Its in almost all the stores in Chicago area. I like the True Lemon and True Lime. The True orange isn't very good to my taste. True Lemon and a pkg of vanilla pudding (put in freezer for 50 min or so) is my absolute favorite Medifast meal...

I cut up the lemon bar and froze it. It tasted much better to me...thanks MT Cup!! I will also try the other recipe too :-)..
The True Lemon I buy is a little powdered packet of lemon juice that comes in a box (you can also get true lime and true orange)..
