Chicken or shrimp fajitas, no tortilla or onion. Could use a lettuce leaf instead of the tortilla. I also just saw a bun recipe made from egg whites that might work..
Taco salads! I'm having one tonight..
Ground meat (the amount depends on fat %).
Cheese (subtract from your lean).
And any other veggies you'd like to add! I usually do 1/2 cup tomatoes, 1.5 cup of lettuce, and 1/4 cup of other on-plan veggies...
I make "enchiladas"....
Be forewarned that I am not good at measuring and making sure that I am in the Medifast food guide lines. But I make this quite often and have been losing weight, so I am assuming it isn't hurting me too badly. My husband likes this casserole too.
3 Zucchini Squash...don't know the nutritional breakdown.
1/2 pound ground turkey.
(320 cal/1.5 lbs...16 g. fat/1.5 lbs...0 carbs).
1 can enchilada sauce.
( I use "Hatch" brand, Tex-Mex style enchilada sauce in a 15 oz. can....
2 cups grated reduced fat monterey jack cheese.
(480 cal/2 cups...30 g. fat/2 cups...0 carbs.).
This will make two servings:.
470 cal/serving...26.5 g.fat/serving....10.5 carbs/serving (plus whatever carbs are in squash).
Brown and season the ground turkey to taste (I season with season all salt, pepper, chili powder, a few dried onion flakes and a chicken bullion cube).
Peal and slice zucchini length wise (I get 4 slices out of each zucchini when cutting length wise). Toss in olive oil and lay in single layer in a 9x13 casserole dish. Roast zucchini in the oven on a very high heat until softened and roasted well.
Add the canned enchilada sauce to the cooked ground turkey. Pour on top of the zucchini and sprinkle the top of this with the grated cheese. Pop it back in the oven just until the cheese is melted.
This makes two serving....one for me and one for my husband...who, like I said, loves this dish. You can add a salad on the side to complete your meal.
I know there will be those who will say what is not "legal" about this meal. I am not recommending that anyone do as I do...just saying what I do. I am sure you can take this and make any modifications you need to make it work in your plan (less cheese, meat, etc.).
I also make a variation of this into eggplant parmesan, substituting sliced, roasted eggplant for the zucchini and marinara sauce for the enchilada sauce. I like using the grated monterey jack cheese but you could use a low fat mozzarella too..
Great suggestions all - thank you so much!.
Alana - I think I am going to post that recipe on the nutrition info on the R.D. support forum and see if they can figure out how it might fit into the Medifast weight loss plan. I'm glad it's been so successful for you, and thanks again!.
Now I am off to prepare my own Mexican dish! Yum!..
I think a year or two ago someone else posted a really good receipe but it used so many of your Medifast meals in the one meal that I didn't save it. I try not to get way creative in order to avoid going over on condiements...
Alana~ that sounds so good. I'm going to try your recipe and let you know if it turned out okay. I enjoy cooking and this sounds pretty simple. Thanks! D..
