Your question was: Movie snacks safe for Nutrisystem?.
I never buy food in a theater and haven't for years. I take my own food in and my water or diet Mountain Dew. The food can be sliced apples or you can take a bag of Nutrisystem chips to crunch on...
Pam's NutriSystem Movie Treat.
1 Package NutriSystem Rainbow Delights (Dessert).
2 Tablespoons Raisins (Afternoon Snack Fruit Serving).
Appropriate serving of Nuts (Dinner Fat).
1 cup air-popped popcorn (free food).
Mix together, put in plastic bag, slip in purse, enjoy one morsel at a time..
(Have the Dairy/Protein from the afternoon snack as an after dinner dessert, i.e. yogurt.)..
Wow!!! You are good, Pam!!!! When I grow up ( - won't happen) I want to know all the dieting do's and dont's like you do!!! You are truly a wealth of info! I was just telling some friends that there is so much that I need to learn about eating healthy!! I sure hope I can learn it!!!..
Don't take a can of pop in- when you go to open it- it makes so much noise lifting the tab that everyone starts looking around! Been there, done that! Where I live you can get kicked out for bringing own food or liquids. But -$##$^&*() them!.
Not gonna be a problem for me anymore- my sister and I go to matinaes(sp?) and it is $7 (Sr). Since Avatar came, and eveyone got in to going to movies again-what do they do but raise the rates again!!!! It is just nuts- finally fill a theater and let's chase everyone out. It was gonna be $18 for 3D movie now, $15 for reg evening movie.
Hello??? Earth to greedy idiots!..
Take a bag of one of the Nutrisystem chips/crisps. I take them to restaurants like Olive Garden, so I can munch on them with my salad instead of their bread. Just don't take the nacho crisps, they're kind of loud when you munch on them !..
Pam that is awesome I hve been avoiding the theater because I am addcted to popcorn with lots and lots of dded butter and raisinets. I have been eating this for years so now I just wait for the DVD...except for shrek movies LOL..
Sometimes I take a small bag of baby carrots and baby tomatoes and my own dill pickle. I have weaned myself off the big movie buttered popcorn. If I absolutely have to have popcorn I will get the jr. size (smaller than the small) with no butter (I count that as about 300 calories) and eat a really light meal of like veggies only with some scrambled egg whites. I always take my own water in. Getting off movie popcorn with the butter was probably one of the hardest things for me...
Depending on the length of the movie or how many I see, sometimes I'll bring an serving of raisins, turkey hot dog, hard boiled egg preshelled, an Nutrisystem snack/dessert, or some tuna salad. I don't bring them all with me usually though...
I love that recipe/idea! Sounds terrific!!! I could even make some similar for the kids (they can have real M&Ms) for a healthier treat for them too..
Eat a Poly salad (literally sized to the largest glass mixing bowl) before you go. Then have a large diet drink as your treat (sit near an exit and take a leak during the boring part of the movie. Pre-emptive salad will have you full. Diet drink will make you feel good for spending money for the theater and give you something sweet.
Alternatively, you could smuggle in a Nutrisystem snack bar. But I BET(!) that huge salad and diet drink will fill you WAY MORE!..
I have taken one of the lunch bars or one of the snacks, grapes (they are my favorite to take) or the mix like pam does and I share a diet pop with my dh or take my own water. Nancy..
