Your question was: How to cook Nutrisystem friendly food for family?.
Ann, everything sounds delicious! I'm sure they can be made Nutrisystem friendly. Find a recipe by Christina Gray and click on her link at the bottom. I'm sure she has a ton of ideas on her page.
Graylady is another that has a link to awesome recipes!.
I'm not creative so I count on them for great ideas and recipes...
Also, here's a link to one from the recipe club: .
Maybe you could make that version for yourself, and your regular recipe for the family?.
Good luck and enjoy the time with your family!!!..
On Friday I'd use a whole grain pasta and measure my portion size so that I could enjoy the meal with my family. I'd definitely still toss in some veggies simply because it sounds yummy. There is no reason why they can't eat whole grain pasta. I'd definitely agree though that you should skip the garlic bread..
On Saturday I'd have my husband make patties from low fat beef (or my preference is ground turkey breast) and measure out one 3 to 4 oz patty just for me. This way you can enjoy this meal with your family as well.
What about some zucchini fries for the crunchy salty option? I believe a very light dusting with flour and egg beaters and a quick toss in a fry pan (maybe with a little pam) or baked in the oven could satisfy that option..
The rosemary chicken on Sunday can be Nutrisystem friendly if you remove the skin and stick with the white meat. Try not to add any unnecessary fats while cooking it either..
I don't think I can help you out with Monday. I can't think of a healthy way to make enchiladas. I do a healthy taco every Monday at home using 99% FF ground turkey breast, low sodium taco seasoning, whole grain taco shells, LF mexican cheese, and FF sour cream..
I hope you have a great time with your son and his girlfriend!..

1 Nutrisystem Chicken Breast Patty, sliced.
1 1/2 slices fat free cheddar cheese slices.
1 Tbs. fat free sour cream.
1 Tbs. salsa.
4 squirts ICBINB spray.
2 whole wheat tortillas (La Tortilla Factory's are 50 cal each).
Heat medium skillet and coat evenly w/ Pam cooking spray. Heat Nutrisystem chicken breast in microwave for 1 min. Take 1 of the tortillas and spray 2 squirts of ICBINB on one side. Place in skillet w/ ICBINB side down. Flip after 2-3 min. Break up cheese evenly over tortilla in skillet.
Top w/ chicken. Remove from skillet. Take 2nd tortilla and again spray one side w/ 2 squirts of ICBINB spray. Place in skillet w/ ICBINB side down. Flip after 2-3 min.
Cut into 4 triangles. Mix sour cream and salsa in a small bowl. Use as dip for quesadilla...
This recipe sounds great. I intend to try it with the family. I also would like to avoid eating my Nutrisystem meal alone and everyone else eating something else...
Thanks everyone. I like the idea of the quesadillas. I had been planning to make black bean quesadillas for a lunch one day. I may have to switch things up a bit...
