Quick question... Has anyone heard of chemical reaction Nutrisystem diet? Thanks for any response. 2nd question I got is.. First off, thank you to one of the guys on this board for recommending the Jimmy Dean turkey sausage. It is awesome. I was addicted to breakfast sandwiches and now I can have a healthy one..

So, here it is....my perfect Saturday Breakfast:.

Part 1 (low gly carb, protein, dairy from morning snack):.

1 JD turkey sausage patty.

1 small whole wheat roll (P.S. Target always has these in stock).

1 slice of FF American cheese.

Slice the roll in half, spray on your favorite butter substitute spray. Put the sausage patty and roll in the toaster oven. Once the bread starts to toast, add the slice of american cheese and let it cook for about 30 more seconds. Now you have a tasty sausage sandwich..

Part 2 (NS meal):.

Prepare the pancake mix to get 2 pancakes.

Put on 1/4 cup sugar free syrup (only thing not on plan, but very minimal calories).

Part 3 is fruit of your choice.

This is a really filling breakfast. If you have been previously addicted to McGriddles (like me), then you can eat the pancakes first and then use your sandwich to rub up the left over syrup on the plate to give it a McGriddle like quality!.

Oh yeah, and drink a glass of water before and after!..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could assist you..

I got this from the recipe club and had today..

Pancake mix, make with just shy of 1/3 cup of skim milk and add 2 tbsp of sugar free syrup. Mix well and make 4 pancakes..

Now use your protein for an egg and switch your morning snack protein for a Morning star veggie sausage and use your carb at snack time..

With this you can make 1 big sandwich with 2 pancakes, egg cooked with pam spray and veggie sausage pattie and have 2 pancakes left for side dish or make 2 sandwiches, one with egg one with sausage. Add in some strawberries on the side or a glass of juice and you have a HUGE breakfast..

This is what I have on weekends now, either that or slice the scone in half and make into French toast..

The morning star sausage patties are great. Only problem is they come in a 2 pack but serving size is for just one pattie, this can be misleading at first..

I will have to try those JD turkey sausage next time I shop. I think they are in with the regular sausage while the morning star items are in the freezer section. I do use some of the turkey bacon, is not bad flavor so sausage would probably be even better. Thanks, will give it a try...

I thought that JD turkey sausage had too much fat for a protein serving? The little links sitting patiently in my freezer for maintenance do...

This sounds good, but it also sounds more like a meal for someone on maintenance...

I too am a JD turkey sausage fan. I dice 1 patty and nuke for about 30 seconds. Into two small ramekins(about 3"), sprayed with Pam. I put half the sausage, some red pepper flakes, & 1/2 C egg beaters. Microwave for about 3 minutes until eggbeaters have set. You have two mini-quiches that are about 90 calories each..

As far as the pancakes go, I just use water instead of skim milk. I can't tell the difference in taste or texture. You can also use 1/3 C of egg beaters for a more cakey pancake..

I am also a fan of the Oscar Meyer pre-cooked bacon. 4 slices = 70 calories. Goes great with the pancakes. I nuke 2 tbs of Smucker's sugar free peach preserves (20 calories=free food) for 20 seconds or so and use it for syrup. I know the bacon is a little higher in fat than Nutrisystem would like but it's good and it didn't seem to affect my loss rate..

I never was much of a fan of the Nutrisystem breakfasts except for the BBM's.

& the pancakes so I just kind of made some up that stayed pretty close to the calorie levels of Nutrisystem foods or below...

I haven't gotten my food yet, so I went ahead and entered the regular food that I had for breakfast. This sucks. I'm up to almost 700 calories and that's one meal...

I have been eating the turkey sausage patty every morning for the last 3 months, so I don't think that it has enough of anything to derail you...

To be honest, I'd be happy to call that my breakfast protein plus the fat serving for the day. Fat is always something I'm scrounging around trying to fit in, anyway..

Edited to add: I can't believe I never thought to do this. A protein and fat serving combined is 145 calories or less (P: 100 or less, F: 45), no more than 8 grams of fat (P: 3 or less, F: 5), and no less than 7 grams of protein (P: no less than 7). 3 of the JD links I have are 120 calories, 7g of fat, and 13g of protein. That fits perfectly. I just have to remember that I can't have a fat serving at night...

1 swig from the juice container while standing by the fridge..

1 swig from the FF Milk jug while standing by the fridge..

1 piece of WW Toast with SF Smucker's Apricot Jam..

1 Nutrisystem Apple Scone..

Now, that's what I call a.

It is all about portions and calorie density. Veggies and salads have low calorie density. Proteins and fats have high density. Logging you current foods is quite an eye openner. No wonder we all got where we are (or were). Your food will arrive soon.

Best of Luck. JT..

Instead of the Jimmy Dean sausage you could use Morning star Veggie sausage. I was using it daily until I switched to Canadian bacon(HAM). fewer calories...

Yes, I've been eating the Morning Star until now. It's OK. It works. It's only a protein instead of a protein and a fat..

But I'm like a kid in a sausage shop now that I know how to fit in my Jimmy Dean Turkey. I won't eat it every day, of course. But knowing I can, knowing how to allow for it in the plan, that's very satisfying to me...

Morning Breakfast consist of:.

1. Thomas Light English Muffin.

2. One Egg.

3. Glass of OJ - with cholesterol meds..

4. Nutrisystem Entree..

I create my own Egg McMuffin. This really holds me over well...

A single Jimmie Dean Turkey Sausage Patty has 3.5 grams of fat, so it's half a gram over. Half a gram may or may not screw you over. Incidentially, you can add a 1/4 cup of egg beater to the sandwich, as they're only 30 calories and 0 fat. Of course, that would depend on how many calories are in the cheese you use.....

I picked up the JD turkey breakfast sausage this week and had for breakfast. The turkey sausage are less calories than the morning star and I thought it tasted very good. Thanks for mentioning them as I had no idea about them till this thread. They are also thick enough where you can take one, cut in half and make it look like even more food...
