For any newb who has ever taken her first taste of chili or mac and cheese and almost broken a tooth, you know what I'm talking about. Medifast does not include instructions on its replacement meal packets for making some of its, er... crunchier meals palatable. Cooked as prepared, they're not al dente... they're dentist bait.
|Soaking your Medifast meals will soften them up |
so you won't feel like you're eating pebbles.
My routine is to start soaking my lunch right after my breakfast so the texture is just right when I microwave it. This makes the vegetable protein "meat" in the Sloppy Joes actually chewable and puffs up the pasta in the chicken noodle soup and ziti marinara so they almost look like the picture on the package.
So if you're listening Medifast, please change the instructions on some of your meal packets. You can even keep the recipe as is but add a "For best results" suggestion that at least mentions the soaking option. After all, we're all in this to lose pounds, not our permanent teeth.
