Even though the food is pretty great, if you’ve been on Medifast for a few weeks, you will be looking for ways to jazz things up. Fortunately, there are lots of Medifast Recipes to help you with this. Collecting these recipes has become something of a part-time hobby of mine. Unfortunately, these recipes rarely have photos and it’s sometimes hard to know if you are actually preparing the food correctly.
Thanks to YouTube, I’ve recently discovered Stacey Hawkins, the Time Savour Gourmet. Hawkins bills herself as the “Queen of Lean and Green” and she’s uploaded over 85 episodes of her internet cooking show so far. This is a pretty incredible resource for people on Medifast who know their way around their kitchen. I haven’t personally tried any of these recipes yet, but I’ve really enjoyed watching them and planning out meals for the week to come. Hawkins seems very legitimate and most of the meals would be great even when you are done with the weight loss portion of Medifast and have just moved on to eating healthy well-proportioned meals.
Here are a few recipes that I’m pretty excited to try. First up, Lean and Green Boneless Buffalo Wings. Are you kidding me? Buffalo Wings are terrible for you, but I love them and they’re one of the things that I occasionally get serious cravings for, especially during football season. Check out this video for a Medifast safe recipe:
Next up, Lean and Green Meatballs! My mouth is watering.
So, check out her YouTube channel and let me know what you think. There are over 85 videos, and while they are all healthy, not all of them are technically Lean and Green recipes according to the Medifast specifications. Also, some of the videos feature recipes that are fairly complex, but they all look really delicious. The fact that they are documented with video makes me a little more optimistic about trying them out myself.
