Smile exploding sloppy joe?

So I got my first Medifast shipment today, of course after work I am starved so I try one of the bars (not horrible, not great) and then I decide I am going to have the vegitarian sloppy joe for dinner.

The directions say to put the contents of the packet with half cup of water in a deep microwave safe container and heat for two minutes, stir, then heat for two additional minutes.

LOL okay, So after one minute I hear this CRACK!! noise and take a look. That little bit of mix and water covered the inside of my microwave and the cup (a white one) was covered with dry red food.

Funny thing though; what was left tasted pretty good hahaha.

So my question to the Medifast veterens out there is this: Is there any reason I couldn't just add boiling water out of my tea kettle to this stuff and let it set til cool enough to eat?? Thanks.

Hi eightiesbabe!

My personal opinion is that the Medifast directions are CRAP when it comes to hot foods. I always mix them with hot tap water, then nuke for just 1 minute, stir, then heat another 30 seconds if it's not hot enough.

Also, stuff is much less likely to boil over if you mix it up in advance. Even 1/2 hour will help - a few hours is best.

Read through these threads - there's lots of tips and tricks.

Good luck!

Lost the first 100 with Medifast, now working on the last 25

Yeah, those things happen if you don't keep an eye on it when watching them. For the record, I have never done Medifast, but whenever I use the microwave, I never leave food in there for the time specified or the time that I think it may be done at. I always check on it after a few minutes, 30 sec, etc just to see what's happened. I'm not saying you weren't watching it, but it's always nice to take precaution! :P
