I just went back and read some of the previous posts. Full of Grace--wow! Almost a year of the same meals! I feel like a whiner because I'm already a little bored and I've only been on Bistro for 9 weeks. I have lost 20 lbs and have only had a couple of minor issues. One was that I live in No. Calif. where the summer temps are usually close to 100*, so had to request more dry ice--problem solved.
And, Terra, I hated the rock shrimp pasta dish--requested that they never send it again. They do use a lot of black beans and "Latin" flavors. I prefer Asian and Italian, but that's pretty minor. I also didnot like the sirloin dishes, something about the texture, but my husband thought they were just fine.
Some of the dishes with sliced turkey ( the breadless sandwiches) are dry( the turkey is dry), but ok other than that. And I wish there was more variety in the fish dishes; seems to be only blackened or jerk tilapia. Good but a little boring after a while.
Terra, I think you'll find there aren't as many carbs in the meals as you might think reading the descriptions. The rice is usually used as a stuffing for chicken or mixed with black beans. In 9 weeks I had potatoes twice. I have only had a few stirfry meals; those did have rice, but only a small amount. No bread, the "sandwiches" are always breadless. I do like the yucca, something I had never had before.
Like Full of Grace, I now have a much better idea of proper portion sizes, what foods are satisfying, etc. I am very thankful that I heard about meal delivery plans and Bistro MD on 3FC.
