optional/to taste: 1 packet splenda (i use stevia)

Mix ingredients in a bowl. It will be a thick batter. smooth it out flat to cover the bottom of the bowl. The bottom of the bowl will be the size of your cake. it comes out more like a thick pancake. I microwave mine for 1 minute but I have a wimpy microwave. You can play with the ingredient amounts until you get a consistency you like. Some recipes have more egg beaters, up to 2 to 3 tbsp, I just use more water to save on the lean and stay OP.

For the "cinnabon" version add
1tbsp ICBINB
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Definitely makes for a nice change from shakes all the time. Banana shakes made for a really nice cake.
***** I cant tellyou enogh how this helped me. there is NO WAY i could have drank another strawbery shake. I made this today and this is totally doable!!! It tastes good and an easy eat

question: adding the egg beaters and vanilla and splenda... i am done with my 3 condiments for th day correct?

This is nothing but AWESOME! As simple as it is I would never have thought of it. I sipped a "frap" this morning and just about purred!

Vanilla Iced Coffee
8 oz. cold coffee (I make extra in the morning and keep it in the frig)
1 MF vanilla shake
1 c. ice
Put all ingredients in a blender.

Chicken with Wild Rice Soup was very bland to me. I added a chicken boulion cube and now I look forward to it.

Default pancake/oatmeal "muffins"

i've been playing with a recipe i found on some boards for a "muffin"... more like a scone, than anything else, but chewy and portable. the original called for using any oatmeal, mixing only enough water to wet it into a ball, and microwaving to make a "muffin". here's what i do:

1 oatmeal packet , any flavor
1/4 - 1/2 tsp baking powder AND baking soda (experiment with measures) too little; no rising... too much and bitter taste
enough liquid to wet oatmeal into a hold together ball (start with about 1/4 cup and add more if too dry) use any liquid... i use caramel SF syrup (torani, etc) or walden farms maple syrup, or fruit flavor for blueberry oatmeal, etc. use Walden farms chocolate syrup to make choc muffin! use any combination of flavors that suit your fancy. i mix and bake it in a small styrofoam bowl ( hate doing dishes)
microwave about 60-90 seconds depending on your microwave. it gets tougher the longer you microwave it. sprinkle with butter buds, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.

here's another variation: same principle

1 packet pancake mix
enough liquid of any flavor(s) to make a thick sticky batter ( about 2-3 TBL) i use choclate syrup with the choc chip pancake mix
don't need to add any leavening agent, since pancake mix has it
mix and bake in styrofoam bowl (see above)
microwave about 60-70 seconds
sprinkle with butter buds, score the top like tic-tac-toe, and drizzle inside with SF walden farms maple syrup.. makes a pancake muffin!!

2 MF Cream Of Chicken pkts
2 MF Eggs pkts
2T ground flax seed (I didn't have it so I used olive oil)
10 T water
1 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried dill weed (I didn't have it so I used oregano)
couple grinds of fresh ground black pepper

Warm oven at 375 F. Put in sprayed muffin tin-regular size not mini. Bake 15 mins until just brown and spring back when pressed.

2 biscuits=1 MF meal
Total yield 8 muffins/4 MF meals


Come on people, put the recipes that you are using and that tastes good!!! We are here for support
i have tried this delicious recipe for some time; here are my findings and variations. try mixing up the basic packets; instead of cream of chicken, i have used interchangably the tomato and broccoli. i also use the southwest eggs. my best variant is 1 tomato creamy/ 1 broccoli creamy / 1 southwest eggs/ and 1 maple oatmeal ( the oatmeal gives better texture). then i add any number of spices, my faves are garlic powder, onion powder , dried ( or fresh) parsley, thyme, even a little curry powder, sprinkle in to your own taste. be creative! i DO add the flax seed ( it helps the texture) and i add about 1/2 tsp EACH baking soda and baking powder. i add more than the 10 TBL water ( that's 1/2 cup + 2 TBL) to make a wetter sticky batter. it rises better if it's wetter. i add about 1/4 - 1/3 C more water than the recipe, depending on how much spice powder i've put in. i've also added a spinkle of grated parm cheese, or sprinkle with sesame seeds before baking. after baking and cooling , i slice 2 muffins into thin 1/4" slices ( about 6-8 per muffin) and toast them in a toaster broiler. then i use them as "bruschetta" with a chicken / turkey / egg / tuna salad/spread made of my lean with some celery, scallions, radish, etc (whatever "green" you want) for a huge and satisfying OP meal. i make 8 muffins, so 2 is a meal. make any combination of one medifast and however much of your lean/green you want to use. be creative!!!!

I totally stole this from Ideal Protein, and made a few adjustments for MF, but I had a Big Mac in a bowl for lunch today and OMW it tasted JUST like a big mac. Delicious, and perfect for satisfying a mcdonalds craving!

* 5 oz cooked lean beef
* Salt and pepper, to taste
* 1 teaspoon minced dry onions
* 2 dill pickle spears
* 2 tablespoons WF Thousand Island Dressing
* 1/2 cup lettuce
*1/4 cup chopped tomato

Brown the ground beef, drain off any fat, season with salt and pepper.. Meanwhile, soak the dry onions in a little water to rehydrate them. Put the meat in a large salad bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Toss and eat at once.

Counts as 1 lean, 1 snack, 1 green

Hi! Have you tried using diet sodas instead of water? I like diet lemon-lime or even ginger ale to mix the MF drinks. Gives them more flavor and some fizz!

Default Medifast question

Hello, I am new to Medifast (and new to forums). I just started doing the 5 and 1 plan and it seems to be working fine. However I have several products I don't care for and was wondering if there are people out there I can exchange products with. My husband bought me the products in November (right before the holidays but of course I didn't start the program till the second week in January. When I called to exchange, they said I passed the 30 day window. If anyone with experience can assist I would be most appreciative! Thank you, Julie

Which products do you dislike the most? I'm still within my 30 day window. I don't care for the soft bakes. I don't care for the pretzels or pizza bites.

Heres my recipe for Beef Stew 5 servings 1 Lean 3 Green 3 Condiments

20 oz Precooked Roast Beef * 4 leans
1 cup Lowfat Mozzarella Cheese 1 Lean

For 5 Leans you will need 15 Condiments. These are the ones I used.

2 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth 2 condiments
1 tsp Minced Garlic 2 condiments
1 tsp Onion Powder 2 condiments
1 tsp Thyme 1 condiments
1 tsp Salt 4 condiments
1 T Low Sodium Soy Sauce 1 condiments
1 T Worcestershire Sauce 3 condiments

For 5 Leans you will need 15 Greens. Pick from the following list.

1/4 cup RAO Marinara Sauce

1/2 cup Diced Mushrooms
1/2 cup Chopped Green Onions
1/2 cup Diced Celery Precooked
1/2 cup Frozen Green Beans Precooked
1/2 cup Canned Tomatoes
1/2 cup Broccoli Florets Precooked
1/2 cup Turnip Kale Spinach etc Precooked

Heathy saute Mushrooms and Onions in broth in a large nonstick pot over medium high heat.
Add all condiments except Broth. Stir well.
Add choice of Greens except for RAO and Tomatoes. Stir well.
Add Tomatoes RAO and Broth. Stir well.
Add Mozzarella and stir till melted and mixed in. This thickens the stew.
Add Roast and stir well.

It varies since I like to use up leftover greens but in my last stew my 15 greens were 1c mushrooms , 1c green onions, 1.5c green beans, .5c broccoli, .5c celery, 1c turnip greens, 1.5c tomatoes, .5 c RAO

* I buy Roasts on sale when theyre buy one get one free. I precook them and freeze in portions for my recipes.

Not really a recipe but Id like to point out that waffling things can be a real game changer. I already had a regular 8" round waffle iron. You can also use a Dash mini waffle iron.

Directions are for my iron. YMMV.

Turn on iron and while its getting hot mix your fueling per the directions. This works for brownies, blue berry biscuit, cinnamon cake, gingerbread, and chocolate chip cookie. Others like potatoes will require some tweaking. Im still working on my technique for those,

After your iron is hot spray top and bottom with Pam etc. Plop your fueling in the middle and close the lid.

This morning I had a brownie waffle. "Baked" it 3 mins for crispy on the outside soft in the middle.

I usually mix up a double batch and eat half a waffle for breakfast and half later. You could do some ahead for work etc.

I love waffling things! To waffle mashed potatoes, I add about 2T egg beaters (I think it's like 1/17 of a lean but I don't count it) and 3T water and a pinch of baking powder to the packet, mix and waffle about 3 minutes. I love to eat these with yellow mustard.

I am contemplating restarting Medifast/Optavia after a hiatus. I've regained a lot of the weight I lost in 2013 and nothing has worked as well as this plan. I'm happy to see someone is still here posting about it.
