If you missed my first post on Nutrisystem, be sure to check it out here (I give you my opinion about their frozen breakfast offerings!).
The frozen lunches I tried on my 10 Day Challenge were a mixed bag. Some were absolutely fantastic, and others were, well….not so much. See what I thought about each meal below!
Chicken Quesadilla (1.5 out of 5 stars). This was the greatest disappointment in the bunch. I assumed that it would be one of my very favorites, but I found the filling to be just a strange, mushy mess. I didn’t even finish it! Definitely leave this one on the Schwan’s truck if you place an order.
Steak and Cheese Melt (3 out of 5 stars). This was definitely not bad, but the filling was just a bit too brothy for my personal tastes. It isn’t something I would order again.
Toasted Ham and Cheese (3.5 out of 5 stars). Really my only complaint about these hot pocket alternatives is that they were a bit on the dry side. Otherwise, I found them to have good flavor and to crisp nicely in the toaster oven. I’d say that these are worth a try.
Meatball Parmesan Melt (3.5 out of 5 stars). This was another dish that tasted a little bit too brothy, but even with that said, I found it to be tasty, and was genuinely surprised that this was a low calorie dish. If you like Meatballs, try this one out, for sure.
Roasted Veggie Pizza (4 out of 5 stars). The crust on this pizza is delicious. I don’t care for many of the vegetables on this pizza, but the crust was so good, I ate them, anyway. I think that is saying something!
Margherita Pizza (4 out of 5 stars). The pizza tasted fabulous. I will say that the amount of sauce on the pizza was almost laughable (see how it is just dotted on in the picture?). But, the taste was great, so maybe the lesson here is that you really don’t need very much sauce to achieve a great flavor.
Chicken Fajita Melt (5 out of 5 stars). This was definitely my favorite. The chicken pieces in the dish were wonderful. This really and truly reminded me of a hot pocket. It tasted downright indulgent. I would very strongly recommend this to anyone, dieting or not! It’s just that good!

In a few days, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on dinners from Nutrisystem. Yes, there were a few bombs, but there were also quite a few OUTSTANDING choices. Stay tuned! 🙂
