New foods from Jenny Craig


feet on a bathroom scale - isolated

I have been overweight my entire life. I have tried every diet and eating program known to man. Some worked pretty good and others were a total waste of time and money.

One program I tried for a month about a year or so ago was Jenny Craig.  Jenny Craig provides clients with one-to-one counseling to discuss any food related issues you might have and to devise a “game plan.” In addition you have the opportunity to purchase Jenny Craig foods.

If you EVER get the chance to try Jenny Craig’s Turkey Burgers – do so! It’s been well over a year since I had one last and I am still in love with it. It as by far the best I have ever had. I wish I could just walk into Jenny Craig and stock up on them. Sadly, only Jenny Craig members can purchase Jenny Craig’s foods.

My time on Jenny Craig was a good one. I had a very positive experience. My favorite part was the food. The food was delicious!

Unlike other foods offered by weight loss plans, Jenny Craig’s food was not only delicious, it also tasted fresh. It didn’t taste like it was sitting in a freezer or on a shelf for months at a time. The food tasted like it was freshly made. That is one of the biggest things that stood out to me about the food – the freshness of it all.


Another thing I enjoyed about the food was the variety. Jenny Craig has a great variety including snacks and desserts.

Jenny Craig recently introduced new products, some of which I had the opportunity to try out for myself.

  • Loaded Baked Potato
  • Italian Style Pasta Bake
  • Classic Waffles
  • Chocolate Peppermint Cake (seasonal)
  • Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich
  • Pumpkin Loaf (seasonal)
  • Pumpkin Spice Cakes (Seasonal)
  • Homestyle Beef Pot Roast
  • Classic Lasagna with Meat Sauce
  • Turkey & Wild Rice
  • Apple Crisp
  • Chocolate Lava Cake
  • Strawberry Yogurt Anytime Bar

I just had to try the Chocolate Lava Cake and Chocolate Peppermint Cake right away (not at the same time of course – but I was tempted). WOW! It’s hard to believe these desserts were part of a weight loss plan. They were amazing and didn’t taste like “diet food” at all. Diet foods tend to be bland or just plain gross. These desserts tasted like something you would be served at  restaurant. They were that good!



I LOVED the Loaded Baked Potato. I could seriously eat baked potatoes every day of the week. They are one of my favorite foods. The Jenny Craig Loaded Baked Potato didn’t disappoint. It was SO GOOD!

I was equally impressed by the Turkey and Wild Rice meal. Frozen poultry can sometimes get chewy or hard. That was not the case with the turkey in this dish. It was still nice and juicy after I warmed it up in the microwave. I was also pleasantly surprised by how much meat was included. Sometimes frozen meals give you just a few bite size piece of meat. As you can see from the photo the Jenny Craig Turkey and Wild Rice dish gives you a decent amount of nice sized pieces of turkey.



Even the Homestyle Beef Pot Roast was filled with large chunks of beef, potatoes and more. Honestly, it’s better than the beef stew that I make for my family.


With the holiday season upon us, I know a lot of people are worried about gaining weight. I know that I am. I always worry about gaining weight due to the homemade cookies, cakes, large family meals and more. You can easily put on weight during the holidays.

So what happens when January 1st rolls around? You are probably worried about how you are going to lose the weight. Jenny Craig is certainly a great option.

Even better… why not consider joining Jenny Craig now – before the holiday season is in full swing. I know that it might seem like a crazy idea but it’s actually a great way NOT to pack on the pounds during the holidays. You’ll not only learn to eat right and exercise, you’ll also still be able to enjoy delicious foods. Instead of a handful of Christmas cookies you can enjoy Pumpkin Spice Cakes or a Chocolate Peppermint Cake instead. You’ll still get to enjoy a sweet (and delicious!) treat, but without the weight gain.

Healthy eating with Veestro


Microwave Meal

Do you ever get bored with the foods that you are eating? Me and my family sure do. It seems like we eat the same foods week after week.

I hate to admit it but I often rely on pre-made foods. I rather not, but there are times when I am pressured for time and need to whip up a quick meal.

It’s always been a dream of mine to have my very own gourmet chef. Not only could my family have delicious, gourmet meals night after night (and different meals each week!), but I could also make sure that the meals were healthy and made with real ingredients and not pre-made “gunk.”

I highly doubt we will ever have our own personal chef, so all I can hope for is some extra time and great cookbooks where I can learn to make new thing. In the mean time it IS possible to enjoy healthy, gourmet meals from Veestro.

Veestro delivers 100% plant-based, organic, non-GMO, chef-prepared entrees, soups and juices. Their service is available nationwide. It’s like having your own personal chef without the expense of one.

According to Veestro;

Plant-based diets naturally promote weight loss, resulting in long term sustainable weight loss. They are low in saturated fats, high in fiber, and reduce excess cholesterol intake. And while it is always possible to overeat on high-calorie foods, this is much harder to pull off on a plant-based diet. Fruits and vegetables contain mostly water, keeping you feeling full without consuming a lot of calories. They are also rich in antioxidants, plant sterols, phytochemicals, and potassium, which are all thought to reduce the risk of heart disease (just another perk of a plant-based diet!)

The folks at Veestro understand that not everyone has the time to cook, they know you are busy, but they also know that you want to eat a wholesome and nutritious meal. At Veestro everything is made fresh, using all-natural ingredients, no preservatives or animal products.  You won’t have to worry about recipes, shopping or cooking. You don’t calculate ‘points,’ keep track of calories, or play games. You just grab a Veestro meal from the fridge or freezer, heat and eat. It’s that easy!

Veestro is now REAL Certified. This means they have met certain criteria in the following categories: Responsible, Epicurean, Agricultural, and Leadership. http://eatreal.org.

Veestro sent me some meals to try out for myself.

I will admit that some of the foods sounded kind of “odd,” and possibly foods I might not enjoy. Thankfully I’m always open to trying out new things and I went into this with an open mind.

Vegetable Lasagna

Vegetable Lasagna

Some of the meals I received I knew I would like such as;

  • Veggie Lasagna
  • Tuscan Calzone
  • Veggie Empanadas
  • Veggie Patty Burger
  • Hearty Vegetable Bean Soup
  • Three Layer Scramble
  • Enchilada Casserole
  • Thai Chicken Stew
  • Savory Croquettes with Veggie Hash

Some sounded a bit unusual and I wasn’t sure I would like them, most especially tofu. I am not a fan of tofu. I also have never had quinoa before so I didn’t know what to expect. Some of the more unique ones include;

  • Kale & Quinoa with Tempeh Bites
  • Red Curry with Tofu and Veggies
  • Golden Chickpea Stew with Quinoa

The meals are made fresh and then frozen for shipment (with the dry ice). Meals should be kept in the freezer, and will last up to 8 weeks in the freezer without compromising flavor or quality. If you choose to keep then in the refrigerator, they will last about a week or two.

The foods from Veestro are easy to prepare. Just pop them in the microwave or oven and enjoy them when they are heated up.

This is “clean eating.” These meals are not made with man-made ingredients or gunk that you can’t pronounce, let alone know what they are. Veestro makes sure to include all the ingredients on every meal. The great thing about these meals is that each and every ingredient I knew what it was. There were no mysteries or surprises.




Admittedly I don’t know what Tamari is (I assume it’s a spice), but the rest of the ingredients found on the meals I received to review I understood.

There were some meals that I absolutely loved, and there were some meals that I didn’t really like. But that is OK. That is why Veestro has different meal options with their Ala Carte section. That allows consumers to order the meals they want.

I think the reason why some of the meals didn’t appeal to me because I am not used to the ingredients. Take for example Quinoa. It’s all new to me so I am not used to the flavor or texture. I think that is an ingredient that would have to grow on people. I’m sure it’s an acquired taste.

The meals do taste freshly made. They don’t have that bland frozen pre-made meal taste to them. After you prepare them and put them on a plate they look as if you made them.

Clean, wholesome eating is not for everyone. It’s something you’d want to ease yourself into. It’s certainly worth considering because healthy eating is so much better for you and your family.

I have a special discount code for readers too – use the code SHESCRIBES to save 20% off your order. 

Veestro has different meal options including the Ala Carte mentioned above where you choose your own meals. They also offer “Meal Packs” including Gluten-Free meals and High protein meals. They also offer a 21 day “kick start” option and for those of you who love juicing, they offer juices too.

Oh yeah! I almost forgot! Veestro sent me some juices to try out too. One was called Johnny Appleseed which was very good. The other flavor (I totally can’t remember what it was called at the moment) wasn’t as appealing to me. It was green in color and I think that is what threw me off. I am not used to the idea of drinking something green.

Veestro might not be “budget friendly” for many people, but if you are interested in eating real foods it’s nice to “get your feet wet,” so to speak, by eating meals from Veestro.

What do you think about Veestro? Does it sound like something you would like to try? Are you into clean eating? Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.

Step up your workout routine with MaxiClimber



I have a confession to make – I hate to exercise. I’m OK with walking and swimming, but aside from that, I am not a fan. My plump body is a good indication of that.

It’s not that I don’t want to exercise. I do (to some degree). It’s just that I feel very self conscious about working out in our condo complex gym. I’m not in shape at all and I feel like people are staring at me, or mocking me, when I work out. For this reason I rather work out in the comfort of my own home – away from the snickering and judging.

We used to have an exercise bike. It was fine and I used it faithfully for a long time. Unfortunately it took up way too much room in our living room and there was no where we could push it out of the way. We ended up getting rid of it.

Another time we had a Gazelle. It worked great and my whole family used it. After a while it started to squeak – A LOT. My husband put WD40 all over it but it didn’t work. It also took up too much room. We ended up giving it to our neighbor.


Without any equipment (aside from videos and hand weights) I haven’t exercised much at home with the exception of taking the dog for a long walk. My daughter uses a hula hoop to exercise with but I can’t use that. I don’t know how to hula hoop.

I’ve been on the look out for a piece of equipment that could provide me with an all over workout, was affordable, and would take up very little space when not in use.

One day I was pitched information about a new piece of equipment I have never heard of before – the MaxiClimber.

MaxiClimber engages all major muscle groups to burn calories and build muscle, utilizing the same movements as rock climbing. The easy-to-setup vertical climber is a total body workout that can help you sculpt lean, sexy legs, rock-hard abs and toned, and strong triceps and biceps. By using your own body weight as resistance, MaxiClimber gives a great cardio and strength training workout without putting stress on the lower joints of your body.

Key Features

It sounded interesting. I like that it’s a total body workout. I also like that it doesn’t put stress on your joints and it’s a great cardio workout (getting your heart pumping is key to a successful workout).

MaxiClimber was kind enough to send me one to review.

When it arrived I was at work. My teenager daughter (who loves to work out) saw the box and asked me if she could open it up. I asked her not to because I worried about her losing any of the pieces. She didn’t listen to me. When I got home the MaxiClimber was already set up. It arrives pretty much assembled.

When assembled (and closed) the MaxiClimber doesn’t look like much. It’s tall and not too wide. When it is opened  you can see what that MaxiClimber is all about.

I think this video by MaxiClimber shows you what MaxiClimber can do for you.


Both of my kids hopped on it and used it with no problem. In fact my daughter works out on it regularly. I’m very impressed that she is so committed to exercising.

I have to admit that I was very intimidated by it when I saw it set up. I didn’t think my 250+ pound body could use it without it tipping over. I cautiously used it the first few times until I felt confident enough that it wasn’t going to tip over on me.

THIS IS A WORKOUT! Oh my! I can barely do 10-15 minutes on the MaxiClimber without my heart beating out of my chest and building up a sweat.


The first few times I used it I felt it the next day. I hurt! That is because I was not used to such and intense workout. My arms, legs, butt and sides hurt. Thankfully the more I used it the better I was and the less I felt it the next day.

It doesn’t look like it will give you much of a workout – but it does. It works out almost your entire body with just this one machine. This includes your upper, lower and core.

Compared to other household exercise equipment (treadmills and bikes), the MaxiClimber helps you to get a more intense, overall workout helping you to burn more calories, tighten and tone your body.


One feature I REALLY like about the MaxiClimber is that it folds up easily and can be pushed into a corner or a closet to get it out of the way when not in use. You can’t easily do that with an exercise bike and most treadmills are too bulky.

We live in a tiny condo so space it at a premium in our home. Being able to tuck the MaxiClimber out of the way is a huge selling point for me. It’s also light enough to move around. My daughter is petite and has no problem moving the MaxiClimber around.

I have to admit that I’ve slacked off a bit the past month using the MaxiClimber. Between end of the school year stuff (finals), our daughter’s senior prom (looking for the dress, shoes, hair, makeup…) and graduation I have been on teh go-go-go pretty much all month long. I was so overwhelmed by everything the day after graduation (a Saturday) I slept pretty much the entire day to make up for a month of running all over the place.

Make sure you wear good sneakers when using this equipment. Do not try and do it barefoot. I did and it HURTS! You need to wear good shoes. It’s also safer that way too.

Please ignore my son's backpack and bed pillow on the floor in front of the climber. As you can see it tucks out of the way. Normally it's on the other side of the dresser against the wall. Our daughter had used it and didn't put it back (thus the reason why my son threw his backpack in front of it - that is where he puts his backpack normally).

Our daughter had used it and didn’t put it back (thus the reason why my son threw his backpack in front of it – that is where he puts his backpack normally).

Now that things have settled down a bit I am going to use the MaxiClimber on a regular basis. I plan on starting out with 10-15 minutes 3-4 times a week then gradually increase the work out time and days. Ideally I’d like to reach 30 minutes per day 6 days per week. That is an easily obtainable goal to have.

Even my son who doesn’t like to work out at all will use the MaxiClimber. He likes that he can still watch TV while using it. Not exactly the right motivation, but at least he’s moving.

We love our MaxiClimber. You get to work out almost all of your major muscles with just one piece of equipment that can be easily stored away when not in use. It’s a win-win situation if you ask me.

If you would like to learn more about MaxiClimber visit their official website, MaxiClimber.com. You can also follow them on social media (all of the links are found at the bottom of their website).

What do you think about MaxiClimber? Does it look like something you would like to workout with? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Find out what’s new at Jenny Craig


Jenny Craig Box

I am an obese individual. Sadly I’m about 100 pounds overweight for my height.

I have always been overweight (at least since I was around two years old). I have literally tried every diet there is, even crazy diets like the Cabbage Soup Diet, as well as starving myself, forcing myself to throw up after I eat (binge/purge) and exercising like a crazy person. All these things may have helped me to lose weight temporarily, but the weight eventually came back and then some. I’m sure I’ve messed up my metabolism too. Sigh…

I like the convenience of pre-made meals that I can just pop in the microwave to warm up. Some days I’m rushing around that I don’t have time to prepare myself the meal I’d like to have.

Some pre-made frozen meals don’t exactly taste all that fresh. After all, they are frozen meals. Who know show long ago they were made and frozen. When you stop and think about it, eating foods that have been in a frozen state for many months sounds kind of gross.

A couple of years ago I did a review for Jenny Craig. I was given the opportunity to try the program out for a month. I was very impressed with the quality of their food. Even though a lot of the food is frozen when heated up it actually taste freshly made.

I have tried pre-made foods from other weight loss programs and hands down Jenny Craig’s foods are, in my opinion, the best.

I LOVE Jenny Craig’s Turkey Burgers. They are my favorite. I wish they were available for purchase even if you are not on the Jenny Craig plan. I would stock up on those. They are SO GOOD!

Jenny Craig Goodies

Jenny Craig has added some new meals to their ever expanding meal options. They sent me some of the new products to try out for myself. They also sent me some other Jenny Craig “goodies” to add to my Jenny Craig experience.

The needs foods include;

New Foods

Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Potato

Chicken Pesto Pasta

Chocolate Muffin

Lemon Garlic Shrimp

Vanilla Buttercream Cupcake

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna


Yum! Yum! Yum!

I couldn’t wait to try the Roasted Vegetable Lasagna. That was the first one I tried. I would have thought trying the cupcake or muffin would have been my first choice, but I LOVE lasagna so I had to try that first and foremost.

The Roasted Vegetable Lasagna was really good. It tasted like something I could have made. It didn’t taste like frozen food at all.

The Chicken Pesto Pasta was equally as good.

Sometimes frozen foods have meat with fat in them. The chicken in the Chicken Pesto Pasta was good, quality meat.

My daughter wanted to try the Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Potato but I had to try it for myself. It had a lot of broccoli in it (it was a lot of green) but it was tasty and very satisfying. It inspired me to want to make them as a side dish for my family later on that week (baked the potatoes and added streamed broccoli and a sprinkle of shredded cheese).

Chicken Pesto

The muffin and cupcake – oh my! They were both oh-so-good! I would stock up on those and enjoy them every time I have a craving for something sweet or a treat. It’s hard to believe they are part of a healthy eating weight loss plan.

The only meal I have not tried yet is the Lemon Garlic Shrimp. That is the next food item I am going to try.

If you would like to learn more about the foods that Jenny Craig offers as part of their plan visit JennyCraig.com and check out the menu tab “Browse Our Food” under the Food section (it’s a drop down menu).

You can also visit the site to learn more about the plan and to find a location near you.

Jenny Craig can also be found on all the social media sites. All the links are found at the bottom of their website.

Have you ever tried Jenny Craig before? If so, what did you think about the food?

Gut Bacteria and Weight Loss

*This is a guest post. The opinions expressed are those of the author and not my own. 


We all know that eating healthy and regularly exercising can result in a much healthier lifestyle and will provide us with a lean, muscular physique – but is that all there is to the story? Well, researchers in China have been looking at how the bacteria in our body can impact our weight gain or weight loss. Even though cutting out calories and following a strict exercise regime has proven to be effective. When it comes to weight loss, the researchers think that the secret may be in our bacteria and that changing the type of bacteria in our body, could prove to be more effective than simply cutting calories and exercising.

There are many biological reasons for why the bacteria in our body may promote weight gain. Just one of these examples would be the bacteria known as enterobacteria – high levels of this could result in an insulin resistance, meaning that you wouldn’t feel full after eating just a standard meal, you may need double or even triple the amount in order to satisfy your hunger. Already we can see that the bacteria in our gut can play a big role in our body composition and can be a determining factor in whether we gain weight or lose weight. By taking this into account we should be able to further increase our chances of achieving our ideal physique and living a healthier lifestyle.

Calculating our caloric allowance and eating at a calorie deficit is the number one way to lose weight, but even if a person does this, their performance could still be limited. If the bacteria in their body are fighting against them – for example, if their body contained too many enterobacteria.


Scientists in Shanghai recently conducted a study on 93 obese people in order to test their thesis of gut bacteria affecting weight gain and weight loss. The scientists administered the volunteers with a stack of supplements that would promote the growth of certain types of bacteria and diminish the levels of the other bacteria which would limit their performance. They also accompanied this alongside a balanced diet. The participants of the study were weighed, measured, and required to fill out a survey about what food they had eaten in the previous 24 hours. The surveys were taken at 30-day, nine-week, and 23-week intervals.

Over just nine weeks, the participants of the trial lost 5kg (approximately 11lbs) on average. However, due to the nature of the study and the fact that the participants could not be monitored at all times – meaning that they could stray from their diet or do other things that could impact the result of the study. It’s not possible to come to an exact conclusion in regards to how much gut bacteria impacts our weight gain or weight loss. We can’t say that the amount of certain bacteria in our body is the result of our weight gain because there is a correlation, but correlation doesn’t necessarily mean causation.

In the end, a healthy and balanced diet is a proven method if you’re looking to lose weight. Accompany this alongside a strict exercise regime, and you’ll be on your way to your ideal physique in a relatively short space of time. Gut bacteria may place an important role in our body composition, but there isn’t enough evidence to prove this just yet. So for now we will have to settle for the old method of diet and exercise.

Many people fail to lose weight using the standard method, and it’s usually because we are ill-informed and bombarded with ‘fads’ – routines and nutritional plans that promise great results. But never live up to their expectations – however, we can lose weight by looking at the problem objectively and by not making excuses. Firstly you will need a healthy and balanced diet, you can work this out by first calculating your Total Energy Expenditure (TEE). If you want to lose weight, eat below this, if you want to gain weight then eat this number. As far as exercise goes, it doesn’t really matter what you do in the gym if you’re new to fitness, as long as you get in there and do something you will see great results.

Join Gorton’s and Spark People’s 30 Day “Realistic Resolution” Challenge



It’s a brand new year. Chances are you might have set some goals or resolutions for 2015. Most people set out to make positive changes in the new year.

I don’t believe in resolutions, but I do try and set realistic goals for myself. I also break my goals down into monthly goals rather than a big yearly goal because I think it’s more manageable that way.

Loosing weight, eating healthy and exercising more are popular goals/resolutions for many people. I’m one of them. Every year I say to myself “This is the year I FINALLY lose weight.”

I’ve been obese pretty much all my life. I’ve done every diet imaginable. I have found that most are just “quick fixes” and as soon as I go off them I gain the weight back – and more.

The ONLY way to lose weight and keep it off is to change the way you eat. There is no “magic pill” – only quick fixes. If you want the weight to come off – and stay off – you need to eat healthy, drink plenty of water, get your beauty sleep and of course exercise.

You DON’T have to give up all your favorite foods. Everything is “OK” in moderation and if you allot for it. For example, you can have your grandma’s chocolate chip cookies – just don’t eat five of them. One or two is sufficient. And if you opt for those cookies, make an effort to squeeze in a little more exercise to make up for it. That can be as simple as taking the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator or parking your car in the back of the parking lot at the store instead of looking for a spot right in front of the door.

You don’t need diet pills, diet foods or $$$ gym memberships. You just need to approach weight loss realistically.

Have you heard of SparkPeople.com? Spark People is an online weight loss community that can provide you with support, inspiration, recipes and more. Best of all it’s free to join.

Spark People Challenge

To help kick off the new year, Spark People has created the 30 day Realistic Resolutions Challenge.  The challenge includes four weeks of meal plans, 30 mini challenges and even support on social media. Simply use or search for the official hashtag #RealisticResolution (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest). You can learn and get inspiration from others, as well as share your tips and tricks with others. You can even get daily emails sent to you if you are interested in that option.

One food that is great to enjoy when you are on a healthy eating plan is fish. I love fish! I would eat fish every day if it was possible. My husband only likes canned tuna and my son will only eat canned tuna and fish sticks. My daughter, thankfully, enjoys a variety of fish. In fact she eats fish several times a week, mostly for lunch or if I made a dinner she doesn’t like. Her favorite is Gorton’s Salmon.

Gorton’s has a variety of better for you options including baked and grilled fish. The fish is quick and easy to make (either pop it in the oven or microwave). It also tastes great.

I have purchased other fish products and often the fish tastes less than palatable. We’ve even thrown away fish I’ve purchased because it either tastes like it’s been sitting in a freezer for years or it has no taste. With Gorton’s I know we’ll be enjoying fresh tasting, flavorful fish.

I grew up on Gorton’s. Like my son I loved (and still do) fish sticks. I only remember my mom buying Gorton’s.

Gorton’s sent me a wonderful package to help me start off the new  year eating right. The package included some product coupons, an exercise DVD, insulated bag (to carry home my Gorton’s products in) and two books – The Spark Story (an inspirational look behind Spark People) and an awesome Spark People cookbook.

My daughter was especially excited to have the product coupons, because like I mentioned earlier, she eats fish several times a week for lunch.


Gorton’s offers consumers forteen perfectly portioned, protein packed products – three of which are Gluten free!

Check out some of their varieties including Simply Bake Tilapia, Haddock and Salmon.

Did you know that fish provides your body with heart healthy Omega-3.

If you are looking to start off the new year eating healthy and taking care of YOU, you should join the 30 Day Realistic Resolution Challenge. What’s more, Gorton’s fans can participate in the Gorton’s “Eat Smarter” Sweepstakes for a change to win a $500 weekly prize or the $5,000 grand prize.

For more information about Gorton’s visit Gortons.com. You can also find the brand on social media (all links are found on their home page).

For more information about Spark People visit SparkPeople.com. I am not sure if they have a social media presence.

Do you plan on joining the 30 Day Realistic Resolution Challenge?
