New to Medifast this week so pardon the newbie questions! I really like the chicken noodle soup but is there a way to prevent the rubbery or chewy bits in it? Am I cooking too long, not enough? Are the cream soups good? Thanks!..

Ok, hi Im new to Medifast. I just ordered the other day, and according to ups my package should be here tomorrow. But I have seen a lot of ppl on the site, say you need to let the soups soak. Just wondering what you mean by that, like let then soak in water? and how long should you let them soak?..

Comment #2

I start with hot water.. instead of cold.. and have also found that if you put the water in the bowl/glass first and wisk the soup/pudding/oatmeal into it... less lumps. Except for the stew and chili... most soups I let sit for 5 minutes...

I still start with hot water.. but make it in the morning .. wisk it up and stick in the fridge till lunch..

Aren't the "chewy bits" soy or protein (something like that)?.

It is good for you, just swallow them, you need them to stay full!!..

Comment #4

They are yucky dehydrated soy bits and will still be good for you if they are all soft and full of water..

Comment #5

Let them SOAK ~ mix in a bowl or mug with water.

For 2-4 hours ahead of time.... taste 100 times better....

Comment #6

I usually do mine the night before and it has worked well for me..

All I can say is experiment. You asked how much water to soak it in. Your package will tell you. I tend to like mine a tad thinner at times so I use 1 c of water and sometimes only 3/4. Find what works for you but again no worry as the box will tell you the amount..

Good luck...

I never let my soups or stews soak and they seem fine. Just mix them well and make sure there are no lumps. The chili I put in the microwave for an extra minute (I like my soups very hot) and let stand for a couple of minutes. With the stew, I followed the directions and it came out great...

I love the "Let it soak" song! As for me, my microwave has been broken forever so I boil the water on the stove then pour 8-10 oz in my shaker cup with soup packet and wisk, let sit and cool a couple minutes, then enjoy! I don't have much patience to wait longer than that.

Good luck!!!..

Okay, that's priceless.

Soaking and whisking are the key, and any soaking is better than none. -And a small amount of -fresh- salsa... Like a champ!..

Comment #10

I mix mine... microwave for 30 seconds and then stick in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Then cook again according to the directions... Always yummy and NOT crunchy!..

You need to let the soups (and everything really) soak for a while before cooking. Soaking inproves both the taste and texture of most of the Medifast foods...
