I'm on my third day of Medifast, and I can't seem to get the oatmeal or soups to dissolve completely. Can anyone help me with this please?.

Thank you!.

Your question was: Medifast Oatmeal and Soups Lumpy?.

The soups I just throw in the shaker jar - shake really hard after I release the air before it explodes on me....Wait then enjoy....

Oatmeal ....... YUCKO but I hear some cook it on the stove..

Comment #1

The soups are best if you add the water at least 30 minutes before eating them. It helps rehydrate the ingredients- nothing is worse than crunchy soup in my opinion! I add the water and stir mine before work, then just heat it up several hours later at lunch..

As for the oatmeal, I like mine lumpy...

Comment #2

Isn't oatmeal SUPPOSED to be lumpy? hehe. As for the soups, I use a mini whisk for soups and hot drinks. Works wonderful. Make sure you let your soups soak for a while though...

Comment #3

The trick is to soak the soups for a few hours at least. My preferred method (thanks to the MFer who posted it) is to take 2-4 packs of the soup, add low sodium broth and a can of Rotel or no salt added veggies and cook on low in the crockpot for a few hours (I also add an additional can of water as the soup cooks down).

The chicken noodle soup is awesome with low-sodium chicken broth and a can of Rotel. I've also done it with a thai chicken curry broth and a can of Nutrisystem green beans. Going to try the beef stew in beef broth tonight with a can of Rotel. Just remember to subtract the small amount of green from your LnG and to count the broth as your snack. Amazingly good on a crisp fall day!.

As for the oatmeal, I can only do the waffles. I will play some more with these as time goes on. Welcome aboard!..

I slowly add the liquid to the dry while whisking... and then I stir in between microwaving. That seems to work for me...

Comment #5

I shake almost everything up in the shaker for better mixing before heating anything. If you use hot liquid, it will explode on you. I think almost all the soups need to soak for awhile, esp. the chili.

Magic Bullet is like a blender with little mini jars. The commercials show a couple making about everything for their friends. Medifast also has a similar version called the health mate. You can see it on the order site...

I used to heat my oatmeal in the micro, but now I add 1/2 to 2/3 cup boiling water to it and just stir it up well. I usually prepare mine in a coffee mug and stir it with a teaspoon. then I let it sit for 5-10 minutes before I eat it - the waiting time cools it down to an edible temp, thickens the oatmeal, and rehydrates the fruit!..

Comment #7

Wow glad I read this! Thought I was only one boiling stuff over and unhappy! thanks for info!..

Comment #8

Okay, now I'm curious... waffles? I would die for waffles right about now! How do you make these?..

Comment #9

Here is one variation (I add up to a Tbsp of flax seed meal to mine for better texture):.

Ingredients:.

1 Medifast Oatmeal Packet.

Teaspoon of baking powder.

2 Tablespoons egg whites.

Teaspoon vanilla.

1 shake of Molly McButter.

1 shake of ground cinnamon.

Cup of cold water.

Directions:.

Whisk the above ingredients together and let sit for 5-10 minutes.

Heat a Pam spayed waffle iron (don't forget the Pam as the waffles will stick).

Pour batter and cook until cooker indicates they are done..

Top with a few sprays of I Cant Believe Its Not Butter Spray and Walden Farms Sugar Free Syrup.

You can play with the consistancy a bit by adding/subtracting water and the spices can change (or add a packet of Splenda) according to your taste. Don't expect Eggo waffles as these are more like whole wheat waffles.

***And if you make more than one batch they freeze well and warm up just fine in a toaster..

Zen TX: You're the best thank you so much!..

Comment #11

Magic Bullet is a type of mixer. I use a hand held mixer I bought on Amazon for $30 and it works great. The lumps are the pits...ho ho..

Comment #12

I use the stovetop for eggs and sometimes oatmeal (outside of work). Anytime you can use the stove the food comes out more like it should and it takes minutes - not to mention some of my least favorite foods are now on the top of the list! So avoid the microwave (when you can) and your meals will become much more enjoyable for you!..

Comment #13

For all soups and oatmeals, I double the water (more is better, right? ). Then I stir well with a fork to smoosh out all the lumps before nuking. Soups and chili, I let soak for a couple of hours, but oatmeals seem fine to me without soaking..

Shakes, puddings, and hot drinks, I do in the personal blender. Never any lumps, and the blending adds volume!..

Comment #14

My two little tricks for the oatmeal....put water in first, and use a fork! Here's how I make mine:.

Pour about 4 oz HOT water in a mug or bowl.

Pour in Medifast packet of oatmeal. Sprinkle with Splenda if needed..

Stir with a fork to incorporate liquid into dry (this is what breaks up the lumps!).

Cover (I just place a saucer over the top of my mug) and let it set & steam for 5 to 10 minutes.

Remove the cover and add another 1 to 2 ounces of HOT water to the now paste-like mixture. Just add enough water to make it the texture you like (I like mine smooth & creamy) and eat (with a spoon!).

I have oatmeal nearly every morning at work, and love it. Great way to start the day, and quite filing, too!..

Comment #15

Having lived with instant oatmeal for years, I've learned that doing it in stages works the best. I like to make it in a coffee mug and I mix it w/a spoon then heat it for 30 secs in the microwave. Stir thoroughly and repeat. Repeat once more (for my microwave, your's might be different) ... and it's smooth and ready to enjoy!! I spritz w/a couple of I Can't Believe I'ts Not Butter sprays (read about that somewhere here!!) and sit and enjoy!!!..
