Your question was: Zucchini nacho chips for Medifast.

Speaking of chips, I saw a recommendation to microwave pepperoni slices until crispy then use as a chip. I know pepperoni is not OP necessarily, but it is a no carb chip option.....

Here is a link to zucchini pizza crust...there is alot of great ideas on this persons site...check it out!..

Comment #2

Holy Moly those are high fat counts. I miss cheese as much as the next person but sheesh!..

Comment #3

Yeah these aren't exactly on plan recipes. If I have time, I'll try to rework them to be OP, but they can't be used as is...

Comment #4

They probably use full fat cheese...but with lowfat cheese I think they might be doable...on occasion..

Not something one should consume daily.

Not really much different from the cauliflower pizza crust. They are just guidelines I thought I would share..

Comment #5

On the pepperoni "chips" thing, if you're going to try them it'd probably be best to use turkey pepperoni. Hormel makes it, and there's a lot less fat in it..

I do Parmesan "chips" when I get the munchies. We're allowed 1 tbsp of Parmesan as an optional condiment, so I divide it into thirds and sprinkle each in a tight circle on a plate sprayed with Pam then tap them down flat. Microwave for a minute or so until slightly browned, let cool for just a sec and peel off with a table knife. They're salty, crunchy and cheesy..

But the other recipes, with 13 and 20 grams of fat per serving? I average 20 grams per day (MF and L&G combined). Those recipes would ruin me!..

Comment #6

Turkey Pepperoni shares a similar problem to Turkey bacon, sodium content. This diet is not only low fat and low carb, but it's also low sodium, calorie and caffeine restricted.

There are some atkins/south beach recipes you can modify and make them OP. For example those recipes would work if you combined it with a Medifast meal. You could sub out the cheese for crumbled nacho chili cheese puffs. But most recipes your gonna want to avoid, like bacon wrapped broccoli dipped in nacho cheese, that's great for atkins, but terrible for this diet...

Comment #7

Oh gosh!!! I miss that part of Atkins! LOL I loved all the bacon. But I sure do feel healthier on Medifast...

Comment #8

Huge point about the recipes being fatty. Was hoping some experienced MF'er could give some pointers on how to use the recipes on occasion and be able to enjoy some nachosIf anyone has any better ideas I would be more then willing to hear them!.

Thanks for all of your responses!..

Comment #9

I could see using an egg white or eggbeaters, some shredded zucchini and some laughing cow (LC) cheese (counts as a fat serving - 1 mini round of regular or 2 mini rounds of lite).

Perhaps bake or fry up in a non stick pan then top with bits of LC cheese and broil to melt. I could see that working.

Hope that helps...

Comment #10

Good point about the sodium factor. I'm not a pepperoni fan, so suggested the turkey version simply based on the lower fat content.

For me, trying to imitate high-fat, high-calorie foods just triggers cravings. Part of my Medifast experience seems to involve retraining my taste buds to appreciate the simple goodness of steamed veggies and lean proteins..

Oh, and Denise, congrats on winning that Wii Step Aerobic challenge!..

Comment #11

Yes... I think this would be do-able with the zucchini, egg beaters, and 1/2 the cheese in a low-fat variety... and then cut to serve 2-4 people depending on if you want toppings or not...

Comment #12

Okay...found one with cauliflower!!!.

I am sure it can be adjusted to suit how much or little you want to have to stay OP. If anyone figures out a ratio....let us all know...I will be experiementing this weekend...Just the thought of a few of these on a taco salad or dare I say....Nachos!!! with MSF crumbles!!.
