I’ve been declaring this is the year of me. While I usually put my family first, I have to make sure I also take care of myself; not just the 3 tiny humans I gave birth to and my darling spouse. It includes making sure I am as healthy as I can be.. and that means losing weight, as painful as that is to say. Since I turned 40, it’s been harder to drop the weight. When I was offered a Jenny Craig 5 Day Starter Kit (available at Walmart) to review, I was intrigued.
With the Jenny Craig 5 Day Starter Kit you get:
- 5 day kit with a variety of 20 meals and snacks
- One month free consultation at any Jenny Craig center or Jenny Craig Anywhere (in person or on the phone)
- Special $50 food savings when you join a Jenny Craig center
You are allowed to supplement your kit with fruit, greek yogurt, string cheese, veggies, and salad.
This is what I got! It was huge.
Look at all the food that came in my kit!
This is one of the breakfasts I had. You can’t go wrong with apple cinnamon oatmeal. This was really good and very filling. It started my day off right. I paired this with a glass of unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
Swedish Style Meatballs and Egg Noodles – I added steamed cauliflower, broccoli and apple. This was actually my favorite Jenny Craig meal. Really filling and tasted terrific.
This is Jenny Craig’s Chicken Salad Kit. I added the chicken salad to a garden salad and dug in. Yum! This came packaged very portably and would be perfect for work.
I paired the ravioli with some more steamed cauliflower and broccoli.
Sample Night Time Snack:
My favorite night time snack was Jenny Craig’s Lemon Cooler Cookies. They were delish, but I forgot to take a pic.
I was actually pretty pleased with the Jenny Craig 5 Day Starter Kit. I actually lost two pounds! Note: “Results not typical. Members following the Jenny Craig program, on average, lost 1-2lbs. per week.”
While I am not sure if I will continue with Jenny Craig, it did teach me to be mindful of what I was eating and to make sure I was really full or not. I really liked that I had the food at my fingertips and didn’t have to stress about cooking different meals for myself.
Have you ever tried Jenny Craig? What did you think of it?
