With winter in your rearview mirror, you may be thinking about freshening up your spring wardrobe, cleaning out your pantry or mixing up your workout routine… it’s that time of year! Here in the Jenny Craig kitchen, we’ve got change on our minds, too—and it’s taking the form of six exciting new foods for spring. Here’s a quick overview of the deliciousness, along with some ideas for making each meal even more satisfying.
Hello, breakfast! For those of you who like to start your day with just a dash of decadence, this whole-grain goodie is JUST the thing: moist, packed with chocolate chips and Jenny Craig-approved. Enjoy with handful of fresh raspberries—pure morning heaven!
Broccoli & Cheese Potato
Getting your veggies never tasted so good! This Jenny Craig lunchtime favorite is officially back in the lineup, with tender baked potato mixed with chopped broccoli and cheddar cheese—all blended with a creamy, ultra-flavorful sauce. Pair with a handful of carrot sticks and a packet of Jenny Craig Ranch Dressing.
Chicken Pesto Pasta
The ultimate balmy-evening dinner: flavorful grilled chicken, zucchini and yellow squash tossed with cavatappi pasta and sun-dried tomatoes in a basil pesto sauce. Toss a large handful of spinach in Jenny Craig Balsamic Dressing for the perfect wingman!
Lemon Garlic Shrimp
You may not even believe that this brilliantly balanced dinner is good for you: garlicky shrimp in savory butter sauce with a twist of lemon, served over whole wheat pasta with tomatoes and yellow carrots. To make a simple side salad, toss chopped cherry tomatoes and minced basil with a packet of Jenny Craig Balsamic Dressing.
Roasted Vegetable Lasagna
For those days when your body thinks it’s still winter, indulge in this hearty dinner. Our Italian-inspired favorite has layers of pasta with ricotta cheese and tomato sauce, stuffed to the brim with zucchini and mushrooms, then topped with Asiago and Romano cheeses.
Vanilla Buttercream Cupcake
We wouldn’t want our popular Red Velvet Cupcake to get lonely, would we? This totally craveable vanilla cupcake is topped with rich buttercream frosting and festive sprinkles—the perfect way to celebrate the little victories in your life, without straying off-track.
