Lunch can be a crucial meal during weight loss and a healthy lunch can easily help in getting quick results when paired with correct diet and exercise. I tried a large variety of dishes for lunch before realizing that wraps and melts are one of the best options for reducing sugar and fat consumption. You can choose between different types of outer coverings or crusts and customize the inner filling based on taste and nutritional value.
Losing those extra pounds looks delicious with the Southwest Fiesta Melt by Nutrisystem. It has a total fat of around 5 grams, 8 grams of proteins, 6 grams of dietary fiber and 240 calories. The crust is made using white and normal whole wheat flour, sugar, salt, water, soybean oil, ascorbic acid, yeast and dough conditioners. The crust is filled using brown rice, corn, black beans, pepperjack cheese, green chili peppers, onions, tomatoes, tomato paste, monterrey, garlic, cilantro, vinegar and vegetable flavors. You can also view the detailed list of ingredients on Nutrisystem to check for any allergic substances before buying the Southwest Fiesta Melt.
It can be prepared easily with the help of an oven or microwave although your appliance can easily vary and you should adjust accordingly. To prepare the melt in a 1,100 watts microwave, you should first remove the wrapper and then cover the melt completely using a paper towel. After this you should place it in the microwave and turn on the device at HIGH or 100 percent power for a duration of 1 minute 45 seconds. Let it cool down for another minute before taking it out and serving on a plate.
For preparing the melt in a conventional oven, you should initially preheat the oven till a temperature of 325 degrees Fahrenheit (F). Put the unwrapped melt over a baking sheet then cover it loosely using foil. Bake for around 30-35 minutes and then let it stand for 2 minutes before taking out and serving the meal. You can serve it with dips such as ketchup, mayonnaise, hot sauce etc.
I liked the taste and flavors of Nutrisystem’s Southwest Fiesta Melt and it felt quite filling too. However, I was also a bit let down as the contents were comparatively dry and didn’t have the expected fiery Mexican taste. Usually I order this delicious meal when I am in a hurry as it can be quickly prepared and paired with veggies and sauces for a healthy and nutritious lunch meal which does not hinder with my weight loss routine.
