One Simple Start Recipe That Needs Work

My grilled cheese and vegetable soup. The soup was great, although it needs some protein. The grilled cheese, was lacking. Next time it's real cheese, not this fat-free stuff.

For lunch today I tried the Simple Start grilled cheese with vegetable soup. I can’t say I loved it. I made the soup last week and it is very tasty. I added elbow pasta and stewed tomatoes to it for a nice Italian twist. It’s the “grilled cheese” I have issue with.

The recipe calls for fat-free shredded cheese and two slices of tomato on a light English muffin. Just heat in the oven until the cheese melts.

Easy enough. Problem is fat-free cheese doesn’t really melt. It seems to form a hard shell on top of the tomato.Β  Also, I had to put the muffin in the toaster first. The cheese “melts” too quickly for the muffin to get toasty.

I can have real cheese on Simple Start, but it’s pretty expensive points wise. But in this case it would make for a better grilled cheese.

Finally, I ended up adding a hard-boiled egg to my lunch. This meal really lacks protein. I try to eat 3-6 ounces of protein at each meal. I think the next time I make the soup, instead of the noodles I’ll add chicken or turkey.

  1. Hey, thanks for the heads up on this one πŸ™‚ I just joined today–done it off and on for years but going to give it another go. They really push this Simple Start, but I’ll probably just try out some of them–don’t have the time to prepare such elaborate looking dishes–they are so pretty-looking though! πŸ™‚

    • Most of the dishes are pretty easy and simple to make. It is a good program to kick start your weight loss since it’s just 2 weeks (but you can do it over and over if you like). I’m on week 2 and I’m only doing the 2 weeks. I just needed the kick in the pants after the holidays to get me back on track. Good luck!

      • Yay for you! Can’t wait to sat I’m two weeks in. I know I’ll be feeling a lot better. I’m excited !
