On the Jenny Craig program, we’re all about making sure you lose weight whilst feeling full and satisfied!

A key part of the program involves ‘Free Foods’ to help personalise your menu and ensure you get plenty of flavour and variety into your day. Free Foods are foods with few kilojoules and can be eaten freely as part of the Jenny Craig menu. These foods include non-starchy vegetables (such as carrots, broccoli, capsicum etc.), herbs, spices, and flavour enhancers (like stock, mustard, vinegar etc.). By using these Free Foods to add extra volume, flavour and variety to your menu you’ll be able to lose weight while staying satisfied.

The Jenny Craig products provide the basis for each of your meals, you can then add your favourite non-starchy vegetables to add balance and even more variety to your day. Free foods can be used to create complementary side dishes to your Jenny meals or can be mixed through your main dishes to increase the volume and boost the flavour of your Jenny meals to suit your own taste preferences. Your Consultant will help you learn how to create a balanced meal plan with our delicious meals and snacks.

 

To get you started, here are some yummy ways to add Free Foods into your Jenny Craig meals :
