Does anyone know of a brand of sausages that are on plan? Maybe a turkey sausage? The Medifast on the list have gluten in them and I can't eat them. Sausages sound lovely with the pancakes. Thanks so much..

There's some light sausage that I used prior to Medifast and I think the calories, fat and carbs are pretty good. They're also gluten free. But, I haven't checked with Nutrition support yet so I suggest you run it by them first..

I don't see the nutrition info on their site, but this is off a box I have:.

There are some chicken sausages that fit the Lean portion. They aren't really recommended but allowed occasionally. I am going to the store tomorrow and I'll try to post the kind I got earlier this month. If you are in Washington state, there is a kind called Isernio's that someone on the boards told me about. You can also google the name and find out more about them. Maybe they even deliver..

I believe Morningstar Farms has a veggie sausage that is OP? Can't recall what it is off the top of my head though..

Comment #3

Morningstar Farms Veggie Sausage patties are REALLY good. They taste and smell like real sausage. I am not very fond of the vegetarian options but the veggie sausage is a staple.

Comment #4

Ohhh morningstar veggie sausage patties are delicious. Both the plain and maple variety. You get 3 for a lg portion ( no fats). In fact I like them better than " real" sausage!!.

Comment #5

I think the problem is that Tamazon said she can't have Morningstar Farms because they have gluten in them..

Comment #6

Ahh I completely missed that! Possibly Nutrisystem will have some options available for you?.

Possibly run this by NS? http://www.jennieo.com/products/Brea...eySausage.aspx definitely high on the fat content though, so possibly sparingly?.

Comment #7

Awhhh I missed it too. I saw sausage and got excited. Lol ooopsy.

Comment #8

Thanks for the great suggestions. I'll check them out and run them by NS.

Everyone raves about the Morningstar Farms ones.....but they have gluten. I had them in my basket before I thought to look (and I always read the labels). I could taste them. They would have been really low cal for me. LOL..

I saw some Hillshire Farm Chicken Hardwood Smoked Sausage yesterday. They have 45 calories per oz. so 5 ounces would be 225 calories. 2.5 grams of fat per oz. so 5 ounces would have 12.5 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of carbs per oz. so 5 oz.

so 5 oz. would have 20 grams of protein. The sodium would be 1100 mg for 5 ozs. So, someone who know the program better than I could probably tell us if this would be on program for once in a while..

I make my own. I suppose you could put them in casings, but I just make patty's.

For italian I use:.

* 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 pounds ground chicken breast.

*1 cup grated zuchini.

* 3 cloves garlic, chopped.

* 3 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves.

* 1 teaspoon fennel seeds.

* 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper, 1/3 palm full.

* 3/4 teaspoon salt, eyeball it.

And for breakfast sausage I use mrs. dash and a little maple extract instead of fennel.

Directions.

Mix chicken with garlic, parsley, cheese, fennel seeds, pepper, and salt. Form 6 large, thin patties, 4 to 5 inches, or 12 small patties, 2 to 3 inches. Preheat a large, nonstick skillet and fry sausage in extra-virgin olive oil, 3 or 4 minutes on each side over medium to medium- high heat..

Comment #11

Sounds great. In your instructions you mention cheese but I don't see cheese in the ingredients list. Can you clarify? How do you count the sausage? I want to try it!.

Comment #12

Wow, thanks for the recipe. I'll be sure to try that.

Looks like the Jennie-0 turkey sausages are ok too. Thank you SassyMama for posting the question on the nutritionist board..

I found a chicken sausage at Costco yesterday but they are more dinner-like than breakfast-like. They are called Hans' All Natural Gourmet Chicken Sausage with Sun-dried tomato and provolone. They are gluten free. I had 2 for my lean tonight and they are very good. Here are the stats per link:.

130 calories.

6 gm. fat.

2 gm. carbohydrate.

15 gm protein.

570 gm sodium ( kinda high?).

Two would be a lean portion (no additional fats) but this would be a once in a while food because sausages like this are not really recommended. Others can chime in here and tell us what they think..

Comment #15

I've used the Chicken burgers from Costco and eat them wrapped in lettuce. They taste almost like the real thing..

Comment #16

I've had these for the occasional lean to mix things up a bit. They are truly delish and appeared to fall within the guidelines of a lean with no extra fat (that's how I used them - 2 links). Oh and I definitely prefer the sun dried tomato and provolone over the spinach ones too. My daughter picked up the spinach ones and I tried them for one meal and..... well........ while they were ok, just no. Not for me LOL!.

Comment #17

I have a question- someone mentioned having them with the pancakes. How does that work? Is that eating a Medifast meal plus your Lean for the day? Sorry... newbie here desperate for anything that resembles normal..

Comment #18

Yes, that would be your Medifast meal and lean for the day if you ate the full serving. Or you could have part of a serving of sausage and save the rest of your lean for later in the day..
