Medifast Food Reviews: Southwest Style Eggs
The last time I was on the Medifast diet plan I was a big fan of the Medifast Original Style Eggs. This time I’m not sure how I feel about them. Maybe my tastebuds have changed or maybe they changed the formulation since the last time I was on the diet. Whatever it may be, they aren’t my favorite food anymore, but I don’t mind them at all and as one of the few savory (instead of sweet) items on the menu, they are a welcome change of pace from Medifast crunch bars, pancakes and Medifast brownies, etc.
Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for the Southwest Style Eggs. Of course, I’m probably mostly at fault. These were introduced not long before my previous quit and I never got around to ordering them, probably because I read the ingredient list. When I think of Southwest food, I think “spicy”.

Apparently, when Medifast hears Southwest, they think “bell peppers”. Which I hate! Naturally I didn’t think to check the ingredients until my box of food had arrived though and because I like the original eggs I just went ahead and ordered a full box instead of a sample packet.
I did decide to go ahead and try them anyway though because I thought the bell peppers might be minced up well enough for me to not mind them. My issue with them is texture rather than flavor. And what actually happened is that when I went to prepare the eggs, most of the non-liquid ingredients remained stuck to my mixing bowl. I could have scraped them off into my pan, but I decided not to. 🙂
Based on how the eggs tasted, I think I made the right decision. The flecks of pepper that were in the eggs tasted nasty and crunchy to me. If you happen to like peppers though I think this is easily solved. Most of the powdered meals that need to be reconstituted with water respond very well to soaking.
So if you are going to order the Southwest style Eggs I recommend that after mixing them with water, you let them soak for an hour or two before preparing them. If you enjoy eggs for breakfast, you can always soak them the night before so you don’t have to wait around.
